Utilization of PIP data for Social Mobilization and Government Schemes :  Soon after the completion of PIP process, peoples representatives and various sections of society appreciated the PIP process and the data collected. As a result Government took a policy decision to adopt PIP survey data for delivering various Government services and goods to the needy community.  The first such programme was the issue of ration cards. The ration cards in the state were distributed basing on the PIP survey.

 

And the second instance, the distribution of cycles to school going girls was done on the basis of PIP data. Various departments of the Government are utilizing the data for selection beneficiaries eg., selection of National old age pension beneficiaries, Housing beneficiaries, Land development, etc.,

 

The first and foremost thing for which the PIP data utilized is for social mobilizations i.e., POP and Poor peoples are mobilized to form into new groups. So far 6000 new groups are formed covering 62000 people. And all the SHGs of every village in the District are mobilized to form village organization. So for 840 VOs are formed; all the VO are organized into Mandala sneha samakyas and the representatives of all the Mandal sneha samakyas are formed into Zilla sneha samakyas on March 8th 2004.

 

The CIF is  released on the basis of PIP Data.  PIP data is followed while electing the VO and MS office bearers. Job oriented training (LABS,Pre ARMY,NAC) is given to Youth on the basis of PIP Data.

 

Convergence with Line Department :  While doing PIP survey various departments were invited for participation in PIP process, Mandal Parishad Development officers, Mandal Revenue Officers were invited to take part in the PIP process.  The MRO, MPDOs were also involved in PIP process.  All the District level officers were briefed about PIP process.

 

Mandal level workshops were conducted to give orientation on PIP process to PRIs and Line Departments and got the participation of Line Department and PRIs.  Some of the Sarpanches of Gram Panchayats,  they themselves participated in PIP process.

The Land survey is conducted in convergence with Revenue Department.

Indira Prabha Programme is implemented in convergence with IKP and DWMA.

 

Convergence with PRIs :  Mandal level work shops were conducted with Mandal parishad presidents, ZPTCs, MPTCs, Sarpanches, on IKP and CBO concepts and on revival of defunct groups.  It was found out that wherever the peoples representatives like Sarpanches were involved there the quality and pace of the work was found to be good.

 

3. Institutional Building

 

Identification of POP The identification of the Poorest of the Poor was done by conducting Grama Sabhas in every village by following the method of Participatory Identification of Poor in Ranga Reddy District.  The villagers categorized the people into four categories. The categorization was done by them, basing on socio and economic conditions.  Categories made by the people are :  1.The Poorest of the poor        2. The Poor, 3. Non-Poor(Middle)          4. Non-poor (Rich)

 

Strengthening of Old Groups :   All the SHGs in the District were taken up for strengthening. The services of District Resource Persons were utilized in giving conceptual clarity on SHGs VOs and Leadership qualities.  In 11 Mandals CRPs strategy is used in strengthening old groups.

 

New Groups formed :6000 New groups are formed mostly with the left over poor.

 

Formation of Social Capital :  320 Village Bookkeepers were identified, trained and placed in their respective villages. 280 Community Organizers are already working with SHGs. Gopalamithra services are being utilized in the dairy sector.

 

CRPs 174 CRPs are identified in 29 Mandals @ 6 per Mandal. External CRPs from Ananthpur were attached to internal CRPs  in 11Mandals and both were sent to Model villages on 15 days programme. Under this programme they revived defunct groups, formed new groups with left over poor, and trained existing and new groups. They have also identified and trained book keepers,and prepared Micro Credit Plans (MCP), and trained SHGs on MCP.

 

VOs formation:  All the SHGs in every village were mobilized to form into village organization, so far 840 VOs are formed in the District. 92% of the VOs got CIF and they are lending CIF to SHGs.

 

Vision Building:   The CBOs will take care of the development and the empowerment of people. The poor will rediscover their inner strengths and utilize their strengths to fullest extent. All section of the society will have access to all the public and private services, without any reservations. The bottom up approach in planning will be the order of the day. Where the poor will have  a say in decision making with regard to their lives.  The CBOs (VO,MS) will be in a position to review their staff and maintain their staff on their own, and develop their own social capital and sustain their institutions.

