Hanamkonda: Two villages in each mandal would be developed as agriculture models under Agricultural Technology Management Agency (ATMA) scheme, Warangal Urban District Collector Prashanth Jeevan Patil said. Speaking at a meeting at the Collectorate here on Friday, he said that government initiatives related to agriculture and its ancillary units would be implemented in the model villages.

"All the developmental activities under ATMA scheme would be implemented in Thatikayala village under Dharmasagar mandal, chosen by Rajya Sabha member Banda Prakash for the Central Government flagship programme - Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY)," the Collector said.
