Mukesh Kumar, Deputy Commissioner of Dumka district, Jharkhand, gave a presentation on basic infrastructure in the presence of Prime Minister and a host of Central Ministers and secretaries. During his presentation, he stressed on the need to develop basic infrastructure in these regions. Along with emphasis on devising area specific strategy to develop these areas as their requirements differ from other regions.

It also has the potential to meet the requirements of electricity and has high prospects in the tropical regions of the country. He also dwelt upon the government schemes especially, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana as an instrument of change, providing all weather road connectivity to unconnected villages which is certainly having an impact changing the lifestyle of many villagers.

It is aimed at providing the beneficiaries of various government schemes good quality building materials at a fair price and to ensure its regular supply.
