                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

                                                                                            CHAPTER- I

    India adopted economic planning with the launch of the First Five Year Plan in 1951. Initially,
    the Five Year Plans were mainly the centralized plans. But from the very first plan onwards,
    attempts have been made by the government to introduce some degree of decentralization into
    the planning process by strengthening local level planning. Till the end of 10th plan period,
    decentralized planning was in dormant stage and actual planning in a decentralized mode failed
    to evolve due to many reasons. But the process took momentum during 11th plan period when
    all out emphasis was placed to make the decentralized planning realistic. The evolution of
    decentralized planning passed through different phases in the country and accelerated during
    the present plan i.e. 11th plan period. The central government put utmost emphasis on
    decentralized and participatory planning process in the coming 12th Five Year Planning period

    State Initiatives in Planning

    The Government of Orissa has been instrumental in carrying out the decentralized planning in
    the state covering all the districts. With the Guidance & support of the Planning and
    Coordination Department, Government of Orissa, since 2008-09, each district has been
    preparing the district plan articulating their physical and financial requirements. The state has
    identified a panel of TSIs in the state, based on their experience and expertise, to facilitate the
    district planning process. The TSIs have been trained / oriented by the Department so that they
    can effectively facilitate the process at the district level. The TSIs have been instrumental in
    concretising the decentralized planning process in the state with the support of district
    administration and DPMUs.

    CTRAN as TSI

    CTRAN has been assigned with the responsibility to facilitate the district planning process in
    Ganjam. The assignment given by the Government is to support the district administration in
    preparing perspective plan for 12th plan period and annual plan for 2012-13.

    1.1     Methodology
    The approach to district planning process was both participatory and consultative in nature,
    which encompassed stakeholders from different sectors. The information collection and sharing
    methodology included interview, participatory consultation, scheduled based information
    collection and feedback collection. The Integrated District Planning Manual developed by
    Planning Commission, Government of India was referred for the process of data collection,
    information sharing and planning. At GP level, PRI members were considered to be the major


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    contributors whereas district administration and line departments played an important role in the
    overall consultation process. At the block level, mixed approach was adopted taking both
    government officials and PRI members into the fold of plan preparation. Opinions of all the
    stakeholders were taken for preparing the district plan. For planning, both primary and
    secondary information were collected with reference to the guideline issued by P & C
    Department, Government of Orissa. The approach was basically consultative and participatory
    in nature whereas emphasis was laid upon both qualitative and quantitative dimensions of
    district situation. The overall processes followed are reflected below.

                Organising district level consultation meeting with all the line departments, PRI
                 members and civil society organisations.
                Organising block level and NAC level workshops with PRI members of block/NAC

                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    planning, priority, vision and also how to plan in grass-root level. However, the following
    commonly agreed issues are developed through consultation.

           Peoples demand more funds on development of road and communication.
           People of the district are more conscious about sanitation and safe drinking water and
            the present fund is not sufficient to meet the local demand. So they are demanding
            additional funds to fulfill the requirement.
           Additional funds should be provided for development of irrigation sector
           Provision of adequate funds to take up over head tanks under rural as well urban piped
            water supply schemes


    1.12: History of Ganjam

    1.12.1: Historical Background

             Ancient Ganjam -The Ganjam area was a part of ancient Kalinga empire which was
            occupied by Ashok in 261 B.C During this period it was the main route of South and East
            for shipping. Its huge number of black elephants attracted king Ashok for invading

            Mediaeval Ganjam-The district was named after the old township and European fort of
            Ganjam situated on the northern bank of river Rushikulya, which was the headquarter of
            the district. In 1757 it was French Commander Bussy, who marched into Ganjam and
            realized areas of tribute from feudal chiefs. It was the English who ultimately defeated
            the French in the Deccan and annexed Ganjam in 1759.

            Modern Ganjam–The modern Ganjam carved out of the Vizag district of Madras
            Presidency and came into existence on 31.03.1936. The office of the Collector, Ganjam
            was established in 1794. Ganjam was a part of the then Vizag District of Madras
            Presidency till 31.03.1936. The district got separated from Madras Presidency and
            formed a part of the newly created state of Orissa with effect from 1.4.1936. The re-
            organized district comprises the whole of Ghumusor, Chatrapur and Baliguda divisions,
            part of old Berhampur taluk, part of old Ichapur taluk, part of Parlakhemundi plains and
            the whole of Parlakhemundi agency area in the old Chicacola division.

    As per recent, the 1992 reorganized plan of Ganjam by Government of Orissa, the 7 blocks of
    Parlakhemundi subdivision were separated and the new district of Gajapati came into being. As
    such Ganjam at present constitutes of 3 subdivisions, 22 blocks, 14 Tahasils and 18 urban


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 


    Ganjam district is broadly divided into two divisions, the coastal plains area in the east and hill
    and table lands in the west. The eastern ghats run along the western side of the district. The
    plains lies between the eastern ghats and the Bay of Bengal. Since the hills are close to the
    sea, the rivers flowing from hills are not very long and are subject to sudden floods. The plains
    are narrow because of the absence of big rivers. The coastal plains in the east contain more
    fertile and irrigated lands. Towards the centre and south it is hilly with beautiful well watered
    valley. The south eastern portion is fertile. The extreme north east is occupied by a portion of
    the famous Chilika lake.Spreading over an area of 8206.0 Sq.km, it is surrounded by
    Kandhamal in the North-West, Nayagarh in the North, Khurda in the North-East, Gajapati district
    in the West and Bay of Bengal in the South-East. On its Southern periphery the district borders
    the state of Andhra Pradesh. (See Map 2)

    1.13.1: LAND AND SOIL

    Broadly, physiographic features of the district can be divided into two parts namely, the coastal
    plains in the East and the hills and table land in the West. While the former is fertile and close to
    irrigation sources, the latter is rocky and lacks irrigation facilities. The plains lying between the
    Eastern Ghats and the Bay of Bengal are narrow. Since the hills are close to the sea, the rivers
    flowing from hills are not very long and are subject to sudden flood. The rock pattern of Ganjam
    district indicates that there are brown and laterites, Gondwanas, Cuddapah, newer Dolerites
    and Archus comprising of igneous metamorphic rocks. The chief rock types are Khandalite,
    Granitoieo and Granitifrious. Generally the soil of Ganjam has three types; Sandy loam (yellow)
    2-Clay loam (alluvial) 3-Latraitie (red). (See Map 1.2)

    1.19 : Health

    Health care system in Ganjam needs substantial improvement. The strength of doctors is not as
    per allocation. Besides, due to insecure and inadequate communication system, the doctors are
    unable to render services to patients and at most times it becomes impossible on their part to
    attend for follow-up actions in inaccessible and interior parts of the district.

