Rights & Entitlements

Democracy and development require the deepening of the process of participation of people on the one hand and effectiveness of institutions of governance on the other. Participation of people brings in the sense of belongingness and ownership and the second instills a sense of responsibility and urgency about the achievement of developmental objectives. Institutions like Gram Panchayats play a pivotal role in actualizing the objective and their effectiveness. Strengthening the affirmative action for accountable and transparent governance to provide fair access for rights and entitlements and raising the voices of the vulnerable and marginal population is one of the key focus of CSSS in all its operational area.
