The actual status of villages will be verified upon the completion of the undertaken works, assessing whether the main objectives of the model village plan have been achieved,” said Dr. Saha.

 Dr. Saha also announced that the present government has decided to establish an additional 110 Chief Minister Model Villages in the state.

 He mentioned that all District Magistrates have been instructed to submit the names of two Gram Panchayats/Village Committees to the Panchayat Office in consultation and approval with the MLAs under their respective districts.