    Hence, adequate steps are necessary to provide qualitative, preventive, promotive and curative
    health care services to all people, especially the vulnerable and disadvantaged groups. Ganjam
    district has 30 CHCs and 92 PHCs. It has also one Medical college with advanced and modern
    health care facilities. There are 365 doctors working in different DHH, CHC and PHCs. There
    are 460 Sub Centrea and ANM working for providing better health and alternative care service
    in Ganjam.

    The Bay of Bengal touches the Eastern coast of Ganjam and which extends more than 60 km, it
    provides unique opportunity for fishing port facilities at Gopalpur for trade.

    1.32.1: Rivers, Lakes and Streams

    There are a number of perennial streams and rivers flowing through this district, flourishing its
    cultivation-culture and agricultural economy. Among them, the river Rushikulya, Badanadi,
    Baghua, Dhanei, Bahuda and Ghodahad are the prominent ones that provide opportunities for
    the irrigation facility. The vast river basin of Rushikulya offers potential for exploration of ground
    water. These rivers provide opportunity for fishing which is the chief livelihood of many people in
    the district. Brakish water lagoon Chilika attracts tourists from every corner of country and from
    around the globe. The perennial streams Nirmaljhar and Taptapani contain medicinal sulphuric


    The long sea and Chilika coast line is the source of rich marine products in the district. Besides
    this the coastline serves as a rich resource for lime shells. As a consequence this district
    supplies sizable portion of total lime needs of the state. Ganjam and Humma near the mouth of
    river Bahuda and Rushikulya are rich sources of salt production, which caters not only to the
    needs of the district but also of the state. The total salt producing area of the district is about
    5500 acres, out of which 1238 acres are under co-operative societies fold and the rest are on
    private lease basis. On an average about 50000 to 60000 tons of salt are produced annually.


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    About 2000 acres in Ganjam have been identified as suitable for salt farming in the state, but
    only 50% of the area is utilised. The rest is not being used due to various reasons including
    siltation, unfavourable topography despite this; Ganjam remains as the major salt-producing
    district in the state.


    Most of its people depend on agriculture as their means of livelihood. About 50% people survive
    on daily wages. Domestic animal resource, marine products and forest products help to add
    additional income for the people of Ganjam. Only about 30% people are service holders in
    Government as well as Non-Government/private sectors. Most of the working population is
    working in the private sector outside the district.


    Social life is the indicator of economic status of a community. Though the district has rich socio-
    cultural background, the economic status of the community is not sound. Poverty stands as a
    barrier in the path of progress. Alcoholic practices of people, which also gets transmitted to
    other people ruins the social life of the district.

    The district’s cultural heritage is dominated and influenced by Telugu people. Its cultural
    heritage is obviously glamorous. They do not prohibit traditional practices and have not
    abandoned many of their traditional cultural practices. They are less aware of harmful sexual
    behaviors due to illiteracy and ignorance. As a result HIV/AIDS is highly prevalent in the district.

    1.36: LANGUAGE

    Language is the mirror of socio-cultural profile means of communication and symbol of
    progress. Language is a great vehicle not only in exchange of thought but also in cementing
    close bonds of friendship and affinity that is essential for social mobilization. Oriya is the mother
    tongue of the people of Ganjam. However, some people in this district speak Telugu and
    Schedule tribe population speaks Tribal language.


    Agriculture is the primary occupation of inhabitants of this district. However due to inadequate
    irrigation and less fertile land, output of agro products falls short of expectation in this district.
    Barring a few, the labour class is also engaged in other occupations such as factory work,
    construction, collection of forest materials, grazing of cattle’s etc. Most of the working population
    is migrating to outside the state in search of employments and income. Ganjam witnesses a
    high degree of migration in the state. Very few people are engaged in business or in
    employment. Only a few are engaged in petty trades.

    1.46: Irrigation Facilities

    Agriculture undoubtedly, is the dominant factor for the growth of district economy, but, ‘Irrigation’
    holds the key for raising agricultural productivity and production. Inadequacy of irrigational
    infrastructure in the district has inhabited the agriculture sector. Hence much importance has
    been attached to the irrigation sector (both flow and lift) in present plan strategy. Irrigation is
    most essential input for agricultural production and productivity. Double and triple cropping in
    the district is feeble due to lack of adequate irrigation facilities.

                                                                                           CHAPTER- II


    Ganjam District is richly endowed with immense (i) natural resources like river/stream water,
    forests and some mineral resources, (ii) human resources with social mobilization of women
    SHGs & NGOs and (iii) physical resources such as MIPs/LIPs, watershed micro projects,
    WHS/DWs etc. State of progress, opportunities for development and identification of critical
    gaps can be measured and understood through an in-depth SWOT analysis of the district and
    its sectors.

            horticulture crops like paddy, mango, cashew, banana, spices, cotton, til, kandul, maize,
            screw pine etc.
           The soil type is skeletal, red, yellow and alluvial and is potentially fertile for cultivation
           Ganjam is the largest producer of paddy in the state

           Ganjam has rich cultural heritage like different folk dances, (Prince Group of Ganjam
            was awarded in Delhi recently). The inhabitants found in this district are very hard
            working and progressive in nature
           Development of ‘Social Capital’ in the form of SHGs (by NGOs and government
            agencies) provides conducive atmosphere for rapid economic development. Increased
            credit absorption both in non-farm and farm sectors is a healthy sign
           There are a number of perennial streams in the backward hilly areas of the district,
            which would be harnessed through construction of check-dams, hedgerows, WHS and
            Micro-watershed projects which have been proposed to create increased irrigation
            Ayacut, prevent drought situations, soil erosion and re-charge underground water level


           Inadequate basic amenities at the urban areas/growth centers
           Inadequate irrigation facilities in undulating and interior terrain of the district
           Inadequate technical skills in manpower results in underutilized extension facilities in
            agriculture & allied sector
           High prevalence of HIV/AIDS/STD in certain pockets


           Integration of agriculture and horticulture can be taken up in a big way
           Scope for Agro, food processing and mineral based industrial units
           Marine based industrial units can be set up
           The Chilika Lake can be better managed to exploit its full potential
           Irrigation facilities are much better developed in comparison to other districts.
            Opportunities exist in efficiently utilizing the full potential or irrigation infrastructures
           Opportunity for export and import of agricultural products through rail and road
            infrastructure that is relatively better developed than in many parts of the state
           Major Industries: good scope for ancillary and downstream small-scale units
           Excellent scope for developing and marketing the products of the tribal artisans and
            marine products
           Excellent scope for promoting Eco-tourism
           Availability of good natural, human and forest resources
           Progressive and hard-working farming communities
           Perennial nallas in backward areas for WHS/hedgerows and check-dams
           The district has 244 artificial insemination centres which can help in increasing the
            crossbred population of cattle, which in turn would increase production and productivity
            of derived products. Similarly there are 517 breedable indigenous buffaloes and 3296
            crossbreed buffaloes that would add to the increase in yield rate of milk and milk
            derivatives like Ghee, butter, cheese etc.

