All these helped it score 90% in the survey. These are provisional rankings of 2,26,275 gram panchayats which have uploaded the data.
Nandagad and Kulagod in Belagavi district figure among the top 10. Hiralal S Janaga, executive officer, Gadag taluk panchayat, said: “Last year, Hulkoti GP was ranked 5th. The survey is conducted on 141 parameters set by the ministry. It was conducted in all 37 GPs in Gadag taluk from October to December 2020″.
