Narmada Transformation Corps (NTC)

Narmada Transformation Corps (NTC)

The Narmada Transformation Corps was created for effective outreach and awareness campaign of schemes at village and block levels. An initiative of Narmada District Collectorate, the tagline ‘Hajavana Narmada, Lekharya Narmada’ means ‘Narmada Be Healthy, Narmada Be Literate’.

Narmada is a tribal area and the challenge before the administration was to connect the remotest talukas. A single window platform was started called NTC to make the young people of district aware of the programmes of government. All the youth registered from five taluks of the district. The committees were formed and meetings were convened. Communication is a major hurdle when it comes to development. With the help of NTC, information was disseminated to the young people regarding various schemes of the government. Youth energy was used in a constructive way and they were also engaged in various dialogues.

Government to Youth (G2Y) Communication was enabled to gain confidence of the youth community especially the educated who had become disillusioned with the way government is working. It is aimed at convergence of youth energy and facilitating their meaningful engagement in development. Poshan Vainin, Sangini Project (Health involvement of NTC Vols), Shiksha Santi Project (Education sector), Skill development by hospitality training to local youth for promoting eco-tourism; apprentice mela for job exposure; Bank Mitras for coverage of shadow area panchayats for financial inclusion are the various interventions taken in this regard. The NTC were used to communicate with the people in local dialect.

Its new direction is of a NTC Youth Audit instead of social audit. Rather than a medium of Dialogue, District Administration plans to leverage NTC as a platform for Youth Audit. A Rating system and Feedback mechanism is being devised to engage NTC youth more actively.