 

Formation and Registration of MMSs, etc., :  So far 840 village organizations are formed and VO registration documentation is prepared for two VOs from each CC, in 18 Mandals. And these VOs registered initially; later on the remaining all VOs will be registered. In Ranga Reddy the registration of VOs is going on in a slow pace, because the CBOs are already in existence in 13 Mandals. Once the registrations of VOs are completed, Mandal mahila samakyas will be formed by federating all the VOs into MMSs under 1995 Mutually Aided Cooperative Societies Act.,

 CCs (64 of 80), APMs (11 of 14) and 11 LAs were trained in similar concepts by DLRG members and also external resource persons from CARE, WASSAN for a period of 18 days class room and 24 days field work. Separate training module, schedule and curriculum were developed for the training.

 

A team of 11 external appraisers (mostly bankers) were trained by DLRG on IKP concept, LEAP and CIF process. An Environment Resource Group (ERG) with 6 members was formed and they were trained for 6 days by CEE.

 

LEAP process in villages:   LEAP process was conducted in villages, some as part of training and some after trainings. The process followed was getting rapport with community, using LEAP tools like resource mapping, value chains, income-expenditure, trade-in trade-out etc prioritization of activities based on the demand and feasibility.

Later, in remaining villages the activities were proposed in Micro Credit Plans prepared by CC, LA, CO, MBK etc SHG wise which were to some extent based on LEAP process. Concerned DPMs/ APOs used to monitor the process in their jurisdiction.

 

Appraisal and Sanction:  The activities, both from LEAP and MCPs, are proposed in sub-project proposals which are supplemented by CC/ APM summary sheet. The sub-projects were appraised by some (3) independent appraisers and mostly by functionaries of line departments (like Agricultural Extension Officer, Agricultural Officer, MDO, EoRD etc) and also by some active community members who have taken up the similar activities effectively previously. After appraisal, the sub-projects are sanctioned by district collector and CIF cheque were given mostly in public functions attended by peoples representatives.

 

CIF Grounding:  Maximum CIF was grounded from March04 onwards. During grounding, necessary prioritization of activities and beneficiaries is taking place. VOs opened bank account in commercial banks in case of non-MACTCS Mandals and in MACTS in case of MACTS Mandals for CIF purpose. A section of Mandal level functionaries of COs, MBKs, DWs etc were trained on CIF grounding and CC/ LAs trained VO EC members. Committees are formed in VOs for different activities of implementation, CIF books for VOs are supplied to villages and MBKs are trained on bookkeeping. VOs entered MoU with IKP and paid 10% beneficiary contribution.

 

Livelihood Associates (LAs) are being trained in sub-sectors by SERP and other agencies and study of livelihoods profile at Mandal level and sub-sector, market studies and work was initiated at district level.

Apart from this direct profit to VO, there are other benefits of this activity like creation of more wage employment, remunerative price for producers, service for producers in the village itself, strengthening groups and VOs, formation of new groups, revival of defunct groups, business skills and self confidence for VO etc.

 

With a view to break tied-up sales and completely benefiting poor producers, agri-input

 

(of fertilizer) cum marketing activity was taken up in 12 villages on pilot basis. A pilot study was conducted with involvement of SERP team and DPMs, LAs of other districts to facilitate action plan for establishing a model procurement centre in Parvathapally village of Basheerabad Mandal. This planning is proposed to be taken up in all other villages where marketing is planned to be taken up. Value chain analysis and resource studies are conducted in some villages for market linkage of Safflower with Marico Company. Apart from volumes, it is planned to move to next higher levels of marketing activity like exhaustive market studies and new linkages, processing and value addition etc.

 

Live Stock Sheep Sub-Sector:   About 4500 families raise about 1,00,000 sheep in Kulkacharla , Gandeed ,Doma,Parigi Mandals. They shear the sheep for Rs. 5 and sell the wool for barely Rs. 2. The quantity of wool is just about 300 grams per sheep. The women make threads and weave it into rough blankets, Which are Sold in shandies (Weekly Markets). The IKP project has invested Rs. 5 lakhs each in two worksheds. They weave everyday for 2-3 hours and get Rs. 300 per blanket woven in 14 days. The market for blankets is dropping because people prefer softer varieties.

In the LABS training, total 1054 candidates are trained in 8 centres of Tandur, Medchal, Hayathnagar,  Ghatkesar, Vikarabad, Chevella, Ibrahimpatnam and Kandukur centres. Out of this 676 got placements. Shamshabad and Moinabad centres have recently started. Placement verification of  Kandukur and  Chevella  are under process. 

