Model Villages under PMRP

In view of the fact that three-fourth of our population is residing in rural area, there is a big rural-urban divide and rural areas continue to be characterized by poverty, low level of productivity and lack of basic minimum services resulting in unabated migration of population towards urban areas.

In backdrop of this, the government recently adopted the concept of developing “Model Villages” for over all development of the rural areas. The idea is not only to provide basic services in rural areas to check migration of population and improve quality of life to demonstrate the use of latest technology and ensure integrated development of these areas.

Under the PM’s Reconstruction Plan 57 villages, one in each block recommended by the elected representatives have been approved for development as “Model Villages” by the Rural Development Department. The Project Reports/Action Plans were prepared in consultation with gram panchayats. The main thrust has been given on the following areas:-

  • Improvement in overall sanitation of the village including lane/drains.

  • Use of Solar Technology for Street Lights.

  • Creation of essential facilities like CFCs, Playground and Recreation Parks.

  • Establishment of Rural Informatics Centers.

  • Small shopping Line/Lines for Local Educated Youths.

Each Model village is being developed at the approved cost of Rs. 120.00 lacs.. The works are in full swing in the model villages. 46 CFC/CIC buildings are at finishing stage. Similarly 69 shops have been completed where as 83 shops are at finishing stage. 897 Lanes/Drains have already been completed whereas 474 Lanes/Drains are in Progress.

57 villages, one in each block, are being developed as Model Villages under PM`s Re-construction Plan. The approved cost of the project is Rs.6840 Lacs ( @Rs.120.00 Lacs. per Model Village ). Since the inception of the scheme Rs.6659.70 stands incurred ending March 2010. Against an availability of 372.00 Lacs for the year 2009-10 193.55 lacs utilized ending March 2010. Many of Model Villages are already inaugurated,  remaining maximum Model Villages have been completed and some near completion.
