The Hon'ble Minister of Rural Development has written to the Hon'ble Chief Ministers on Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, highlighting the below points. 

  • More Gram Panchayats may be identified under SAGY for developing as ‘adarsh grams’ to meet the planned number as per Guidelines (Three per MP).

  • It is to be ensured that the Village Development Plans (VDP) prepared democratically by the SAGY Gram Panchayats are completed in a timely manner.

  • For maximising benefits for the Gram Panchayats, the schemes by the State government are to be converged in addition to the Central schemes.

  • State Level Empowered Committee (SLEC) on SAGY headed by the Chief Secretary is to coordinate and ensure seamless convergence of schemes among different State Government Departments as mentioned in the SAGY Guidelines.
