Prime Minister Narendra Modi released the first installment of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana-Gramin (PMAY-G) under the PM-JANMAN scheme. The scheme is focused on the upliftment of tribal groups and bringing them into the mainstream.
In 1973, the Dhebar Commission delineated Primitive Tribal Groups (PTGs) as a distinct category, encompassing tribal communities characterized by a declining or stagnant population, dependence on pre-agrarian technology, economic underdevelopment, and low literacy rates. These groups are acknowledged as less progressed within the tribal community.
Within the initial two months following the Prime Minister’s launch of the scheme on November 15, the government reported that it had approved projects totaling over ₹4,700 crores across nine Ministries under the PM-JANMAN package. This allocation includes the initial installment for PMAY(G) homes for one lakh beneficiaries.
What is PM-JANMAN Scheme?
PM-JANMAN, endowed with an approximate budget of Rs 24,000 crore, focuses on 11 crucial initiatives across 9 Ministries. Its primary aim is to uplift the socio-economic conditions of Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups (PVTGs).
The program ensures all-encompassing coverage for PVTG households and settlements, providing essential amenities such as secure housing, clean drinking water, sanitation, improved access to education, health, nutrition, electricity, road and telecom connectivity, along with sustainable livelihood opportunities.
The initiative envisions an enhancement in the quality of life and well-being of PVTGs by addressing various forms of discrimination and exclusion. Additionally, it recognizes and values their distinctive and valuable contributions to both national and global development.
Eligibility Criteria for the PM-JANMAN Scheme
The recipients of the PM-JANMAN Scheme are chosen based on housing deprivation criteria outlined in the Socio-Economic and Caste Census (SECC) 2011 data. By utilizing this data, households identified as being without housing and residing in structures with 0, 1, 2 kutcha walls, and kutcha roofs can be specifically identified and prioritized.
A permanent waitlist is compiled, ensuring that states maintain a readily available roster of households earmarked for inclusion in the scheme. This proactive approach enhances implementation planning for a more efficient execution of the program.
