VISAKHAPATNAM: Taking into the view of growing economical, social and physical needs of rural areas, the Centre has shortlisted 11 villages in Araku for development under the National Rural Urban Mission, said Collector Pravin Kumar on Tuesday. 


The collector held a meeting with the district officials. It was decided to conduct baseline survey in the villages to know the basic amenities and the needed fund estimates before chalking out a action plan to execute the project.


He instructed them that the works should be completed within three years at the cost of `100 crore. During the survey, more focus should be given to anganwadis, CC roads, drainage, toilets, drinking water, streetlights, panchayat centres, digital libraries, school buildings, dumping yards and graveyards, the release read. 


To complete the project, 70 per cent fund will be allotted by several departments and CGF fund to be utilised for the remaining costs, he said and added that some works will be completed by making use of NREGS funds.


A report on detailed cost breakdown of funds coming from various departments, the kind of works to be taken up and the budget needed for each facility should be prepared at the earliest, he directed officials.
