Press Trust of India  |  Puducherry 

Lt Governor Kiran Bedi today announced that her office here, Raj Nivas, will soon adopt a village in for the purpose of achieving twin objectives of making it "a digitaland swachch village."

Talking to reporters on the sidelines of NCC day celebrations here, Bedi said she will follow Prime Minister Modi's appeal (on Mann Ki Baat) to achieve the goal of cashless society, in Puducherry.



"Raj Nivas has now decided to adopt a village in and all the NCC volunteers in the Union Territory would be associated with the programme as the purpose would be to ensure the village becomes clean, cashless and digital," she said adding it was for the NCC Headquarters to select the village for the scheme.

Bedi further said, "We will involve banks who would work with us in the village adoption scheme, to make credit or debit cards available to men, women and the youth in the village who never had this facility."

She pointed out that the proposal for adoption of a village by Raj Nivas was on the same lines as the scheme implemented to enable MPs to adopt villages in their respective constituencies.
