It was the morning of 16th February 2021, when Sameer Kochhar, Chairman, SKOCH Group was received by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy in his office in Vijayawada. The Chief Minister was being conferred the SKOCH Chief Minister of the Year Award based on a year-long assessment of project-level outcomes. While conferring the award Kochhar had said, “The state has taken several revolutionary measures benefiting the citizens to make governance more efficient and transparent.”

He further reminded the Chief Minister, his conversation with YSR Reddy, the then Chief Minister of unified Andhra Pradesh, when he had said that his priorities and focus are the upliftment of rural areas and reducing the hiatus between rural and the urban. Post division, Andhra Pradesh has inherited more rural than urban and how Jagan Mohan Reddy’s, walking in the footsteps of his father, is making a marked difference, added Kochhar.

Schemes like the YSR Rythu Bharosa Kendralu (RBK), YSR Cheyutha, Disha and Abhay have all stood out as interesting model for village-level procurement, economic empowerment of middle-aged women and enhancing women’s safety and security performed at the outcome-based level.

Come 2022, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has once again emerged as the Chief Minister of the Year for 2021. The state has ranked #1 in the SKOCH State of Governance 2021 report card. It maintains its position in the top spot for a second year in a row.
