1) Construction of CC Road: - Development of rural roads brings multiple socio-economic benefits to the rural areas which form a strong base of the National economy and it is a powerful instrument for socio-economic transformation of the villages. Awareness of these benefits and their evaluation plays a pivotal role for providing all weather rural roads. The quickly visible benefits are increased mobility, increase productivity, saving in cost of transformation of man and material and speedier flow of commodities, beside changes in the life style.
Due to inaccessible areas the people of Jalpaiguri lived in isolation. The main causality of poor road connectivity is girl’s education. It leads to high dropout, child marriage, early pregnancy, anaemia, mal-nourished child etc. Because of construction of roads not only the village students find it easier to go their place of education, but it also attracts good and efficient teaching staff to these areas.
To address these issues the District Administration decided to construct all weather cement concrete roads. The roads so constructed are of mainly 3mt width. This enables plying of small vehicles as also ambulance. The students are able to cycle their way to school which reduces travel time as also dropout. Distribution of cycle to all students by the State Govt. under “SABUJ SATHI” programme has also helped in this.
