Vikas News – October 2017 issue
 

Dear Users,

Vikaspedia wishes all its users a Happy Diwali

As we celebrate the festival of lights with joy and splendour, let us also resolve to do it the green way… Harit Diwali… Swasth Diwali.

Access to electricity is an important driver for development. Lakhs of households in our country are yet to realise their dream of owning an electricity connection. A scheme has been recently launched by the Government of India to fulfill this cherished dream. Titled as “Pradhan Mantri Sahaj Bijli Har Ghar Yojana - Saubhagya”, the scheme aims to ensure electrification of all willing households in the country in rural as well as urban areas. Under the scheme, poor households would be provided electricity connections free of cost. Other households would also be provided electricity connections on payment of Rs.500 only, which shall be recovered by the DISCOMs/Power Departments in ten instalments along with electricity bills. To know more information about the scheme, do visit the section “Schemes for You”.

As you shop online / use digital payment methods this festive season, be wise to be aware of likely threats. In the section “InfoSec for You” we enlighten you with “Tips for secure usage of Credit/Debit cards”.

Hailing from a farming family of a remote village in Perambalur district, Tamil Nadu, Mr Sakthivel shares his experiences of being a part of Vikaspedia community and sharing information for the benefit of wider audience. Visit the “Volunteer of the month” section to know more on this.

The regular sections on Vacancies/Recruitment notices from government agencies and Domain-wise content update also find place in this issue of Vikas News.

Happy reading………………
