State Governance has always been evolving so as to provide all government services at the doorstep. In view of this, Vaathilppadi Sevanam is envisaged to provide the same at the doorstep of the deserved through ASHA workers and Sannadhasena Volunteers. It is an iconic scheme to be rolled out through the 100 day programs of the Government of Kerala.

Committees will be formed in each LSGIs to implement this scheme. These committees with the help of ASHA workers, Sannadhasena volunteers and the social justice department, will prepare the list of beneficiaries through house visits. ASHA workers will be the primary point of contact. Any beneficiary will contact the respective ASHA worker and Sannadhasena volunteers will assist in the delivery of services.
This is a unique scheme in the country as the Government Services are being delivered through a network of active volunteers, hence, imparting the concept of volunteerism in State Governance.
Vaathilppadi Sevanam will be implemented as a pilot project by mid - September, 2021 in 50 LSGIs across the State, including 4 Assembly Constituencies, namely, Azhikode, Pattambi, Changanassery and Kattakada. The Government is keen on a Statewide implementation by December this year.
