Plan to develop 100 villages along the Indo-China border
The state authorities has chosen villages from 11 blocks from bordering districts to be developed as mannequin villages. Of the 11 blocks, 4 are in Pithoragarh district, one in Chamoli, three in Uttarkashi, one in Udham Singh Nagar and two blocks in Champawat district.
“We have now round 100 villages in blocks close to the Indo-China border, which we will develop as mannequin villages. Underneath the Worldwide Border Growth Programme, we’re working to ship a proposal to the Central authorities to develop these villages as Built-in Mannequin Agriculture (IMA) villages for producing employment alternatives,” stated Uniyal.
