10 districts receive PM’s Award

Several Indian states, which are often considered progressive, have failed to make a mark in Prime Minister’s Award for Excellence in Implementation of Priority Programmes, presented by PM Narendra Modi as a part of 10th Civil Services Day on Thursday. 

 
None of the districts from states such as Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab or Karnataka could figure in the award list a report in babusofindia.com has said. 
 
Out of 10 districts which were presented Awards, two are from Northeast (Nagaon in Assam and West Sikkim district of Sikkim), two are union territories, Chandigarh and Dadra and Nagar Haveli, one from Jammu and Kashmir (Anantnag), and one each from Himachal Pradesh (Hamirpur district), Andhra Pradesh (Ananthapuramu district), West Bengal (North 24 Parganas district) and Chhattisgarh (Balrampur district).
 
These districts were selected work in areas like Swach Bharat Mission (Gramin), Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY), Soil Health Card Scheme and Swach Vidyalaya.
