Decentralized & Inclusive decision making process

Scria Sangathan [women group] members are closely involved in policy & executive decisions through a 3 tier federating structure at village, block & district level. Sangathan [group] is the basic village level unit headed by an Adhyaksha [leader]. All Sangathan members are members of Aam Sabha [general body] that meets once a year on October 17, World Poverty Day, which is celebrated as Samridhi divas [Prosperity Day]. The cluster/ block level federating body is called Sangh and consists of all the Sangathan Adhyakshas’. Sangh members meet once in two months and are responsible for preparing cluster level fund request & its subsequent disbursement. At area level the federating body is called Nirnaayak Samiti [governing body] and is represented by 1/3 members from every Sangh elected during Aam Sabha. The Samiti meets once in 3 months and is responsible for preparing area level fund request and its subsequent disbursement. All the decisions regarding the management of program, interest rate - loan types - etc., are taken by the Samitis. The decisions taken by the Samitis are ratified in the program’s yearly general body meeting, Aam Sabha. At district level the three area federating bodies are for Rewari – Alwar; Mohindergarh; & Churu - Bikaner.
