Union minister inaugurates Highway Touch Point in Bareilly

Bareilly, Nov 26 (UNI) Union Minister for Textiles Santosh Gangwar has inaugurated a Village TahTajpur’s Highway Touch Point(HTP), a CSR initiative of IL&FS Transportation Networks Ltd.(ITNL).
HTP initiative in the district was inaugurated by the minister here yesterday in presence of BJP MP from Aonla Lok Sabha seat Dharmendra Kashyap.
According to officials here today, the HTP would showcase the holistic development initiatives that were being implemented at village by Mrida, a social business venture focused on rural the development.
The HTP, located on the highway at the entrance of the village in Bareilly is an income generation and employment initiative that started as a combined effort of the village development committee (VDC), that was put in place by ITNL as part of their CSR initiatives.
The HTP will be a 'touch point’ for ITNL customers using the highway, where they can stop for a while, use clean toilet facilities, and pick up some refreshments/water/packaged foods, along with fresh produce from the village as well as local handicrafts.
The HTP will be managed by the committee from the village. The VDC will enter into an arrangement with zari and other craftsmen/sellers whereby they will get a commission on sales made from the HTP.
Under the arrangement between ITNL and the VDC, the initial setup cost, and running cost for the first two years will largely be borne by ITNL as part of their CSR initiative. During this period, the VDC members will be guided to progressively generate revenue from HTP activities, so that operating costs thereafter can be met from these internal revenues, thus making the entire initiative self-sustainable.
