Roads:Rural Connectivity Schemes

Rural connectivity is one of the key factors for the socio-economic development of the State.  One of the major activities of the Rural Development Department is construction and improvement of rural roads.  The Department has been entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining 27,901 km. of rural roads. Besides, there are 784 major bridges under this Department.

Major Schemes/programmes under implementation for rural connectivity are:

·         PradhanMantri Gram SadakYojana (PMGSY)

·         Rural Infrastructure Development Fund (RIDF) :The Government of India in the Budget of 1995-1996 announced the scheme for setting up of Rural Infrastructure

                                                                                                     Development Fund (RIDF) to be made operational by the NABARD for financing of the ongoing as well as the new

                                                                                                     infrastructure projects in rural areas for upliftment of rural economy and eradication of poverty.

·         BijuSetuYojana (BSY) :                                                Biju Setu Yojana was launched on 9th Oct. 2011 for construction of new bridges on RD roads and important P.S. roads to

                                                                                                     provide all-weather connectivity to the rural areas of the State. In addition to above, the Programme will also cover

                                                                                                     construction of bridges on strategic important Panchayat Samitee roads belonging to P.R. Department.  The BSY as such has

                                                                                                     been formulated to provide an effective all-weather road network across the length and breadth of the state, so as to

                                                                                                     effectively meet the transportation needs of every sector, cost effectively.

·         Constituency-wise Allotment (CWA)                     :The Constituency-wise allocation was conceptualized to place Rs.20.00 lakhs at the disposal of each constituency, so that

                                                                                                     critical road projects could be taken up in rural areas in consultation with the local representatives (Hon’bleMLAs) to address                                                                                                      the immediate needs of the locality.

·         Finance Commission Award Work (Roads & Buildings)   The Central Government supplements the State, with additional fund to maintain the assets created under different

                                                                                                     schemes through Finance Commission Grant.

·         Special Repair (Roads & Buildings)                       There are approximately 28,159. KMs of rural roads under Rural Development Department. State Government provides

                                                                                                     budgetary support each year for maintenance and upkeep of these roads and CD works.
