The programme, the Peoples EmpowermentEnabling Transparency and Accountability (PEETHA), also aims at improving transparency in the distribution of individual and social benefits.
"I am pleased to announce PEETHA. This initiative will create awareness about various schemes of the government and improve transparency," Patnaik said.
He said the PEETHA is a sub-scheme of the state government's flagship Ama Gaon Ama Bikas yojana.
As part of the initiative, camps will be organised at gram panchayat level from 15th to 20th of each month, beginning from December 2018.
Every month the best panchayat in each Block will be given Rs 5 lakh for organising PEETHA. Upon completion of the camps, the best panchayats in each district will be awarded at the district Level, Patnaik said.
Similarly, panchayats, blocks and best districts will be awarded with special funds at the state level, he said.
