                 Visited the Block Panchayat Office and met the dynamic Block officials – elected and government. This shows the interest of the people in the IWMP scheme. Most of the present persons were aware of the different components of the scheme and able to satisfy me about my various queries. The documentation done for the entire process of DPR preparation is excellent and can be replicated elsewhere. I wish them best wishes for EPA and work phase. They should keep up their interest in the IWMP

                 Doing good job, but needs support from District level especially for establishing WDT. I am sure if WDT is established, work will proceed. I am happy to see the well established co-ordination with State Land Use Board. Good luck.

                 I am happy to note that Kerala State Land Use Board and Vamanapuram Block Panchayat have jointly prepared the Detailed Project Report in a systematic manner following the Common Guidelines issued by the Government of India. Massive awareness created as part of DPR preparation has helped in people’s participation and extensive institution building. The methodology adopted and the documentation done are almost impeccable and meticulous and could be safely replicated elsewhere in the State. The appreciation expressed by the Secretary, DoLR, GOI during her field visit in this regard is commendable.

                 It is known that a website is launched by Kerala State Land Use Board in connection with the preparation of DPR processes and procedures in favour of Vamanapuram project under IWMP during 2010-2011. I have got the chance to associate with them in many stages in the preparation of the DPR. I am sure this is a unique attempt in its transparency, community participation, documentation, stakeholder orientation and especially in its technical side of mapping and gathering of other kind of information. This site will enable every citizen of the world to model the effort of KSLUB. I wish all the success.

                 Kerala State Land Use Board has done a good job in connection with the preparation of DPR of Vamanapuram project of IWMP 2010-11. It is a unique attempt. I appreciate Sri. Nizamudeen, Deputy Director, who had done the pivot role in the attempt. It is a model which can be adopted by all agencies who are engaged with the same process. Wishing all success.
