Sampurna Gramin Rozgar Yojana (SGRY) – The Sampurna Gramin Rozgar Yojana (SGRY) was started on 25th September 2001. It was created jointly with the Employment Insurance Scheme and Jawahar Gram Samraddhi Yojana. Its aim is to create permanent community assets in the rural areas as well as to increase the chances of wage employment along with food security. The aim of the program is to give special attention to the parents of children removed from the weaker sections of society, especially women, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and risky occupations. However, under this scheme, priority is given to the families living below the poverty line in employment, but jobs can also be provided to people above the poverty line, where NREGA has started.

The approved annual outlay of this scheme is Rs. 10,000 crores, which includes 50 lakh tonnes of grains. The amount spent in the scheme is borne by the Central and State Governments in the ratio of 75:25. Grains are provided free of cost to the States / UTs. The subsidy rate is to be paid by the Center directly to the Food Corporation of India. But from the FCI godowns to the workplace / public distribution center, the cost of grain transportation and its distribution is the responsibility of the State Governments. Under this scheme, the workers engaged in the work are given minimum 5 kg of grains and minimum 25 percent wages in the form of daily wages.
This program is implemented at three levels of Panchayati Raj Institutions. Each level of the Panchayat is an independent unit in the matter of making and implementing the plan of action. Distribution of resources between district panchayats, intermediate panchayats and village panchayats is done in the ratio of 20:30:50.
The village panchayat can start any work with the resources available and the approval of the Gram Sabha according to its needs. 50 percent of the allocated funds for village panchayats have to be spent on the development of structural facilities in scheduled caste/tribe settlements. 22.5 percent of the share of the resources of the district panchayat and intermediate panchayats should be spent on the personal beneficiary plan applied for SC / ST. There is no provision to engage in any type of work in this scheme with the contractors and neither does it involve any intermediary and intermediary agency. The program is constantly monitored. This program is being evaluated by the centers and state governments through influencing studies by reputed institutions and sponsored organizations.
