The Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Vikas Yojana (MMGSVY) has announced its own rural road connectivity programme in the name of chief minister. The scheme would connect all those places where the PMGSY had failed to reach. The ambitious Rs 4,250 crore MMGSVY would provide all-weather road connectivity to remote villages and hamlets that are not covered under the centrally sponsored PMGSY. A high-level committee headed by the state Chief Secretary will monitor the progress of the scheme.
Under the PMGSY, villages with population of 500 or more and the tribal villages housing 250 people or more are covered. The MMGSVY would connect the villages having less than 250 population with all-weather roads, Chief Minister Raman Singh said after the meeting.
The state government is planning to connect villages located in inaccessible terrains of the Naxal-infested areas under the scheme. About 8,500 km of roads would be constructed under the project.
