|Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram(PMJVK) is a Scheme designed to address the development deficits of the identified Minority Concentration Areas. Prior to PMJVK, the Ministry implemented Multi-sectoral Development Programme since 2008-09. The areas of implementation, under PMJVK, have been identified on the basis of minority population and socio-economic and basic amenities data of Census 2011 and will be known as Minority Concentration Areas. 870 MCBs, 321 MCTs and 109 MCDs Hqs which are backward, have been identified. PMJVK will continue to support the State/UTs in creating infrastructure to improve the quality of life of people and reduce the imbalances in the identified minority concentration areas to be at par with the rest of the country. To further strengthen the programme and ensure the benefit reaches the intended beneficiaries, project proposals will also be accepted from Central Government Departments/Organizations, Central Public Sector Enterprises/Undertakings, Central/State Universities and Armed Police Forces, apart from the State/UT governments. Under PMJVK, 80% of the resources would be utilized for projects related to education, health and skill development of which at least 33-40% will be earmarked for creation of assets/facilities for women/girls.
