Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)
The purpose of this Development Role Manual for Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) is to create an enabling mechanism for improved implementation of the Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) at the cutting edge, leading to enhanced outcomes in nature and extent. Accordingly, it would act as a guide for implementation by the District Collector and key District-level functionaries, enable quick learning, implementation modalities, roles and responsibilities of the various functionaries as well as stakeholders etc.
This Manual is prepared with inputs from a combination of sources, including interaction with the Ministry of Rural Development (MRD), Government of India (GoI), review of extant scheme guidelines and circulars issued by MRD from time to time and recently updated till January, 2015 and discussions with the key personnel involved in implementation of the Scheme.
For greater direction, the guidelines cited must be referred to along with the PMGSY website (http://www.pmgsy.nic.in/) for guidance and clarification on implementation from time to time.
The primary objective of the PMGSY is to provide connectivity by way of an all-weather road (with necessary culverts and cross-drainage structures which is operable throughout the year) to the eligible unconnected habitations in the rural areas with a population of 500 persons and above (2001 census) in plain areas. In respect of special category States (Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand), the Desert Areas (as identified in the Desert Development Programme), the Tribal Areas (Schedule V of the Constitution), and selected Tribal and Backward Areas (as identified by the Ministry of Home Affairs and Planning Commission), the objective would be to connect eligible unconnected habitations with a population of 250 persons and above (2001 census). For most intensive IAP (Integrated Action Plan) blocks (as identified by the Ministry of Home Affairs), the unconnected habitations with population of 100 and above (2001 census) are eligible to be covered under the scheme.
The PMGSY will permit the upgradation (to prescribed standards) of the existing roads in those districts where all the eligible habitations of the designated population size (detailed above) have been provided all-weather road connectivity. However, it must be noted that upgradation is not central to the programme. In upgradation works, priority should be given to Through Routes of the Rural Core Network, which carry more traffic.
