PMGSY/Bharat Nirman

The PMGSY Programme, which is 100% centrally sponsored, was launched in the country in Dec. 2000 and extended to our state in the same year.

The objective of the PMGSY programme is to provide connectivity by way of an all weather road to the unconnected habitation in rural areas in such a way that habitations of 1000 and + could to be covered in 3 years (upto 2002-2003) and all unconnected habitations having population of 500 and + (and hilly and tribal areas 250 and + by the end of 10th Five year plan. Under Bharat Nirman launched in the country in the year 2005 Government of India has expressed a strong commitment to develop rural areas by increasing the growth potential through strengthening rural infrastructure. This programme has six components including that of rural connectivity.

As per Bharat Nirman goals, all habitations with population of more than 500 and + are to be connected by March 2009. In J&K, there are 1643 such habitations (740 habitations with 1000 plus population and 903 habitations with population 500-999). This would require construction of 989 roads with an aggregate length of 5800 Kms, costing Rs 4000 crores.

  • Total Habitations : 9933
  • Habitations covered before inception of PMGSY : 5770
  • Habitations to be covered under PMGSY : 4163
  • Habitations to be covered under Phase I to VII : 2010
  • Habitation covered : 1115
  • Habitations yet to be covered : 895
The 1st and 2nd phase is being implemented by the Rural Dev. Deptt. The implementation of this Programme from Phase III onwards was entrusted to the state PWD in June 2003 and gradually a separate implementation structure has been created for PMGSY works in J&K.

For smooth functioning and proper implementation of the programme to achieve the objectives, a separate organization was created in the year 2006 headed by Chief Engineer and subsequently with passage of time as the volume of the work has increased. Further another post of Chief Engineer has been created in the organization. Presently there are 6 Circles headed by Superintending Engineer and 29 PIUs headed by Executive Engineer.

Under Phase I and II, being implemented by the State Rural Development Department, 102 schemes stand sanctioned at an estimated cost of Rs. 81.62 crores out of which 89 schemes stand completed so far.

Under Phase III, IV, V, VI, VII being implemented by the state PWD, 1277 schemes stand sanctioned at an estimated cost of Rs. 3621.57 crores out of which 433 schemes stand completed and a good number of schemes are at final stage of completion.
