In Orissa there is no reason why people in a district should come to Bhubaneswar to get their problems solved. This negates the very notion of self- governance. In order to bring governance closer to people, ever y district will have a District Government with all necessary powers. All local governments will be empowered with funds, functions and functionaries. Orissa is a state of villages, 80% of the population are staying in rural village. Observing the social and economic states of rural people, one can easily ﬁnd out the acute poverty of the village. Many welfare schemes and programmes has introduced by Govt. for poverty eradication of the rural areas, but the people are not yet to get all sorts of the beneﬁts provided by the government. Because people staying in villages don't know about the policies and guideline of Govt. scheme meant for their welfare. For which the beneﬁciary's are not getting the welfare services and only the elite groups who are involved in such welfare scheme are always beneﬁted. The only reason for this is lack of proper information. So LNSP of Jajpur has been involving general people in its institutional revolution i.e. Power to people by ensuring a Citizen centered governance process that will establish the link between general population and the government. So to spread information on Govt. welfare scheme and programmes among the people of Jajpur district, intensive publicity was made through awareness.

The year 2019 ‒ 2020 was an eventful year for Laxmi Narayan Seva Pratisthan in which it undertook many meaningful programmes for the target group. In spite of many achievements we faced certain diﬃculties. The biggest hurdle for attaining the long-term goals for the organization was lack of resources. There was absolutely no external assistance except form some individuals and local organizations. So all the envisaged activities for the year could not be pursued in the right earnest. Thus it was decided that the organization will seek ﬁnancial assistance from various government and nongovernmental sources to implement al the programmes eﬀectively. In the next ﬁnancial year we would like to put more emphasis on Skill Development Training Programme, Programmes for the Senior Citizens, Women Empowerment and Agricultural Development etc.
