Supporting Last Mile Governance

UPES has been instrumental in helping support the last-mile governance in villages located in the vicinity of its campuses. It was observed that many elected representatives of village panchayats, including gram Pradhan's, deputy gram Pradhan's and ward members, did not understand their rights, duties and entitlements (given under the Panchayati Raj Governance system) too well. Therefore, as a part of its CSR activities, UPES stepped in and organized a three-day workshop for these office bearers, which explained to them many aspects of the panchayat system and Central and state government schemes that they could benefit from.
