About Pradhan Mantri Adi Adarsh Gram Yojana

  • By providing Special Central Assistance as an addition to the State Tribal Sub-Plan, it supports the efforts of State Governments to promote the welfare of Tribal People (TSP).
  • It attempts to address funding gaps and provide essential infrastructure in communities with sizable tribal populations by combining funds from other Central Scheduled Tribe Component programmes.
  • The SCA to TSS Scheme was further revised to capture the Gaps in crucial socio-economic “Monitorable Indicators” as part of several sectors/domains, in order to assure the complete development of the chosen villages, ensuring that they can in fact become “Adarsh Grams.”
    • These domains include water and sanitation, education, health and nutrition, agricultural best practices etc. amongst others.
  • Based on a need assessment process, needs or gaps with regard to “Monitorable Indicators” are identified.
  • The information gathered throughout the Need Assessment process served as the foundation for the “Village Development Plan” (VDP).
  • PMAGY offers a framework for other Schemes to be implemented convergently with the goal of achieving saturation in the various domains.


  • Creating a village development plan based on potential, goals, and necessities.
  • Increasing the scope of state and central government assistance programmes for individuals and families.
