Ahmedabad: Gujarat Chief Minister
Narendra Modi on Sunday asked the revenue officials to take a lead
in ensuring effective governance at the taluka level.

"Each taluka of the state has capacity to develop by
itself, and in this spirit the government has reposed
confidence on the taluka level administration under the Apnu
Taluko Vibrant Taluko(ATVT) programme," he said.

The Prant (sub-district appropriate authority)
officers should take a lead in providing able and efficient
governance from the taluka level itself as part of the
government`s policy of decentralisation of administration, he
said, while inaugurating a workshop for them.
Gujarat is celebrating golden jubilee year of
Panchayati Raj and it would be a great opportunity for each
taluka to generate its own resources, manage spending,
coordinate and implement various state programmes, the chief
minister said.
