The PRADHAN MANTRI JAN VIKAS KARYAKRAM (PMJVK) is an area development programme implemented by Ministry of Minority Affairs in identified Minority Concentration Areas (MCAs) for developing socio-economic infrastructure and basic amenities. The Minority Concentration Areas to be covered under the scheme may increase in future, as the scheme is due for revision wef 2021-22. Therefore area coverage for the purpose of geo-tagging would include all those areas where projects are sanctioned under the scheme. The priority sectors under the scheme at present are Education, Health and Skill Development with special focus on women centric projects. However, proposals are also sanctioned in sectors like sports, sanitation, drinking water etc. depending on the need of the identified MCA.
The mechanism for monitoring of the projects exists at the Ministry as well as at the State/UT level. Ministry continuously reviews the progress of construction and commissioning of the sanctioned projects during the Empowered Committee meetings with the state authorities and also through other modes. In order to further strengthen the monitoring mechanism, Ministry proposes to Geo-tag all the physical assets already created under the PMJVK scheme as well as those which will be created in the years to come, through the Bhuvan portal.
