The Ministry has taken various initiatives for the development and improvement of connectivity, clean and green energy, waste management, power, tourism, infrastructure, etc., in the UTs. This has resulted in a boost to tourism and other economic activities, improvement in civil aviation and other infrastructure, promotion of clean and green energy and “waste to wealth” in the UTs. Initiatives under Aatmanirbhar Bharat have been taken to provide better services to consumers & improvement in operational & financial efficiency in electricity distribution in certain UTs.

Further, a robust monitoring mechanism has been put in place to monitor the implementation of various flagship/development schemes and programmes of Government of India in the UTs.

It is the endeavor of Government of India to make UTs role models of good governance and development, and new drivers of economic prosperity (Aatmanirbhar Arthvyawastha).

It is envisioned to holistically develop the island UTs as global hubs of tourism, raise the standard and quality of living of residents in UTs, achieve saturation of health and educational indicators, enhance health infrastructure to ensure universal access to quality healthcare, promote green energy by leveraging technology,  etc. This is a continuous process.            

This was stated by the Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Nityanand Rai in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
