The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) was launched on December 25, 2000, with the objective of providing all-weather road connectivity to eligible unconnected habitations in rural areas. The scheme is implemented by the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India.
Since its inception, PMGSY has been successful in connecting more than 1.52 lakh unconnected habitations with a population of 500 persons and above. In addition to improving the connectivity of rural areas, the scheme has also generated employment opportunities in the construction sector and facilitated the movement of goods and services.
The scheme has been widely appreciated for its impact on rural development and has received praise from various quarters. The Prime Minister’s happiness on the progress of the scheme in Bilaspur is a testament to the positive impact that PMGSY has had on the lives of rural people across the country.