 

The organisations where the candidates are placed include some reputed companies like Pantaloons, Big Bazar, Caf Coffee Day, Westside, Loft, Prasads Multiplex, Lifestyle, Tata Indicom, Taj Banjara, Karvy etc. Efforts are on to place many candidates in recently came up Hyderabad Central, one of the biggest retail outlets in the country. Opportunities in these kinds of organizations add lot of value for their careers and there are bright prospects of very good opportunities in future.

 

The observation is that placements are not in the sense of permanent job kind of thing and this is general fact also. Just like in other careers with even much better qualification, there will be fluctuations in placements and it takes at least 1-2 years to learn and settle down. The placements depended to most extent on interest of candidates and their willingness to work hard and learn. There are instances that some candidates did not take up even decent placements

 

The average salary in all placements is around Rs. 1900 per month. There is deviation with regard to Hayathnagar and Tandur centres. In Hayathnagar, many students (32) did not take up placements. Average salary is low as of now in Tandur because most of the courses are skill based courses (White Goods Services, Multi-skill work) which need more time for on the job training and get more salary.

 

As far as salary is concerned, many students were convinced by the offer. The average salary in all placements is around Rs. 1900 per month. Medchal and Ghatkesar did well with respect to salary both with an average salary of Rs. 2000. There is good potential in these centres and students also have shown keen interest (particularly because of proper selection of students).  As the data indicate, CRS and ITES courses have good placement potential with average salary of more than Rs. 2000. Even though Hospitality course students got better offer in Medchal and Ghatkesar centres, it is not so in Hayatnagar mostly because of interest of the candidates.

18. RICE CREDIT LINE

In spite of close proximity of the R.R.District to the Hyderabad, there is a migration among the poor for food grains and to seek employment opportunities in lean season of agriculture. Certain parts of district migrate towards the paddy field areas for work and to get food grains. Staple food in the district is rice, the cultivable land under paddy cultivation is very less. Due to frequent droughts and 3 years of continuous less rain fall, the paddy cultivation is further depleted.

 

To address the food grains requirements of poor particularly poorest of the poor 48 no. of RCL subprojects are sanctioned & grounded in the district benefiting 7144 of families. Here most of the grain sellers are wage labourers, and mode of repayment is weekly intervals. In village organizations 3 committees are evolved one for purchase of food grains other for distribution of grains and another for collection of repayment from the beneficiaries. These committees rotate every 3 months in cyclic manner i,e after three months purchasing committee will become distribution committee and distribution committee and so on.

 

Impact of RCL:

1.      Most vibrant self reliant, VO are emerged.

2.      New groups especially from poor and poorest communities are mobilized and formed.

3.      The value of the VO has increased.

4.      The more defunct groups are now functioning.

5.      Poor and Poorest of poor are getting food security

6.      In the district and particularly in Andhra Pradesh context, the procurement of food grains was the responsibility of man, now due to the RCL, the women are getting rice for the family. It is resulting in sharing the responsibility  among the couple, and also the value of the women has increased in the family in particular and in the society is general.

 

The mental pressure on the women for want of food grains every morning is reduced and now families are feeling happiness and doing and concentrating on day to day works normally without any pressures and agony.

 

7.      Migration only for want of food grain is reduced.

8.      As families have acquired food security they are not willing their children to be child labourers.

9.      As the Village Organization is working on the social aspects like this, the value of it among men, youth, non-officials and officials of the line departments and bankers are also have been increasing regularly.

10.  As this activity generated weekly meetings, there the space for higher capacity building is increased.

 

Rice Credit Line by procuring Rice from open market is taken up by 3 VOs on pilot basis. They went on exposure visit to Guntur district for this intervention. It is planned to take up pilots in some villages and then scale up the activity to other villages. Mandals are being identified by criteria like prevalence of drought, migration etc for taking up this activity. The idea is to go ahead with Rice from open market.

 

19. Child labour :

In Ranga Reddy District various Non-Governmental  organizations are working on the Child labour issue. One such NGO is Mavidi Pudi Venkata Rangayya Foundation. The project has collected data on  child labour during the time of PIP survey. The child labour identified are joined in various bridge schools operated by National child labour project schools.
