Dated: 25th November, 2016

Madam/ Sir,

                As you know, Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana (SAGY) was launched on 11th October, 2014 with the objective of creating model Gram Panchayats in different parts of the country. The Hon'ble Members of Parliament (MP) are leading and guiding the initiative. The MPs have adopted 703 Gram Panchayats (GP) under the Phase-I of the scheme and are taking concrete steps towards the holistic development of these GPs. The implementation of SAGY in the Phase-I GPs have been enlightening and the learnings so far have motivated the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) to issue and advisory to the States /UTs towards the better implementation of SAGY in Phase-II. The same is attached along with this letter and I hope this will be helpful for the States/ UTs in implementing SAGY. As always, any issues, suggestions or clarification can be communicated to the Ministry of Rural Development through email

                Thanking you,

Yours Sincerely,


Director (SAGY)