            including NTFPs and handicrafts
           Frequent natural calamities like drought, flood, cyclone etc. affecting the economic
            backbone of the people in the district
           With inter-state migration of labourers from the district to Gujarat and Mumbai the
            menace of HIV ‘+’/AIDS has risen to alarming proportions

                               SWOT Analysis of the Individual Sectors

           In order to have better accessibility, rural connectivity and market connectivity to the
            growth centers, connectivity projects have been identified and incorporated in the
            Integrated District Plan
           Major focus on ‘Integrated district plan’ has been attached mainly to the health,
            education and common infrastructure development sectors, which are found to be the
            keys for the integrated development of the district by the year 2020
           Besides irrigation, food and agriculture creation and formation of markets for trade and
            development, have also been given priority

                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 



    People living with dignity and reasonable comfort with high level of literacy, knowledge and
    skills, good health and gender equity is the Vision 2020 for Ganjam. Accelerated and inclusive
    growth with high rate of employment, income and nutrition will be the key to reach various goals
    envisioned. Capacity building, adopting improved technology across sectors, improving
    management and coordination, increasing investment and its efficiency in key sectors, ensuring
    high level of participation in a decentralized set-up, and improving processing and marketing
    and public governance with social audit are the strategic interventions to reach various
    development goals. Vision 2020 of Ganjam is summarized below:

        1. Reduce poverty line up to 12% of total population and promote a zone free from hunger
           and starvation
        2. Reduce poverty to 12% of total population and ensure freedom from hunger and
        3. Balanced, inclusive and complementary growth of rural and urban areas
        4. Improve Human Development Index to 0.75 and well-being
        5. Reduce disparity across regions (Blocks and Panchayats) and socio-economic groups
           and ensure gender equity and sustainability

    Poverty reduction entails convergence of all sectors in both urban and rural areas. This requires
    concerted efforts with inbuilt application and flexibility to spread poverty mitigating strategies in
    all sectors. Thus if potential for growth in a particular sector is saturated, then resources can be
    diverted to generate growth and employment in other sectors where such investments would be
    better utilized. Inclusive Growth which emphasizes rural non-agricultural activities (mineral and
    agro-processing, hotels and tourism, and miscellaneous services), accelerated agricultural
    growth, increased labour productivity (attitude, knowledge and technology-based), transparency
    in public distribution system and welfare activities would create a conducive environment for
    poverty reduction.

    3.1: Agriculture

    Accelerated agricultural growth and labour productivity would contribute considerably in
    reducing poverty. The major thrust areas for the development of the sector by 2020 include:

           Improve performance of traditional agriculture through technology intervention
           Use advanced technology including bio-technology in potential areas
           Identify high potential areas for multi crops and new crops to be introduced
           Improve and strengthen agro-products marketing


                             Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

            Introduce IT in market and weather information dissemination
            Modification of prices of agricultural produce
            Agricultural research and development policy
            Implement water resource use plan
            Agro-processing for high value addition

    3.2: Horticulture

    Horticultural crops like fruits, vegetables and medicinal plants have high market value and
    provide higher returns to farm investment as compared to agricultural produce. Growth in
    horticulture at 10% per annum is feasible considering the resources of the district. The major
    thrust areas in this activity are as follows

            Training and orientation of farmers, women SHGs for horticulture
            Ensuring supply of quality planting materials

    3.3: Fishery

    Developing fisheries is an alternative means to generate employment and to reduce the
    pressure on agriculture. Ganjam has the potential for increasing fish production especially due
    to the presence of Chilika Lake and large number of fresh water bodies as well as Bay of

    The major thrust for this growth would come from marine and inland fishing that are listed

           Conservation of Chilika Lake
           Technological up gradation for marine fishermen
           Skill up-gradation of fish farmers
           Promoting loan facilities and credit linkages through banks, Co-operatives and

    3.13: Balanced, inclusive and complementary growth of rural and urban areas:

    Rural-Urban Link up

           Growth of infrastructure like road, school, hospital etc. is the pre-condition to have rural-
            urban link up. Along with these infrastructures, reliable and uninterrupted electric power
            supply is a must to achieve this goal. Only 685 villages are left to be electrified. 100%
            electrification has to be achieved
           Steps should be taken to use solar power as alternative source of energy at affordable
            cost. All weather roads should be created in all villages by 2020. Every village should
            have a knowledge center with computer and internet facility. Unemployed youth
            including women can be appointed in these centers. They will act in liaison with the local
            political representatives to take steps on various development issues of the village
           Urban development with gender sensitiveness
           Likewise, infrastructure facility should be created in the slums of the urban areas.
            Education and health care facilities in the slums can be developed with PPP mode
           The economic empowerment of women in urban areas especially in the slum dwellers is
            necessary. Involvement of women in the various unorganized sectors will provide
            alternative sources of income
           Reduction of Impact of disaster
           Technological interventions such as vulnerability information mapping system should be
            in place to reduce the impact of disasters


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    3.14: Human Development and Wellbeing

    Taking into perspective the three basic components that Human Development Index (HDI) takes
    into account viz., Education, Health and Livelihood, Vision 2020 entails the increase of the
    Human Development Index from 0.551 to 0.750.

