Dr Mehta enjoined upon them to create a checklist of all the amenities like presence of school, health center, metaled road, quality power supply, street lights and other facilities. He further directed review of functioning of rural institutions like Panchayats, Patwars and Anganwadi Centers in these villages so that their performance is up to the mark.
