New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address various gram panchayats across the country on Friday and launch an unified e-GramSwaraj portal and a mobile app on National Panchayati Raj Day, the Union Ministry of Panchayati Raj said on Wednesday.

As the country is observing social distancing through the nationwide lockdown to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, the Prime Minister would interact with various participants through video conferencing, the ministry said in a statement.

National Panchayati Raj Day is celebrated on April 24 as it marks a defining moment in the history of decentralisation of power to the grassroots, with the institutionalisation of Panchayati Raj through the Constitution (73rd Amendment) Act, 1992, which came into force on April 24, 1993.

The Prime Minister will launch the unified e-Gram Swaraj portal and a mobile app on this occasion, according to the ministry.

The portal is a new initiative of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj which will provide the gram panchayats with a single interface to prepare and implement their Gram Panchayat Development Plan (GPDP).

The Prime Minister will also launch the Swamitva Scheme on the occasion. (IANS)
