Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) was launched at the fag end of 2000-01. The primary objective of this Yojana is to provide connectivity, by way of all-weather road (with necessary culverts and cross drainage structures which is operable throughout the year), to the unconnected habitations in the rural areas, in such a way that habitations with a population of 1000 persons and above are covered in 3 years (2000-03) and all unconnected habitations with a population of 500 persons and above by the end of 10th Plan period (2007). In respect of hill areas, the objective would be to connect habitations with a population of 250 persons and above. The PMGSY will permit the upgradation of the existing roads in those districts where all the habitations of the above population size have been provided all weather road connectivity. However, the spirit and objective is to provide good all weather road connectivity to the unconnected habitations and as such it is required to be ensured that the provision of new connectivity is given precedence in keeping with the objectives of the programme.
The PMGSY envisages only single road connectivity to be provided. If a habitation is already connected to another connected habitations by way of all weather roads, then no further work can be taken up under the PMGSY at that habitation.
