A Brief Background
The government of Andhra Pradesh with an aim to provide a robust delivery system has introduced the Village/Ward Secretariat system on 2nd October 2019 for strengthening service delivery at the grassroots level and
ensuring transparent, accountable, and corruption-free services to citizens. The Village/Ward Secretary System is the first of its kind in the decentralized grassroots governance in the country.
To realize the goal of ‘Local Self Governance’ propounded by our ‘Jathi Pitha’ Mahatma Gandhi, the government of Andhra Pradesh has made specific plans to decentralize the governance bringing administration to the doorsteps of the household – both at the Village as well as at the ward level through Village and Ward Secretariats System.
The government has identified the need to strengthen governance at the grassroots through effective decentralization of funds, functions, and functionaries. Accordingly, the government has rolled out “Village Secretariat, Village Volunteer, Ward Secretariat and Ward Volunteer System”.
15004 Village and Ward Secretariats have been established across the State. A Village Secretariat was established for every 2000 population and a Ward Secretariat for every 4000 population. The Secretariat system will play a vital role in providing efficient delivery of public services to the needy people through a committed cadre of village level government functionaries.
In order to equip the Village/Ward Secretariat with efficient functionaries, the government has so far selected and positioned 110520 functionaries in Village and Ward Secretariats. Each Village/Ward Secretariat was provided with 11/10 Departmental functionaries. The functionaries positioned in Village Secretariats extend their services for effective implementation of NAVARATHNALU – the commitments made by Government to citizens to improve their living standards.
The Village Secretariat also serves as common service centre through which the people can directly access about 544 Services relating to 28 departments including ration cards, pension cards, aroygrasri cards, etc.
