Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Yojana

 

  The Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Yojana is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme being implemented by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj for the non-BRGF districts.  The scheme focuses primarily on providing financial assistance to the States/UTs for Training & Capacity Building of elected representatives (ERs) and functionaries of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) so that they can perform the functions devolved upon them and the schemes entrusted to them effectively, besides a small component for infrastructure development.  Under the Infrastructure Development component, assistance is provided for Satellite based training infrastructure for Distance Learning for the ERs and Functionaries of the PRIs and, in respect of the Hilly States and States in the North Eastern Region, for capital expenditure on establishment of Panchayat Resource Centres/ Panchayat Bhawans at Block/Gram Panchayat levels. 

 

  With the Panchayats at the three tiers being called upon to undertake more and more responsibilities for service delivery and working as the local self government, after the passing of the 73rd Amendment Act, there is increasing need for Capacity Building and Training (CB&T) of elected representatives and functionaries of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs).  As the CB&T activities are undertaken by the State/UT administrations, the objective of the scheme is to assist States/UTs in carrying out actual training activities as well as to set up Panchayat Ghars at Gram Panchayat level and Training/Resource centres at Regional/Block level.

 

   The scheme has two components of Training & Capacity Building and Infrastructure Development.  Under the component of Training & Capacity Building, financial assistance is provided to the States/UTs for Training  of elected representatives (ERs) and functionaries of Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs as well as for setting up of Satellite/SWAN based training infrastructure for Distance Learning for the ERs and Functionaries of the PRIs.  Under the component of Infrastructure Development, assistance is provided for establishment of Panchayat Resource Centres/ Panchayat Bhawans at Block/Gram Panchayat levels. 

 

   The scheme is demand driven in nature and provides for funding on 75:25 sharing basis between the Central and State Governments concerned. Assistance under the Training component is also given to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), where the central assistance is 100% and such proposals are required to be forwarded with the recommendations of the State Government concerned.

 

                    The training content encompasses a range of issues, including improving the process of planning, budgeting and expenditure management, information systems, participatory and consultative decision making, improving local taxation and in particular delivery of public services to the poor.

 

The scheme of RGSY supports the National Capability Building Framework of the Ministry for comprehensive Capacity Building & Training of the Elected Representatives & Functionaries of Panchayati Raj Institutions. The NCBF is available at as also at .  It provides for first training to all ERs of PRIs within 6 months of elections and refresher/sectorally focused trainings thereafter every year. 

 

           The standard norms for expenditure on training are as follows:

(#)    While the allocation for Training and Capacity Building was reduced to Rs. 24.95 crore, the entire allocation for NE region of Rs. 7.50 crore was re-appropriated for spending under RGSY.

 

 New initiatives taken under the scheme :

 

In order to review the progress under the scheme and take suitable and timely remedial measures, a Web based Monthly Progress Reporting System has been introduced. 

 

For augmenting the infrastructure of N.E. & Hilly States, the financial assistance was provided towards construction of training institutions and Panchayat Resource Centres.

 

The State Institute of Rural Developments (SIRDs) are unable to provide qualitative training in set-timeframe to all Elected Representatives of PRIs.  For overcoming this challenge, this Ministry has been exploring the option of public private partnership model that may fall beyond the traditional approaches but has the potential to provide some lead to ensure 100% training coverage and quality assurance in a time bound manner. Towards this larger goal, MoPR had organized a PRI-CB&T Business Meet with States and Private organizations. As a follow up, States are exploring/utilizing the services of NGOs/other organizations in CB&T effort. 

 

Future Plans for strengthening  of scheme

 

Emphasis will be given to conduct the training programmes through Distance Learning Facilities for maximum coverage of participants. Several States are already under the process of setting up SATCOM infrastructure.

 

Efforts would be made to get enhanced allocation for the Scheme and include/converge with other Schemes of MoPR/other Ministries.
