MESSAGE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

As you know, Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) was launched by the Hon’ble Prime Minister on 11th October, 2014.
SAGY has to be implemented through convergence of Central sector, Centrally sponsored and State schemes. In line with
the SAGY guidelines, we have to ensure convergence amongst different relevant schemes in such a manner that this
programme emerges as an example of innovations in Convergence.
My Ministry has taken the lead to undertake a detailed mapping exercise on the Central sector, Centrally sponsored and
State schemes and has prepared a compilation – ‘SAMANVAY’.
I am sure, this compilation will act as an important resource material for MPs, PRI members and other development practitioners to understand
the various ongoing development schemes and programmes at the Gram Panchayat level.
With information readily available on Government schemes, I am sure that my colleagues will lead and add value to the various
developmental initiatives in their respective constituencies. It will be particularly useful for better coordination, synergy and
convergence across all Government line departments, PRls, civil society actors and Ministers.
I wish all success to my collegues in their endeavour towards development of model villages.

A NOTE
Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) Guidelines speak of the need to identify the resource envelope.
The resources can be of various types ranging from funds available under different Central sector, Centrally
sponsored and State schemes, purely untied resources of the Gram Panchayats like its own revenue, Central
and State Finance Commission grants, etc., resources which can be mobilised locally in cash, kind and labour
and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds. It is desirable that these various categories of resources are
used in convergent and integrated manner to generate maximum synergy. This mapping of resources has
to be done carefully and intelligently at the district level in order to achieve the expected outcome as laid
down in the Village Development Plan (VDP).

The SAGY Division of the Ministry of Rural Development has carried out a mapping exercise of all
relevant Central sector, Centrally sponsored and State schemes in line with SAGY Guidelines. The entire
exercise was carried out with the help of Prime Minister’s Rural Development Fellows (PMRDFs) from
different States and further vetted by the State Nodal Officers of respective States. This bringing in together
of all relevant schemes as far as possible, is intended to ease the efforts of various implementers of the
programme towards identifying and finalising the resource envelope. The Ministry acknowledges the
support received from the SAGY Division, PMRDFs and States in this regard.