    3.15: Education

    The literacy rate of the district as per the 2001 census is 62.94%. The Female literacy rate is
    even lower at 47.7%. These are aimed at increasing up to 90% and 80% respectively.
        One of the primary strategies is to ensure that all children below the age of 14 get quality
            education. The Mid-day meal programme should aim for 100% coverage of potential
            beneficiaries. This can be achieved if the quantity, quality and regularity of the meals are
            ensured. The aim should be to deliver the meals in such a manner that children find it
            appealing to receive meals in schools. Once regularity in attendance is achieved the
            quality of the teaching can be upgraded. To ensure quality education, the teachers
            should be least involved in other programmes of the government like census work, voter
            list preparation etc.
        The rate of dropouts should be reduced in the primary, secondary and higher secondary
            education. In tribal pockets, Oriya tribal bi-language books and teaching aids can
            provide a motivation to reduce dropout rate. The families should inculcate the value of
            learning in the minds of their children. Besides, the teacher-student ratio should be
        There should be one vocational education institution for each block in the district. The
            vocational training centre should aim at making the youth self reliant by imparting
            training on employment generation activities
        Awareness generation among mothers in the family on the importance of primary
            education especially in context to the girl child

    3.16: Women Participation

           Better participation in decision making process at all level
           The female literacy level of the district is 47.70%. Once the education level and earning
            of the women folk is developed, they can better participate in the decision making not
            only in their households but in the society at large. Total literacy along with some
            financial support can go a long way in this regard
           Effective functioning of Women SHGs and income generation. To make SHGs more
            efficient, the members of the WSHGs should be given trainings. The capacity building of
            the SHGs can be achieved by exposure visit to other successful SHGs of the state as
            well as national NGOs


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    3.17: Health

    3.17.1: Reduce MMR and IMR
            Strategies to reduce maternal mortality and infant mortality include

        1   Motivating pregnant women for institutional delivery
        2   Provision of health kits to the pregnant women
        3   Free of cost institutional deliveries and follow-up consultations by the doctors
        4   Free of cost immunization for the new born (though very nominal charge is being taken)
        5   Immunization should reach to remote areas
        6   Nutritional food support during pregnancy and lactation
        7   Prohibition of early marriage/teen marriage
        8   Increase in awareness of women to take special care to maintain balanced diet during
            pregnancy to avoid low birth weight babies
    To reduce maternal mortality, malnutrition especially during the period of pregnancy has to be
    curbed. Besides promotion of healthy eating habits malnutrition has to be reduced. This would
    take place with

           Poverty alleviation so that more income is available for avoiding malnutrition not only of
            women but also for all
           Removing biases against women so that they receive their fair share of the food in the
            household diet

    3.17.2: Panchavyadhi Chikischa

    There should be 50% lowering of the five common communicable diseases i.e. malaria, leprosy,
    diarrhea, acute respiratory infections and scabies by 2015 and subsequent reduction thereafter.
    Provisions for mobile hospital service to remote areas of the district should be made.

    3.17.3: Combating HIV/AIDS

    Ganjam district is having high prevalence of HIV/AIDS in the state. HIV/AIDS has reached
    endemic proportions in Ganjam primarily due to the migrant population of the district. Ganjam
    had more than thousand cases of HIV/AIDS. The plan should envision no new cases of the
    disease after 2020. This needs:

           Awareness programme to educate people about the modes of transmission of the
            disease and its fatal nature
           Sensitizing vulnerable communities especially migrants about safe sex behavior and

    3.18: Reduce disparity across regions (Blocks and Panchayats) and Socio-Economic

    There is disparity in the sectoral growth across the blocks in the district. There are a number of
    factors that leads to imbalance growth across the district such as industrial set up, availability of
    raw materials, method of production in agriculture, fertilizer consumption, stock of animal
    resources, infrastructures like roads, bridges, electricity, schools, colleges, hospitals etc. The
    reasons for the backwardness of the blocks should be found out and region specific strategies
    should be adopted accordingly (Vide the table below).

                                                                                         CHAPTER- IV



    The district plan is the primary requirement of decentralized planning. Funds available from
    various sources at the district level for carrying out developmental programmes. These
    resources need to be articulated in a coordinated and convergent manner to have better
    outcomes. There are few instances of convergence of human, financial and institutional
    resources. Therefore, the need for integrated local area plans based on specific endowments
    and needs of each area is stressed from the beginning of planned development. Attempt is
    made from the Panchayat and ULB level requirement to that of district level to make the Annual
    Plan 2012-13 for the district. The objective of district planning is to design an integrated and
    participatory action plan for the development of local area in general with respect to all sectors.

    4.1: Sector wise Resource Availability for the Plan Year 2012-13

    Total outlay for 2012-13 is estimated at Rs.155150.51 lakh. Inter-sectoral allocation is presented
    in table 4.1.Taking into consideration of the importance, the following allocations have been
    proposed: (Vide the table below)

    Basing on the local requirement, majority of the allotment is made towards sectors like Social
    Services, Rural Development, Transport and Irrigation & Flood Control which have been given
    high priority for the district. The requirement based on the proposals received from different
    levels which can be met from different flagship programmes. The total gap of resources for the
    year 2012-13 can be adjusted and narrowed down from programmes like BRGF, NREGS,,
    PMGSY and other Flagship programmes. With the availability of additional resources the gap
    pipeline would be converged.

    Gap Filling: The total resource requirement for the district is Rs.157425.34 lakh.The total
    resource avialble is Rs155150.5 lakh. Hence, there is a gap of Rs.2274.82 lakh which can be
    filled up from NREGS, BRGF, SSA, & NRHM

    Hence more emphasis has been given to Agriculture and allied sector, Irrigation and Flood
    control sector, Transport sector and social sector in the Comprehensive District Plan of Ganjam
    district for the year 2012-13.

                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 


                                                                                        CHAPTER- VI

    Ganjam is the most populous district of Orissa having 22 Blocks and 3 Sub-Divisions. The
    districts has always had very high growth potential, however it still remains undeveloped in
    many areas in comparison to other districts. Although the district has abundance of high quality
    human and non-human resources, the various sectors have not been able to interlink, thus
    leaving many regions of the district poorly developed. We base our exercise on the premise that
    the annual plan for 2012-13 will achieve set targets and also converge with the objectives of the
    annual plan.

    Comprehensive District Plan needs co-operation and co-ordination among all the sectors and
    the Plan has been prepared based upon the growth of Eleventhh Five Year Plan. To reduce
    poverty to 12% of the total population of the district and for achieving inclusive growth at around
    6.5% during the Plan Period, there are some particular sectors or departments which need
    convergence for better development of the schemes and for better planning. Sectors like
    Agriculture and Allied Activities, Irrigation and Flood Control and Rural Development etc. can be
    synchronized for achieving the goals of 12th Plan and the target of 2012-13. These departments
    need to plan according to the requirement of the beneficiary as well as the funds availability. For
    all the sectors Rs. 155150.51 Lakh is proposed for the year 2012-13, which is derived from GN
    Statement A. The abstract is provided in table 6.1.

    6.1: Agriculture

    Agriculture is the mainstay of the district economy providing livelihood support to a large section
    of the population. The growth of this sector generally determines the pace of development in the
    district. If agriculture sector can suitably be managed to grow at a rate of 4% per annum, it
    would contribute substantially to reduce poverty in the district in general and the marginalized in
    particular. Barring some minor variation, agriculture and animal husbandry sector in the district
    has grown at a rate of 4.45% during 1999-00 to 2004-05, much higher than all of Orissa for the
    same period (2.28%). This is indicative of the fact that 4% growth rate of agriculture is feasible.

