The PMKSY- PDMC is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme and the funds under the scheme is shared between Central Government and State Government in the ratio of 60:40 for all States except the North Eastern and Himalayan states wherein sharing pattern is 90:10. In case of  Union Territories, funding pattern is 100% grant by the Central Government.
