1 Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana Rural Roads Programme Delivery of Rural Services and Infrastructure Critical to the Millennium Development Goals 18 th June 2004
3 National Rural Road Development Committee Report- Findings India has about 5.89 lakh villages of various population sizes, inhabited by about 75 % of its population. Water tankers cannot reach several thousands drought prone villages leading to migration of rural population in total despair. A large number of cattle die in veterinary epidemics especially during the rainy season because timely help cannot reach them. Daily 300 pregnant women die, as they cannot reach the health centre in time from their villages. The public distribution system fails to penetrate to thousands of villages leading to malnutrition and infant morality. Perishable agricultural crops cannot reach the market in time leading to heavy loss to the farmers. Lakhs of rural children cannot reach the schools during rainy season.
4 Rural Connectivity - an Effective Poverty Reduction Strategy Increase in agricultural production improvement in cropping pattern Better prices for the agricultural produce Reduction in transport costs Cheaper and more assured availability of essential items Creation of new employment in off-farm sector Better climate for setting up cottage and Agro-Industries Increase in production of dairy products Better medical care Higher attendance in schools/colleges Better access to public services like Post Offices, Banks, Administrative offices Increased penetration of Development Programmes Quick response to calamities (epidemics, droughts, floods, fire, crime etc) Access to better quality consumer items and durables Social ImpactsEconomic benefits
6 Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana Programme launched on 25th Dec. 2000 The Objectives: All 500+ Unconnected Habitations to be connected by 2007 For Hill, NE States, Desert and Tribal Areas 250+ unconnected habitations also to be connected. All weather roads are to be constructed Length of Roads to be Constructed : 3,69,000 Km Eligible Habitations to be covered : 1.70 lakh

14 Unconnected Habitation An Unconnected Habitation is one with a population of designated size located at a distance of at least 500 meters or more (1.5 km of path distance in case of Hills) from an All- weather road or a connected Habitation. *
15 Connectivity The Unconnected Habitations are to be connected to nearby Habitations already connected by an All-weather road or to another existing All-weather road so that services (educational, health, marketing facilities etc.), which are not available in the unconnected Habitation, become available to the residents. *
16 Habitation The unit for this Programme is a Habitation. A Habitation is a cluster of population, living in an area, the location of which does not change over time. (Desam, Dhanis, Tolas, Majras, hamlets etc. are commonly used terminology to describe the Habitations.) A Revenue village / Gram Panchayat may comprise of one or several Habitations. *
17 District Rural Road Plan and Core Network The District Rural Roads Plan indicates the existing road network system in the District and identifies the proposed roads for providing connectivity to Unconnected Habitations, in an economic and efficient manner The Core Network identifies the roads required to assure each eligible Habitation with a Basic Access to essential social and economic services. *