    There are four major constraints to agriculture development in the district. They can be broadly
    categorized as:

                 Institutional Capacity
                 Physical constraints
                 Technological constraints and
                 Financial constraints. With proper capacity building and organizational arrangements
                  physical and technological constraints could be minimized to achieve vision goals.

    Development of Agriculture and allied Sector:

    Needs Assessment and priority setting are essential to the successful planning and
    achievement of targets in all sectors. This will have an immense impact on Allied sectors in the
    coming years. Horticulture, Animal Husbandry, Fisheries, Watershed Development would play a
    vital role in the economy of Ganjam. The Allied sectors must be taken into account while
    planning as they would result in the improvement of backward areas, efficient utilization of
    natural, financial and human resources, poverty reduction, hunger free society and increase in
    generation of income and employment. These sectors would be instrumental in the overall
    empowerment of farmers and rural and urban entrepreneurs and lead to holistic development of
    the district.

    Several steps would be undertaken for development in this sector. Opening up of new seed
    sales centers and timely supply of fertilizers and pesticides will facilitate higher productivity.
    Ganjam already has one of the highest cropping intensities in the state (184%). Currently the
    Net irrigated area is about 62% of the Net area sown.

    Due to increase in pressure on land it is imperative to increase land productivity through the use
    of modernized methods and double cropping. In order to maintain employment levels or
    increase them, there would be use of labour intensive techniques incorporating tools. However,
    as the percentage of people engaged in agriculture is high in comparison to its contribution to
    the DDP, a substantial number of dependants on agriculture need to be absorbed in other
    sectors particularly allied activities through employment generation.

                       Graph 6. 1 Outlays for Agriculture and Allied Sectors

    Crop Diversification: (Integrated Farming):

    Farmers in Ganjam are mainly small and marginal farmers. This poses a need for employment
    from other allied sources apart from agriculture to meet livelihood needs. Lack of irrigation
    facilities makes Agricultural growth severely dependent on rainfall. Multicropping and Crop
    diversification is a must for development in agriculture.

    The blocks in the district can be categorized into upland, midlands and lowlands. Irrigation
    facilities vary from Block to Block. Rocky uplands are used for horticulture crops like Jatropha,
    Maize and other crops that require less water. In Blocks such as Hinjilicut, Kukudakhandi,
    Ganjam, and Aska where irrigation facilities are better farmers need to be motivated to cultivate
    cash crops.

    Various project proposals have been undertaken under agriculture and allied sectors. Steps will
    be taken for efficient utilization of the resources received under this sector. The major thrust
    areas for the development of the sector by 2020 includes the following:

        1. Training to farmers on seed production technology
        2. Research through central and state agencies on trial and evaluation of new varieties of
           rice, pulses and oilseeds
        3. Preparation of data base for rain fed area development
        4. Empowerment of women through participation in natural resource management
        5. Strengthening of ATMA to improve delivery mechanism

    Floricultural Crops such as Marigold, Rose, Tuberose and Jasmine have good potential for
    growth in Ganjam which is already the largest producer of Marigold and the third largest
    producer of Tuberose in the state. There is also potential for the production and demand of
    roses in the district, particularly in Berhampur city. However, on a national level most of the
    demand is met from the state of Andhra Pradesh.

    scientific culture. Annual Plan outlay of Rs. 1225.63 lakh is proposed for Fishery sector for the
    year 2012-13.


    Livestock sector is highly livelihood intensive. Livestock are inseparable from the lives of weaker
    sections. This sector is an instrument of poverty alleviation. Livestock serves as employment
    exchange providing its users daily bread, transport, energy etc. Income from livestock holding is
    more equitably distributed.

    Existing indicators of animal husbandry sector in the district:

    Considering a total bovine population of 972966 in the district, both Animal Husbandry and Agro
    processing have huge potential to supplement income of farmers. The ultimate objective would
    be to make Animal Husbandry so organized a sector in the district that it will become the
    primary source of income for those without land. Further, there are 132 milk societies
    functioning under the aegis of Great Ganjam Gajpati Milk Union. There are 245 Livestock Aid
    Centers (LACs) giving services throughout the district. Over 188 LACs are having Artificial
    Insemination facility. Six milk routes are operating in Ganjam. There are two chilling plants at
    Berhampur and Aska and seven bulk-cooling units are spread throughout Ganjam. Hatcheries
    and feed plants are also being established. Such resources provide a good impetus for the
    expansion of animal husbandry activities.

    Goat and sheep rearing augment household incomes in tribal and remote areas. Under SGSY,
    animal husbandry is being identified as a core activity. Identifying new milk routes in the remote,
    involving SHG groups and tribals will provide a thrust for future interventions. Critical
    infrastructural and institutional gaps will be addressed in the Annual Plan and BRGF in the
    coming years.

    Objectives and strategies for perspective plan period

    The major objectives of the sector in the district are

           Up-gradation of stock and increase per capita availability of milk, egg and meat
           Capacity building of stakeholders
           Involvement of private sector for processing of products and effective delivery of
            veterinary services

    Following strategies will be adopted to fulfill these objectives:

           Ecological and environmental sustainability of the livestock sector growth will be the
            main focus. Modernization will be ensured with constant monitoring of environmental
            effects on growth process. Policies and programmes will be designed for effective
            mitigation of their adverse effects

            with the hotels and restaurants of the locality
           Monitoring of animal diseases; control, containment and eradication and breeding
            services will be done regularly by respective authorities

    Annual Plan outlay of Rs. 291.13 lakh is proposed for the year 2012-13.


    Unscientific farming, ignorance and biotic pressure are some of the major reasons for the
    erosion of valuable soils. This has led to the land becoming unproductive and sterile. To
    overcome these lapses, holistic approach on soil and water conservation is highly essential
    especially to ensure sustainable production in Agriculture and Other related activities.

    The district has 11000 ha. of cultivable waste land, 5000 ha. of current fallow and 8000 ha. of
    other fallow land. The watershed development program under NWDPRA was implemented in 14
    micro watershed areas covering treatable area of 8.072 ha. So far, 406 Water Harvesting
    structures/hedgerows have been constructed; out of which 252 are functioning and 154 are
    defunct. The department has also undertaken shelterbelt plantation along the sea beach of Bay
    of Bengal over 18.5 km. starting from Golabandh to Rameyapatana within the range of 1 km.
    width from the tide formation zone. The aim of the plantation is to stabilize the coastal sand
    dunes by reducing drifting of sand grains and minimizing the destructive effects of cyclones.

