Involve the gram sabha and other institutions like PTA,vigilance committee, mahila mandals and all concerned persons of the village in the enforcement of SC orders. In case of any violation of the Sc order starts at local level. If it does not work try to approach the concerned officers.

The public hearing is one of the good option to draw attention of the public as well as the government. If no action was taken on your complaint move to the advisor of the SC. Redressel mechanism
