Gangatharan assumed charge of the highest administrative post of the district on March 10. Fifteen days after taking charge, he interacted with media persons.
On the occasion, he gave full information about the vaccination programme and PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme which are important for the state government as well. “We have planned to meet the criteria laid down by the state government for vaccination in the district. People are being encouraged from time to time for vaccination,” he said and exuded confidence that the district will be free from restrictions by meeting the vaccination criteria.
For the effective implementation of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi scheme, 35,000 beneficiaries will be given benefits with the coordination of banks, revenue and agriculture departments besides gram panchayat, gram sevaks, talathis, agricultural assistants, block development officers and tehsildars.
