Decentralisation, Empowerment and Information

Greater and more informed participation of all citizens in decision-making, enforcing accountability, exercising their rights and entitlements; and determining the course of their lives is central to faster growth, inclusion, and sustainability. How can we best promote the capabilities of all Indians, especially the most disadvantaged, to achieve this end?

As we know that Indira Awas Yojana is allotted in the name of female member. But the ownership is practically utilized by male members. So, the cahnge should be started from the family.
33% reservation (in some states it is 50%) for women is mandatory in Panchayats but again it is mis utilized by their husbands. The main problem with them is their capacity. Before giving any room for them we have to capacitate (Capacity Building)them. Second thing we can do that is we make Gender Sensitization among Male.
Think about the above two points.

Sir,

I think today's urban and rural area women are slowly coming out of their 'purdah'.
But to empower them in RIGHT sense is the need of the hour.

For that ;
1) Identify talented , all-rounder women (age 21-28) , by holding All India Exam, or Essay.

2) Train these women on the Programmed Learning basis and frame a syllabus for their course such that they ll become agents for social change.

3) Based on States and Union Territories, send them back to create a multiple-effect whereby they ll conduct awareness about women entrepreneurship, women participation in government. Fix this practical work limit for 1 year period.

4) Evaluate training program and see to it that information on women empowerment has reached in all sectors of India.

A "Jagriti" (Bengali word, means awareness in Hindi 'Jagrok") force consisting of Anganwari workers and other to some educated women in every panchayet should be formed, they should be given an idea of constitutional powers women are having. Then they should be sent to every household in village to brief others about it. Adds in TV and Radio (specially in FM) should also be broadcast to make women aware.

Dear Friends

If we talk of common women in Indian villages, in reality they are the food provider in families. If we consider the country as family, then country's food distribution system (PDS) should be in the hands of women of the nation.

So I feel it would be a good beginning to take their opinion if they wants to take control of PDS at every stage.

Grain distribution should be done to the female member of the Households. I mean there should be only women seller, purchaser, coordinators, managers and so on. If there is any of women could not come to the shop for the collection of her share, their should be a home delivery system for such home. Man over 18 should not be entertained on these shops. I am confident that food will be more secure in the hands of women of this country. it will also give them a step to improve their capabilities instead of showing them baseless dreams to develop their future as pilot or Doctors and engineers on TV.

In addition to the above idea, I would also like to add that, It is observed that Information is always concentrated on the top. So there is a need to bring women on top and that could be possible by sending 2 people from each constituency to the parliament (1 male and 1 female). that would definitely give a chance for women to acquire a first hand information from top and disseminate it in their area of election. This will also empower our democratic system by representing two people for the same constituency.

Friends,

Now in addition to my previous point, I would like to add
if we can do arrangement of electing 2 persons from one parliamentary constituency (1 male and 1 female).

That would not only increase women participation in the decision making. This will reduce the burden of one MP, it will also ensure better representation of India in Parliament. which means 2 MP will represent same population ( almost 1 million).

In addition of that, it will not increase the financial burden on election. it could be done through same ballot paper.

Please think about this idea.

Mother India have every thing but we need to organise it in better way.

Regards,
Pramod

I am surprised to find the 12 focus areas donot contain anything about women with disabilities.
Most of the focus is on urban women while most of our population live in villages.Unless village women come out of the grip of their husbands there can never be a real progress with 33% reservation which in any case is used by the males in the family by using the women as figure head.The planning must think how to empower rural women in our society and give them courage to voice their opinion.

India must be willing to dream big and most importantly be open to ideas based on how other successful nations have done.
The pdfs from the following link shows tiny Abu Dhabi's economic vision for 2030.
Perhaps we can copy some ideas from them.

We at WaveIndia.org (Women Aloud Videoblogging for Empowerment) train women in ICT skills as a means of encouraging marginalised women to publish videos online suggesting solutions from the grassroots. We need to invest in our young women citizens by instilling confidence through skills training, allowing networking with their peers and sharing information so they can help themselves.

Our experience has been that the girls in our program (at least one from every state in India) are an impressive group of sharp thinkers and proactive doers. Encouraging women to become journalists will also aid development in a big way.
