Khammam: District Collector Siddharth Jain has asked the officials to take steps for proper implementation of various schemes introduced by the Central and State Governments for the welfare of various sections of people. Many of these schemes are not being implemented in Agency area in the district, he said. Several people belonging to SCs and STs in Agency area have been leading a miserable life. A report in this regard would be submitted to the State Government seeking aid to them, the Collector said. The Collector participated in the Grievance Cell programme at Revenue Division Office (RDO) at Palvancha in the district on Monday and received petitions from public.

He also directed the District Educational Officer (DEO) to submit a report with regard to appointment of physical science teachers of DSC-2008.
