Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that public cooperation has been important for better implementation of PM Swanidhi Yojna, Ayushman Bharat Yojna, Housing Scheme and Swamitva Yojana in Madhya Pradesh. Even during both the waves of Covid, containment efforts with participation of citizens yielded good success. If other states have considered this work done in Madhya Pradesh as a model, then the main role behind it is the cooperation of the common people as well as the guidance received from Prime Minister Modi.
Chouhan was giving a presentation about the innovations and implementation of schemes in Madhya Pradesh at the conclave of Chief Ministers convened by Prime Minister Modi in Varanasi Tuesday. Chouhan also informed about the creative activities of the Anand Department started a few years back in Madhya Pradesh and efforts to keep the common people happy by keeping them away from depression.
Chouhan informed that public participation is being obtained in policy making, decision making and monitoring. Under policy making, suggestions were received from the public in different categories of the Panchayats. Ladli Laxmi, Sambal Yojana, Mukhyamantri Teerth Darshan Yojna are the outcomes of Panchayats. The plans were made based on the suggestions received. All this came to fruition in the earlier years.
During the era of Covid, 30 thousand 600 Crisis Management Groups were formed at the district level, development block, gram panchayat and ward level for the management of the pandemic and vaccination, which included religious leaders, public representatives, citizens, doctors and representatives of sanitation organisations. Similarly, about 1.5 lakh volunteers joined the “I Corona Volunteer” awareness campaign. In the “Yoga-Se-Nirog” programme, lakhs of Covid patients received online training from three thousand yoga instructors. In “Yuva Shakti – Corona Mukti Abhiyan”, more than 10 lakh college students were trained for vaccination and Covid friendly behaviour to protect against Covid. The work of vaccination has been very successful. 94 percent eligible people of the state have got the first dose and 77 percent have got the second dose. The public has given full cooperation in covid management.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan informed that Ankur programme has been started from June 5 on World Environment Day. Provision has been made to give digital certificates and Pranavayu awards to the citizens who planted saplings. Along with the birth anniversaries and marriage anniversaries of the family members, a call has been made to plant saplings in the memory of the deceased family members.
Chief Minister Shri Chouhan informed that monitoring of ration distribution, mid-day meal programme, Janani Suraksha Yojana, Ladli Laxmi Yojana, social security pension, scholarship distribution and Sambal Yojana is being done with public cooperation.

The ministers in charge of the district nominate the government members in the committees.
In the conclave, Chief Minister Shri Chouhan informed that in the year 2010, a law was implemented in Madhya Pradesh to provide civic services to the citizens within a time limit. At present 560 services are being provided under the Public Service Guarantee Act. This has saved the public from the trouble of wasting time by visiting the offices again and again for their work. Many rules and procedures have been amended and simplified. Digitization of records has been done with the help of programmes like Digital India Land Record Modernization. Land records have been made available in digital form. CM public service has been implemented since last one year. In this five services – Khasra copy, Khatauni, map, income certificate and local resident certificate are made available on mobile by dialing toll free number. The innovations of deemed service delivery, online diversion and online land mortgage process have been adopted. In the last three years, copies of more than three and half crore land records have been made available online. Six and a quarter lakh cases have been resolved through land purchase and sale (registry) Bhulekh portal integration.
