Titled the Green Kerala Express, this daily 30 minute interactive show involving all 999 Grama Panchayaths, 57 Municipalities and 5 corporations will focus on sustainable development models developed by the local self-governments. This show will be unique in the focus on the collective effort of the people in harnessing the talent of the community at the grass root level. The panchayats will be evaluated based on their performance in sectors like water and land management, sanitation, environment, health, energy, social security, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS), women empowerment, education, agriculture, food security etc. This competition will give an opportunity for local self Governments to map their resources and also to show case the models that they have developed which can be emulated by other panchayaths.

The invitation to join the competition is open to all panchayaths and they can apply with a detailed profoma and also a 8-10 minute video on their achievements, A technical jury will evaluate their work by assigning marks based on profoma and video and will shortlist 150 panchayaths for the first round. Representatives from the selected panchayats will be invited to present their models in front of the jury and audience. A two-member anchor team will be leading the show. There will be interactive sessions, presentation of counter videos from Panchayaths and questions form jury and audience. One Panchayat will be short listed form each district, along with Municipalities and Corporations. In the final round the show will go into details of activities in various developmental sectors and panchayaths will be evaluated and graded according. One panchayat, One Municipality and One Corporation will be selected as final winners.