    It is proposed to construct W.H.S, farm ponds, percolation tanks and improvement of W.H.S,
    hedgerows and Cross bunds in the non-irrigated rain-fed patches under the annual plan. This
    will result in solving the following problems:

         Provide life saving irrigation to the nearby crop field
         Check the soil erosive velocity of water and erosion of soil
         Recharge the ground water and thus improve the ground water level
         Generate employment opportunity
    These projects would be implemented in identified Watershed Areas. The user groups would be
    formed and their involvement in operation of the schemes would be ensured so that the projects
    after completion would be handed over to them for future maintenance.

    The National Watershed Development Project for Rain fed Areas (NWDPRA) is a centrally
    sponsored scheme under Macro Management of Agriculture at 90:10 ratio between the
    Government of India and the State. The scheme aims at sustainable natural resource
    management, enhancement of agriculture productivity and increased production of bio-mass
    and restoration of ecological balance in rain-fed areas on Watershed approach. The Scheme for
    River Valley Project (RVP) is being implemented in the catchments of inter-state-River Valley


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    Projects to prevent soil erosion from the catchments and to reduce siltation of multipurpose
    reservoirs under Macro-Management of Work Plan.

    Annual Plan outlay of Rs. 255.81 lakh is proposed for the year 2012-13.

    SECTOR II: Rural Development
    Rural population constitutes nearly 82.40% of total population in Ganjam. Rural sector suffers
    from multiple disadvantages like high incidence of poverty, poor access to health care facilities,
    disguised unemployment in primary sector etc. Despite several efforts, these parameters
    continue to remain at high level causing distress in growth. During the 12th Five Year Plan, it has
    been planned to adopt various strategies to create more gainful employment, improve economic
    condition, and better standard of living. This will result in improving social and economic
    infrastructure to the rural people and providing universal access to basic minimum facilities.
    Development Vision: Proper implementation of various schemes will generate huge
    employment opportunities for various categories of workers in rural and urban areas. In addition,
    direct employment opportunities will be provided under NREGA. At least 200 days of additional
    employment will be ensured to rural people by 2020. NREGA activities will be converged with
    other sectors like soil conservation, horticulture and fishery. Apart from NREGA, SGSY will be
    implemented efficiently. Over the years, attempts will be made to improve the quality and
    quantity of employment, productivity of workers and their income.

        Ensure employment for about 2 lakh households during the 12th Plan period
        Provide employment to all job aspirants under NREG by utilizing 90% NREGA fund
        Ensure to provide 200 days of additional employment to rural people
        Reduce poverty by 15%

        Rural Infrastructure development
        Supply of drinking water and total sanitation
        Providing sustainable source of livelihood

    Outlay: To achieve these objectives through the above strategy a sum of Rs. 10998.60 lakh
    has been proposed under various rural development related plans and schemes for the Annual
    Plan 2012-13.

    6.2: Rural Employment

    6.2.1: Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY):

    This scheme covers all aspects of self employment such as organization of BPL families into
    SHGs, skill up-gradation, training and development of infrastructure along with market link-up.
    The objective is to enable every targeted family to cross poverty line within 2 years (2010-11 &


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    2011-12) by providing income generating assets through bank credit and government subsidy.
    With the funding pattern of 75:25 ratio between Center and State.

    6.2.2: Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS):
    The objective is to provide livelihood security to rural households by providing at least 100 days
    of wage employment (unskilled manual work). The details are presented below:
        1. To strengthen food security and to improve nutritional status of unemployed and
           underemployed households by providing 100 days of employment to each BPL family
           willing to work
        2. To optimize resources available under all the development programmes operational at
           the Panchayat level and to provide best possible and meaningful option for
           convergence/dovetailing of all such programmes
        3. To derive maximum benefit in favour of the rural poor specially with regard to generation
           of employment opportunities both in terms of wage and self employment, through
           creation of need based optimum infrastructure at the Panchayat level in the short term
           and develop self sustaining robust Panchayat economy in the long run
        4. To create necessary infrastructure in the following categories
              i. Water conservation and drought proofing including afforestation
              ii. Land development
              iii. Flood control and protection measures (including drainage in water logged areas)
              iv. Rural connectivity

    Achievement: Under MGNREGS about one lakh forty one thousand households have been
    provided employment till 29th May 2010 and 79 lakh man-days of works have been created. So
    far 13739 no. of total works undertaken, out of these 4244 works have been completed and
    remaining 9495 works are in progress.

                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    For the annual action plan outlay under NREGS of the district the total estimated cost is for the
    year 2012-13 Rs. 10865.80 lakh.

    Constraints: During sensitization programmes for the PRI members and discussion with them
    at Block levels and Gram Panchayats, PRI members raised the questions concerning the
    creation of permanent assets. According to them assets created under NREGS may not be
    lasting for a long period, as the ratio of labour component and materials is 80:20; hence the
    objective of assets creation through NREGS is in question and may not achieved. There has
    been a suggestion for increasing the share of the material component (the ratio would be 60:40)
    so that they can have durable assets in their vicinity under the MGNREGS.

    6.2.3: Integrated Wasteland Development Project (IWDP):

    The scheme is being implemented with a sharing pattern. The Central Share is released by
    Government of India, Ministry of Rural Development directly to DRDA’s. The Government in
    Agriculture Department releases the matching State Share to the DRDAs directly. DRDAs
    release the funds to the PIA and Watershed Committees.

    Objectives: The project aims at generating rural employment and people’s participation in the
    wastelands development programmes at all stages. The major activities included in this project
         Soil and moisture conservation measures like terracing, bunding, trenching, vegetative
           barriers etc.
         Planting and sowing of multi-purpose trees, shrubs, grasses, legumes and pasture land
         Encouraging natural regeneration
         Promotion of agro-forestry and horticulture
         Wood substitution and fuel-wood conservation measures
         Measures needed to disseminate technology
         Training, extension and creation of greater degree of awareness among the participants
         Encouraging people’s participation


    Removal of regional disparities has been emphasized during various plan periods. In fact, intra-
    district disparity has become pronounced due to several factors such as differences in
    endowment of natural resources, creation of infrastructure, occurrence of natural calamities etc.
    To address these issues special area development programmes have been framed. In Ganjam
    district, funds received under BRGF, Tumba Development Agency and the Article 275(1) of the
    constitution are being utilized to remove intra district disparities. The Annual Plan Outlay for the
    district under this sector is Rs. 3843.00 lakh.

