RGGVY social audit journey in images

Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana is a flagship programme of the Government of India which began in April 2005 and was aimed to accelerate the pace of rural electrification in the country. To check the ground reality of the same, Greenpeace along with its partner organisations conducted social audits in Azamgarh district in Uttar Pradesh, Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh and Madhubani and Saran districts in Bihar. Here's the story of the journey in images.

The social audit teams went from door to door in select villages of the districts asking residents about the status of the scheme in their village. The idea was to find out if they have got the connection and whether electricity is being provided under the scheme.
