Report on Implementation of SGSY

 

            The  Minister of State for for Rural Development Shri Pradeep Jain “Aditya today informed the Rajya  Sabha that            the total allocation and expenditure for Swaranjayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) for the years 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 is at Annexure.

 

            Impact Assessment & Evaluation Studies are one of the major monitoring mechanisms under SGSY. Several evaluation studies, particularly those conducted by National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD), Hyderabad, Bankers Institute of Rural Development (BIRD), Lucknow, Centre for Management Development, Thiruvananthapuram etc. and reports of the Steering Committee constituted by the Planning Commission for the 11th Plan have shown that the SGSY has been relatively successful in alleviating rural poverty wherever systematic mobilization of the poor into SHGs, their capacity building and skill development was taken up in a process-intensive manner. In other places the impact has not been so significant though the SHG based model of poverty reduction has been validated everywhere.  The studies have pointed to some shortcomings in the programme designed and implementation and also suggested wage of overcoming them through restructuring of SGSY. 

            The Minister was replying to a written question in the Rajya Sabha today.
