Renovation of LGs front offices

Renovation of LGs front offices

The decentralisation process in Kerala not only transferred administrative power from the state government to the local governments (LGs), but also brought in participatory planning into the process. It also devolved a much larger quantum of funds to LGs through statutory and formula based transfer. At present, the LGs in the state have several functions and are responsible for delivering services by institutions which have been transferred to them. The state has been undertaking several initiatives in the past to improve the capacity of LGs. However, institutionalization of systems and good practices is a continuous challenge. KLGSDP was conceived on the realisation that there is a need to further improve the quality of services provided by the LGs and the institutions transferred to them. An amount of Rs.6,20,59,624/- were utilised by KLGSDP for renovating the front offices of Grama Panchayats and Municipalities
