The organisation has also agreed to work with the government to curb incidences of malnutrition. The state’s planning department will work with it to develop for ‘model data platform’ for reviewing the progress of various flagship schemes. The home department executed another MoU with Tata Trusts for a pilot project involving the provision of legal aid, health, and mental health services, training, and skill upgrades within prisons.
It has also been decided to reform services at the Nagpur Mental Hospital, which will then serve as a prototype for other similar centres. A joint initiative aimed to bridge the technology gender divide by improving ‘internet literacy’ in rural Maharashtra has been undertaken too. The ‘Internet Saathi’ initiative will cover women in 1,200 villages in the first phase. “The second phase is aimed at promoting internet literacy among women in another 15,000 villages. The state will be the first to take up a plan to spread internet literacy across its villages,” the CM informed the House. Another MoU was signed to upgrade the skill set of language teachers in rural schools.
There shall also be a collaboration for developing ‘model development plans’ for Nagpur and Chandrapur.
It's a great step of Government of Maharashtra towards colleges and linking them which makes it the first state in the country.
