              Restructuring S.G.S.Y
Shortcomings experienced during
Large scale initiatives of some states – A.P,
 Kerala, and experiences of N.G.Os

 Committee - 2008
  Key lessons from large scale Experiences

Even the poorest family can come out of
abject poverty , in 6 - 8 years provided:

• They are organized, build and nurture own
  institutions, and, provided continuous
  handholding support
• able to access thrift and credit in repeat
  doses, for meeting varied priority
  requirements. External finance of Rs. 1.0
  lakh per family required                   8

Poverty elimination through social
mobilization, institution building,
financial inclusion and a portfolio of
sustainable livelihoods.

 Each poor family should have an annual
 income of at least Rs.50,000 per annum
( current poverty line is equivalent to
 Rs.23,000 per family per annum)
 Task: to reach out to 7.0 crores rural
  poor households, and, stay engaged
  with them till they come out of poverty

 Mission: To do this in a time bound

Organising the poor – to ensure a woman from
 each poor family is part of a S.H.G
Inclusion of the poorest, and meaningful role to
 them in all processes
Institutions of poor, greatest source of strength
 for the poor

 leaders, community professionals
Scaling up through community best
Exit policy for external support structures
Transparency and accountability
Community self reliance and self

Piloting by national unit: Triggering this work in
 40 districts and 100 Blocks
Proof of concept, training for state teams
Partnerships with experienced C.B.Os and
 resource state societies
Similar strategy was followed in Bihar
Eventually these 100 blocks, and 1000 villages
 become resource villages – training centres and
 immersion sites
       N.R.L.M - financial inclusion

Access to credit key to coming out of poverty.

A minimum of Rs.100,000 per family required,
in several doses over a period of 5 – 6 years. Of
this 90% has to come from financial

Financial inclusion at affordable cost holds the
        Building pro-poor financial sector

  Governments to finance S.H.Gs ( Karnataka)

  Vaidyanathan committee recommendations
 Promoting Financial intermediation by mature S.H.G

      National Rural Livelihoods Mission

Four streams of livelihoods promotion:

 coping with vulnerabilities – debt bondage,
  food insecurity, migration, health shocks
 existing livelihoods – stabilising and
  expanding, making them sustainable
 self employment - micro-enterprise

  growing sectors of the economy
        strengthening existing livelihoods

 Critical livelihoods are: agriculture, livestock, forestry
  and non-timber forest produce

 Promote institutions around livelihoods

 Promote end-to-end solutions, covering the entire
  value chain

 Key – knowledge dissemination. Development of
  community professionals in a large number
       strengthening existing livelihoods

 Community managed sustainable agriculture
  holds immense promise
 A family can secure additional annual incomes
  of Rs.50,000 with 0.5 – 1.0 acre of land ( 0.25 to
  0.50 acre irrigated + 0.50 to 0.75 acre rainfed
  lands )
 Natural farming, multi layer, poly crop models
  for food security and sustainable livelihoods
 Convergence with MG NREGS to improve soil
  and moisture conservation, and, soil fertility

 •   Swarna Bharat
 •   Aalok,
 •   Bhagyashree
 •   Abhilasha
 •   Biswas
 •   Navodaya
 •   Jiwan Aadhar
 •   Swachetna
  Issue: setting up of committees
N.R.L.M Advisory committee headed by
Minister, RD

N.R.L.M Co-ordination committee headed
by Secretary, RD

N.R.L.M Empowered committee – for
approving state action plans
   Issue: dedicated support structures
• Dedicated support structures a must to trigger
  social mobilisation, institution building of the
  poor, and livelihoods promotion
Poor should not be served poorly
• Best talent should work for the poor
• Working for the poor should be seen as an
  attractive career option
• Govt servants should not think that they have
  been punished, when they are posted to N.R.L.M
• Serious mismatch between outlay for programme
  funds and funding support costs
        Issue: dedicated support
• Present provision of administrative cost is 5% of
  program fund (excluding placement linked skill
  development and RSETI component) – is a serious
• Professional support of multi-disclinary teams,
  drawn from the open market and from the
  Government is essential.
• Good and dynamic HR policy ( Compensation and
  other terms) to attract and retain the best
• HR policy benchmarked with the best in the
  Issue: dedicated support structure
• National level – EFC has not agreed to the
  Ministry’s request for setting up a National level
  society for managing N.R.L.M
• However need for a dedicated society at the
  national level exists – this will reduce the learning
  curve for the states
• This unit will shrink when states pick up
• Full time Mission Director – essential. At present
  JS, S.G.S.Y is also the Mission Director
• Need for recruiting dedicated manpower, by
  paying them market rates for development
        Issue: dedicated support
• State level – except for A.P, T.N and Bihar –
  problems in each state as far as manning of the
  missions is concerned