    The Backward Regions Grant Fund is designed to redress regional imbalances in development.
    The fund will provide financial resources for supplementing and converging existing
    developmental inflows into 250 identified districts, so as to:

        1. Bridge critical gaps in local infrastructure and other development requirements that are
           not being adequately met through existing inflows
        2. Strengthen Panchayat and Municipality level governance with more appropriate capacity
        3. Facilitate participatory planning, decision making, implementation and monitoring, to
           reflect local felt needs
        4. Provide professional support to local bodies for planning, implementation and monitoring
           of their plans

    Development of irrigation has been accorded prime importance during the 12th Plan. However,
    recently, the approach towards irrigation has undergone a sea-change not only in the district but
    in the state as well. Emphasis is being given on sustainable water resource management
    through watershed development approach and water users’ association. This participatory
    approach will be taken to develop the sector in best possible manner. During this annual plan
    period, multiple approaches will be undertaken to increase both potential creation and utilization
    of irrigation areas.

    Ganjam district has a total cultivable area of 434000 ha. out of which irrigation facility has been
    provided to 247900 ha. This amounts to irrigated facility at above 57% (57.12%) of the total
    cultivable area. On priority basis medium/minor irrigation projects and lift irrigation points will be
    constructed in the district to increase the percentage of irrigation. Irrigation facility is aimed to be
    increased to 75% of cultivable area. This increase of about 18% will be achieved in 12 years @
    of 1.5% per annum by Major/Medium/Minor Irrigation Projects, Lift Irrigation Points, Dug wells
    and through renovation of tanks. The cultivators will be motivated to make crop diversification
    and to make optimum utilization of Irrigation water to increase their income.

    The proposed 12th five year plan for the irrigation & flood control is Rs. 117547.99 lakh
    and proposed annual plan for the year 2012-13 is Rs. 24023.51 lakh.

    6.4: Minor Irrigation

    Minor irrigation covers irrigation projects having ayacut area of 40 to 2000 ha. This Scheme has
    importance due to its characteristics such as low gestation, less investment and quick benefit.
    The minor irrigation projects would contribute substantially in a few blocks of Ganjam such as
    Jagannath Prasad where there are no avenues for Major and Medium projects. The lift irrigation
    part of Minor irrigation was set-up to execute LI projects to create additional irrigation potential
    and handing over the same to the Pani Panchayats for operation and maintenance.

    6.4.1: Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP)

    This scheme was launched by the centre to provide loan assistance to State Governments to
    enhance the pace of irrigation development in the country. The Primary objectives of AIBP
    include acceleration of implementation of ongoing projects and realization of bulk benefits from
    irrigation projects. The projects which have been launched in Ganjam have been treated under
    relaxed norms.


    Among the prime inputs energy has always been a major thrust area as far as infrastructure is
    concerned. This is crucial for the economic development as well as overall well-being of the
    people. Increase in power generation has cascading effects on all sectors leading to increased
    growth in agriculture, industry et al. Generation and supply of energy at affordable prices has
    always remained a great challenge. Both conventional energy and non-conventional sources of
    energy have been of considerable importance to fulfill the growing demands in the district.
    Domestic as well as commercial consumption of energy has increased over the years. Several
    successive plans and schemes have been implemented since last few years.

    The proposed 12th five year plan for the Energy sector is Rs. 120.00 lakh and proposed
    annual plan for the year 2012-13 is Rs. 24.00 lakh.

    The District Industries Centre of Ganjam has come into existence in 1978. Prior to that, there
    were only two medium and large-scale industries and 620 SSI units. After establishment of DIC,
    support and services in various forms are being provided to prospective entrepreneurs for
    establishment of small scale/village and cottage industries. Further, the industrial policy
    resolutions such as of 1980, 1986, 1992 and 1996 declared by the state government have
    provided various incentives to SSI for their sustained growth. 36227 persons have been
    employed through 8580 number of SSI units in Ganjam. The district has three industrial estates
    located at Berhampur, Bhanjnagar and Chatrapur. Developed plots and sheds along with other
    infrastructural facilities like road, drainage, water supply and electricity are being provided by
    IDCO in these areas.

    The proposed 12th five year plan for the industry and minerals is Rs. 19449.96 lakh and
    proposed annual plan for the year 2011-12 is Rs. 3495.24 lakh.

    The objective of the scheme is to impart training in handicrafts as well as carpet weaving in
    different training centers by providing stipend to the trainees, wages to Master Craftsmen, raw
    materials and house rent of the training centers. Annual Plan Outlay 2012-13 for the district is
    Rs. 3429.24lakh.


    Good infrastructure gives an area, zone or district an upper edge for attracting investment and
    mobilization of funds into the district. With the onset of liberalization an efficient transport
    infrastructure has become a necessity to enable the district to be a major player in the domestic
    and international markets through the transfer of goods produced specifically in the district to
    centers where they can be directed towards prospective national and international markets.
    The proposed 12th five year plan for the Transport sector is Rs. 149044.50 lakh and
    proposed annual plan for the year 2012-13 is Rs. 31714.54 lakh.

    6.7: Roads

    Road transportation is a critical infrastructure for growth. It is equally important to reach remote
    areas where access by railways is not always possible. While Railways can create “Jump off”
    point for and to the urban centers, roads whether rural or urban in the district complete the final
    lap to the actual destination points such as villages and other smaller urban hubs. Ganjam in
    particular, plays an important role by linking eleven railways stations and important ports such
    as Gopalpur. Currently Ganjam has 927 km. of important National Highways, State Highways
    and Major District Roads. The composition in terms of percentage of the above three types of
    roads to their total is 23%, 67% and 10% respectively.

    6.7.1: Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)
    Continuous efforts have been carried out by the State and Central Government for rural road
    connectivity over the past years. However, only about 60% of the habitations have some road
    connectivity. The construction of these roads is not of high quality; hence they cannot be
    categorized as all-weather roads. Keeping this in view the Government launched the Pradhan
    Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) on 25th December, 2000 to provide all-weather road
    connectivity to unconnected habitations. It is a 100% Centrally Sponsored Scheme. Fifty
    percent of the Cess on High Speed Diesel (HSD) is earmarked for this Programme. The primary
    objective of the PMGSY is to provide connectivity, by way of all-weather roads (with necessary
    culverts and cross-drainage structures, which is operable throughout the year); to all eligible
    unconnected habitations in rural areas with a population of thousand persons and five hundred
    persons and above in the Tribal (Scheduled V) areas.

    6.8: Forestry, Environment and Ecology.

