Please find below the letter from Ministry of Rural Development to all States/UTs Principal Secretaries/Secretaries (RD) pertaining to identification of Gram Panchayats for Phase II under SAGY

No. K-11033/19/2016-SAGY-II

Dated: 18th March, 2016


Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) was launched by Hon'ble Prime Minister on 11th October, 2014. As per the Guidelines of the Scheme, three Adarsh Grams are to be developed by March, 2019. While the activities for development of the first set of Adarsh Grams are going on, the timelines of the Scheme require identification of next set of Gram Panchayats for their development under SAGY.

Accordingly, the Hon'ble Minister of Rural Development has requested all the Hon'ble Members of Parliament to identify the name of next Gram Panchayat and to convey the name to the concerned District Collector/ District Magistrate who will in-turn after validation upload it on SAGY website. A copy of the letter from the Minister is enclosed for ready reference.

It has been observed that the details of the Gram Panchayats identified for development in second phase of SAGY have not been uploaded from the District level. You are, therefore, requested to direct the concerned Nodal Officers to facilitate the Members of Parliament in identifying  the next Gram Panchayat as per the Guidelines of the SAGY and to upload the details on SAGY website after validating.

This may be accorded top priority.

Encl: As above.

Yours faithfully,


(Dr. Kushal Pathak)

Director (SAGY)
