Mr. Srinivas Kesineni, the Member of Parliament (MP) from Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, in partnership with the Tata Trusts undertook a community mapping and micro-planning program for 264 villages. The program covered Vijayawada’s four Assembly constituencies — Jaggaiahpet, Mylavaram, Nandigama, and Tiruvur.

The goal — transform every one of the 264 villages into a model village by creating and carrying out micro-targeted development plans.

The Centre for People’s Forestry was the implementation partner for this deployment, mobilizing 1,200 volunteers to kickstart data collection for this project. SocialCops was the data intelligence partner, leveraging our platform to collect data from over a million people, automatically check incoming data in real time, clean and analyze all the data, and create a visual centralized planning dashboard that district administrators and development organizations alike used to target and plan their budgets, policies, and initiatives more effectively.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi appreciated the efforts of Vijayawada MP Kesineni Srinivas for initiating a first of its kind “model village” project.
