Mumbai: Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday said the state government plans to transform 1,000 villages with help from the corporate sector, and the civil society over the next few years.

He said corporate sector is already working with the government through the CSR and “we thought of using their resources, knowledge, technology and planning and implementation skills”.

He said corporate sector expertise would be used to set up an institutional mechanism to amalgamate work done by different companies in different areas to transform 1000 villages in collaboration with the state government.

He was addressing media here after his meeting with industrialists Ratan Tata, Anand Mahindra and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
