Case Story

We have found that the service providers visit VDC office for some personal works such as birth registration and the service receive from the staff of the VDC.But the service receivers don't show any concern about the VDC budget, source of budget and how the budget expenses and topic of the budget. As such the service providers were oriented about the public expenditure survey and services provides by the VDC office through different training, workshops at VDC levels.They were also oriented about social accountability tools such as the right to information, transparency, accountability along with VDC Secretory. It was found that during the course of the training the participants interacted with the VDC secretory and asked him different question related to social accountability.Mostly the training covered the topic of social accountability and discussion was done on the presentation of expenditures of VDC in the public hearing program. It was developed common understanding that the citizen can raise the issues or question if he/she is not satisfy with the VDC working procedues. It was also shared that the maximum number of service receivers should participate in these activities. Sapkota , VDC secretory " I admit that I have regularly sends income expenditures report to DDC office but not have seriously thought about the citizens concern topic". He added that he wants to make his VDC a good sample VDC that is transparent and follow each tools efficiently and for this he has talked with different stakeholders in different meetings.

Result/constraints/challenges experienced
Even though the budget disclosure is mandatory by law in VDC but most of the VDC secretory have no knowledge about it or they simply ignore the process.ButVDC secretory Krishna BahadurSapkota states that till now no one had raise the issue of publicize the VDC budget and we too didn't pay much attention to this matter. He added that they had a thought that providing the expenditure budget toDDC is enough for them.So, when the issue was shared in different training and meeting with Ward Citizen forum members, Citizen Awareness Center members and VDC secretory jointly, all have agreed on the point that publicize the budget is concern issue for all.After the various meetings and sharing process, Sorahawa VDC secretory has agreed to expose and display of VDC budget expenditure in the notice board. Thus, VDC office has started to display the budget expenditures from 2072 Magh in its Notice Board and the process is continuing thereafter.
