This was disclosed by Subdivision Officer Dehra Rakesh Sharma while addressing a press conference held here today. He said that basic purpose of the PIC also known as “Bharat Nirman Jan Suchana Abhiyan” is to make the common men especially in the rural areas aware about various Bharat Nirman flagship programmes of the central government. He also added that the this platform at the same time is also useful for providing information about the developmental schemes and programmes being run by state government so as to give them their benefits.
Stressing on the need to make the PIC more practical to give benefits of these schemes, he said that such a single platform is very handy for the administration to provide information and to get feedback from the people about progress and implementation of the schemes and programmes of the governments.

Currently there are about 2077 PRIs representatives in the Kangra districts.
