1. What is Bhagidari scheme ?
The Government of Delhi has launched a unique scheme named Bhagidari which aims at involving people’s participation in governance. The basic idea is to establish a dialogue between the stakeholders i.e. the Government Departments and citizens groups like Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) and Market and Traders Associations (MTAs) in order to work out solutions to common civic problems.
2. How it works ?
This scheme has already achieved success in many areas. With a view to expand the participation of the Resident Welfare Associations, Government had also organized workshops in all Revenue Districts. In the workshop the local officials of Delhi Vidyut Board, Delhi Jal Board, Delhi Police, Delhi Development Authority and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi sit with the representatives of the Resident Welfare Associations and deliberate upon local issues so as to find acceptable solutions to common problems facing the residents. This has facilitated a process of dialogue and discovery of joint solutions between the Resident Welfare Associations, Market Traders Associations, Civic agencies and public utility services.
