NEW DELHI: Six documentary films produced by the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances (DARPG) on good governance initiatives are to be telecast on National Network of Doordarshan and other television channels.

According to Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanaswamy the number of such films will now go up to 67.

The films include: Tackle the problem of adverse sex ratio - initiative of District Administration of Nawashahr, Punjab; Initiative of Strengthening CSR spending in Raigarh District, ChattisgarhEducational initiatives in Dantewada, Chhattisgarh; Saving Open Space and Urban Lakes (SOUL) and Cultural Rejuvenation of the Twin City of Hubali-Dharwad, Karnataka; Excellence in Rural Management and Development in the Challenging Physical Environment of the Sikkim Himalaya; and Kaushalya Vardhan Kendra (Skill Development) project of the Directorate of Employment & Training, Gujarat.

The films were formally released by DARPG Secretary Sanjay Kothari. The documentary films of three-and-a-half-minute duration were also screened in the release function. These are of different duration and can also be used for classroom study and discussions in the training institutes, and for conferences where senior level officers participate.

Based on stakeholders’ consultation, the films have been made in three durations - 14 minutes, three-and-a-half-minute, and 30 seconds. The 14-minute format is for class room study and discussion in the Central Training Institutes (CTI) and Administrative Training Institutes (ATI); the three-and-a-half-minute film is meant for larger conferences where senior level officers participate, or if the audience is already aware of the broad contours of the schemes or for the meetings with non-officials. These are also meant for telecast on national network of Doordarshan or other television channels. The 30 second version is like a teaser to be used for advertising or to evoke interest in the audience to watch the larger version of the film.

These films are available on YouTube and the department’s website www.darpg@nic.in.
