Chand says the framework accelerates much-needed repair work, empowering local tradesmen and women to address maintenance issues without prolonged delays.

Under this framework, engagement with village communities and tradespeople will be facilitated through established youth groups, co-operatives or religious or social organizations.

Chand adds that by partnering with these groups, they aim to streamline the administration, coordination and supervision of repair and renovation tasks.
