Sampoorna Gramin Rozgaar Yojana (SGRY) – A Hope for those in the Rural Areas

Sampoorna Gramin Rozgaar Yojana

Unemployment is a real issue, grappling the economy of the country. And while the situation has gotten better for urban residents over the past couple of decades, the situation still remains to be deplorable for those residing in the rural areas. 

Agriculture happens to be the primary occupation in the rural areas and in an Agrarian economy; it stands to be ironic that it is a low paying job for those involved directly. Governments over the years have tried to deal with this issue and lead to the upliftment of those living a deplorable life due to poor or no income at all. 

And while many schemes have been implemented and taken off the grid, there happen to be a few that have proven to be successful over the years. One such scheme is the Sampoorna Gramin Rozgaar Yojana (SGRY). 

Sampoorna Gramin Rozgaar Yojana is a full-proof plan that never misses its mark. And out of the many schemes that have seen the light of day for the betterment of the poor, there happen to be only a few that worked out well, and one such scheme happens to be SGRY. 

Objectives of the Gramin Rozgaar Yojana

The broader objectives of the Sampoorna Gramin Rozgaar Yojana are mentioned as follows:

  1. The main objective of the scheme is to provide additional and supplementary wage-based employment to the residents of rural areas 
  2. To provide basic needs like food, clothing, and shelter along with education and vocational training to those who need it. 
  3. Another objective of the Gramin Rozgaar Yojana is to create durable communities that focus on social and economic assets and infrastructural development in rural areas of the country.

Provisions for safeguarding weaker sections and women of the society

Women and those below the Poverty line find it laborious to improve their pre-existing financial and social situations. To add to it, unemployment and lack of opportunities make it even worse, thereby creating a vicious cycle that’s impossible to get out of.

  3. Evident efforts will be directed towards reserving 30% of employment opportunities for women under the program. 

In conclusion

With the provisions made by the scheme, it not only ensures food and security but also makes sure that the nutritional requirements of the rural people are maintained. Financial, social and nutritional requirements when met lead to the progress of rural areas and the quality of service provided also enhances.
