Greenpeace and PVCHR cordially invite you to participate in RGGVY social audit in Uttar Pradesh (Azamgarh district) on May 10
Access to energy is an issue that India is still struggling with its millions of households remaining in dark even after 64 years of independence. Rural India has been neglected in-spite of large capacity additions in power generation in the country. Quality and reliable power is still a dream for most rural parts of the country. A revolutionary step is required to provide "Energy Justice" to rural areas.
Government of India initiated Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) in 2005 with aim to provide electricity access to all household by 2012. It is one of the flagship schemes of the government.
We certainly appreciate the Government's initiative to provide "electricity to all". However, we have noticed some of the major policy and implementation hurdles which definitely should be addressed before rolling the scheme out again for 12th five year plan (2012-17).
Greenpeace along with People's Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) in Uttar Pradesh will carry out social audit of the scheme. The aim of the audit is to bring out the implementation reality of the scheme and examine whether the mandate of the scheme has fulfilled aspirations of Rural India or not.
We are cordially inviting you/your organisation to be part of the "Public Hearing" (Jan Sunvai) in Uttar Pradesh. The date of the "hearing" is
May 10 (Uttar Pradesh – Azamgarh District)
Venue: Shahpur Kanungo ka bagicha (opp. khutahan primary school), Rashepur Bazar
Looking forward to your support and cooperation to make the hearing successful
