ACCOMPLISHMENTS SO FAR: Under the leadership of Collector sir, we have performed very well in controlling coronavirus. There has been no major community transmission of corona, no major outbreak or #hotspot. Under National Rural Livelihood Mission (#NRLM), hundreds of women of self-help groups have created more than Rs. 25 lakh worth of masks and other essentials such as PPE kit and sanitizers. They have setup stores in Maharaj Bada, Inderganj & Haat Bazaar Phool Bagh. Their #products are today purchased by offices & shopkeepers. Our online #panchayat taxation system so successful that it was replicated in entire states by the government. To provide reliable online services during lockdown, we launched #ServeGwalior app which is run by our women SHGs. App is handled by a team of professional who were trained by us. App benefitted #farmers as they could easily sell their fruits & #vegetables online during lockdown. App was launched on 26 January with majorly females handling the back-end & their husbands doing the delivery. It proved to be a successful venture with Rs. 1.5 crore turnover.