• This is a serious issue in most of the states
    Issue: target group of N.R.L.M

•   Target group for N.R.L.M: Present N.R.L.M
    formulation - only those categorised as
•   In view of large exclusion errors in the
    present BPL list, what should be the
    target group under N.R.L.M
•   2011 BPL enumeration - many of the
    previous errors are expected to be fixed.
              Issue:Target group
•    Two formulations:
    1. All those who are not falling under
       automatic exclusion
    2. BPL list, plus,
    – All those groups eligible under Category IV
       MGNREGS works: SC/STs, beneficiaries of
       land reforms, beneficiaries of Indira Awas
       Yojana, small farmers or marginal farmers
       as defined in the Agriculture Debt Waiver
       and Debt Relief Scheme, 2008
    – Worked in MGNREGS – 30 days – for the
       last 2 years
   Issue: Financial inclusion – a
         serious challenge
  Poor performance of banks in lending to
  the rural poor, including S.H.Gs.
  Innovations required:
• NBFC – State Govt, banks and NABARD –
  for exclusively lending to S.H.Gs and S.H.G
• Mature S.H.G federations to become CFIs –
  community owned financial institutions (
  Mahila banks)
     Issue: Financial inclusion

• National bank for women S.H.Gs –
  essential to focus on the issues of rural
  poor women
      Issue: Financial inclusion

• Interest subvention on the same lines as
  ‘crop loans’ – to be taken with Finance
  Ministry ( DFS)

• Support states to set up their own NBFC s
  to finance S.H.Gs and S.H.G federations
  exclusively – to be taken up with Finance
  Ministry (DFS)
Issue: subsidies and administration
            of subsidies
At present N.R.L.M provides for the following subsidies:
    1. Revolving fund
    2. Capital subsidy
    3. Interest subsidy

Restructuring the first 2 subsidies in view of the negative
experiences of S.G.S.Y.
Subsidies should strengthen the institutional architecture
and not weaken them
       Issue: Role of subsidies and
       administration of subsidies

  Who will administer the subsidies: desirable to
  delink subsidy administration from DRDAs

• To make DRDAs focus on building quality institutions of
  the poor
• To create a level playing field for all S.H.Gs and S.H.G
  federations to access grants – whether they are promoted
  by N.G.Os, DRDAs or banks
• Alternative mechanisms: Banks, NABARD ?
      Issue: Placement linked skill
       development programme
• To achieve the target of 1 crore job opportunities
  for rural poor by the end of 12th Five Year Plan
• Present allocation is pegged at 15% of N.R.L.M
  outlay – this needs to be lifted
• This needs to be lifted and we should be funded
  for creating 1.0 crore jobs for BPL youth
            Strategy for IAP districts
 Special focus on states with large tribal
  population and IAP districts
 States to be advised to cover these districts
  under intensive N.R.L.M in the next 2 years
 Support to N.G.Os already working in these
 Saturation approach – cover all families
 Formation of S.H.Gs and federations in all
 Creation of Social capital – S.H.G and federation
  leaders, community resource persons, village
  para professionals
      Institution building – IAP districts
 Financial inclusion – a big challenge ??
 Agriculture livelihoods – C.M.S.A strategy
 N.T.F.P livelihoods – with forest dept.
 Convergence – MG NREGS, N.R.L.M and
  Forest dept funds
 Securing land rights of the tribals – para
  legal approach
 Focus on youth – placement linked skill
  development – special scheme to be taken
  up on the lines of the J&K SEE programme
