Government of Madhya Pradesh is taking major steps for ensuring successful implementation of the provisions of MGNREGA. Works enlisted in schedule-I of the NREGA Act are been taken priority basis to provide employment and creating durable assets in the rural areas of the state. It is being observed from the state level that rural connectivity is the most important segment which is required for sustainable development of villages. The state government has launched a program namely “Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna (MMGSY)” to achieve the above purpose.

MMGSY has been originated in order to provide road connectivity to maximum/each village of Madhya Pradesh within the range of population between 500 and 250 which are not covered under the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojna(PMGSY) till the  year 2013. Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, Madhya Pradesh( MGNREGS-MP), Backward Region Grant Fund( BRGF ), State Plan Head are the three functional components for running the scheme of Mukhya Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna. Total 19,386 km length of gravel roads will be constructed. For this the total estimated expenditure will be of about Rs. 3,300 crore. The wage part for the construction of road will be done by the Job Card holders under MGNREGS-MP and no contractual work will be taken/done under MGNREGS-MP (as per NREGA act). Transportation of soil, watering and rolling for road construction will be bifurcated in the wage material expenditure (wage: material) ratio of 60:40 as per NREGA act. If the above ratio disbalances then the exceeding expenditure on the material component will be done by BRGF in the BRGF region else it will be done by State Plan Head. Within the road the construction of Culverts/Cross Drainage will be given on contractual basis and will be funded by BRGF or State Plan Head whichever is applicable in the particular region.

For full implementation and management of the scheme, a Project Management System is being designed and developed, under which monitoring and evaluation of entered data will be done for all the three components MGNREGS-MP, BRGF and State Plan Head individually and jointly and will be ported on the world wide web for the purpose of maintaining transparency and accountability.
