The volunteers, through whom the services of the government will be routed, will be paid Rs 5,000 honorarium. According to the plans of Andhra Pradesh government, each village volunteer will have the responsibility of 50 families in a village.
"Approximately 1,85,525 people have completed the process of recruitment for a total of 1,92,848 village volunteers in Andhra Pradesh," a Tweed shared by Gopal krishna Dwivedi, Principal Secretary (Panchayat Raj and Rural Development) of Andhra Pradesh government said.
A statement from Peddi Reddy Ramachandra Reddy, minister for Panchayati Raj and Rural development, said the salaries for these village/ward volunteers will be credited in their bank accounts.
"All services would be routed through volunteers and the secretariat staff in a decentralised set-up. A centralised call centre would be set up to receive complaints and grievances from the residents for remedial measures," a report said earlier.
The village volunteers will report to the respective village secretaries in each village.