    The forest area of Ganjam district is 28% of the total Geographical Area. Ganjam has three
    Forest Divisions, out of which Berhampur Forest Division is an important one. The geographical
    area of this division is 3397.49 sq km with a forest area of 696.08 sq.km. It comprises of four
    terminal Ranges. The forest area is distributed primarily in Soroda, Kodala, Khalikote, Tamana,
    Karchutti, Buguda, Tarasingi, Gallery (Bhanjanagar), Dholapita and Durga Prasad blocks and
    regions. The major forest products are Timber, Bamboo, Tamarind, Mahua, Sal, Resin, Kendu-
    leaves, Siali leaves and Karanja Seeds. The Minor Forest Products in the district are nuts and
    berries of different types, barks of different trees and edible roots. Scope exists for the
    processing of raw forest produce that would add value to the finished products. The
    establishment of relevant industrial units and linkage between collection and processing will
    increase employment opportunities. Public-Private partnership with welfare motive is highly
    desirable and forms an integral part of the plan.

    The forest department under its conservation role protects Olive Ridley Sea Turtle in Rushikulya
    Beda, Crocodile in Ghodahada Reservoir and Black Bucks in Khalikote among others. The
    Olive-friendly Sea-turtles reach Rushikulya river, every year for mass nesting. These turtles lay
    eggs on the sea-beach, North of River Rusikulya from Village Purunabandha up to village
    Kantigada covering an area of five kms. Potential exists to increase tourist attraction to watch
    the egg laying spectacle. In the Ghodahada Reservoir 32 Crocodiles have been counted as per
    a survey conducted by DFO, Berhampur. Black bucks are seen publicly in herds in and around
    ten villages of Aska and Buguda Block areas of the district. A total of 528 black bucks have
    been observed in these ten-villages under Khalikote Forest Range. These can add tourism

    The objective of education is to empower people with skills, knowledge and positive attitude in
    order to have respectable sources of livelihood. It aims at reducing illiteracy rate and providing
    sound qualifications that can be put to use in practical field. Skill up-gradation and knowledge
    enhancement is possible through liberal and technical education. Elementary education has
    been the centre of focus since independence. The goal of universalization of elementary
    education has not so far been realized due to the inability to successfully handle local problems
    and identification of the issues and solutions in context to the situation of the district. To address
    various issues on quality education, multi-grade and multi-situation activities need to be
    incorporated in the plan to deal with problems.

    The proposed 12th five year plan for the social services is Rs.                 315125.33 lakh and

    6.10: Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA)

    Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) is one of flagship programmes of Government of India. Its main
    objective is for the achievement of Universalization of Elementary Education (UEE) in a time
    bound manner. SSA is being implemented in partnership with State Governments to cover the
    entire country. The programme seeks to open new schools in those habitations which do not
    have schooling facilities and strengthen existing school infrastructure through provision of
    additional class rooms, toilets, drinking water, maintenance grant and school improvement
    grants. Besides this, schools with inadequate teacher strength are being provided with
    additional teachers; while the capacity of existing teachers is being strengthened by extensive
    training, grants for developing Teaching-Learning Materials (TLM) and strengthening of the
    academic support structure at a cluster, block and district level. SSA seeks to provide quality
    elementary education including life skills. SSA has a special focus on girl's education and
    children with special needs. Recently SSA also included the objective to provide computer
    education to bridge the digital divide.

    National Programme for Education of Girls at Elementary Level (NPEGEL): The NPEGEL
    as an additional component for education of girls especially from the disadvantaged groups.
    This forms a separate and distinct gender component plan of SSA. The scheme is to be
    applicable in blocks where the level of rural female literacy is less than the national average and
    the gender gap is above the national average. The Annual Plan Outlay for the district under this
    scheme is Rs.253.85 lakh.

    Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV): The percentage of dropout and out of reach
    children are more among the SC, ST, OBC and minorities girl children. An attempt has been
    made to bring them into mainstream education through Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya
    (KGBV). Under this SC/ST girl students are imparted education in the Residential schools. This
    would be applicable only in the educationally backward blocks. Annual Plan Outlay for the
    district under KGBV is Rs.556.44 lakh with funding pattern 65:35 ratio between Central and
    State Share.

    Secondary and Higher Education: Secondary Education serves as a bridge between primary
    and higher education, and aims at preparing young persons between the age group of 14-18 to
    face the world as adults and enter further higher education. There are 101944 students in
    Secondary schools in the District with 57% boys and 43% girls studying in 505 secondary
    schools. To accommodate children in schools at secondary level, the district needs more
    secondary level schools at GP level to cater out of reach children. There are 83 colleges in the
    district including 12 colleges for women having 34827 students and 1738 lecturers/readers.

    Health Services
    Health for all cannot be achieved by the health sector alone. Concerted and integrated efforts of
    different sectors like ICDS, PRI, rural water supply and sanitation are equally essential for this
    purpose. Thus there is need for convergence of activities of other sectors with Health. The key


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    to successful implementation of NRHM lies in inter-sectoral convergence. There are 444 Sub-
    Centers in the district to provide health care services to people at village level through the health
    workers; out of which 272 Sub-centers have their own buildings and the rest are functioning in
    rented buildings. For the sub-centers which are being managed in rented buildings, there should
    be provisions of rent. Out of buildings available, around 75% of Sub-centre Building need repair.
    There are 475 Gram Panchayats. The number of Sub-Centers should be equal to G.P. So there
    is a need for new construction of 31 sub-Centers. There are 87 single doctor institutions that
    need repair and renovation. For monitoring and facilitating various health activities are also

    The other requirements to improve the health situation are:

           Construction of 203 sub-Centers in a phased manner over a period of five years
           Repair and renovation of 220 Sub-Centers phase wise giving priority to sub-Centers in
            dilapidated condition
           Repair and renovation of 87 single doctor institutions
           Repair and renovation of District Training Unit (DTU)
           Provision for permanent Water Supply to 272 Sub-Centers
           Repair and maintenance of available 9 vehicles
           Hiring of vehicle for the 20 blocks

    6.10.1: National Rural Health Mission (NRHM)

    NRHM was launched in June 2005 with an aim to provide effective health care to rural people,
    especially among the disadvantaged groups including women and children. Its objectives would
    be achieved by improving access, enabling community ownership and demand for services,
    strengthening public health system for effective service delivery, enhancing equity and
    accountability and promoting decentralization et al.
    The Mission aims to reduce IMR and MMR, provide access to Public Health Services, promote
    Women Health, Child Health, Sanitation and Hygiene, Immunization and Nutrition, prevention
    and control of communicable and non-communicable diseases. To provide integrated and
    comprehensive primary health care, population stabilization, gender and demographic balance
    and promotion of health lifestyle are some other critical areas of NRHM.

    The Annual Plan Outlay for the district under NRHM is Rs. 4216.04 lakh with 85:15 funding ratio
    between Central and State Government.

    6.10.2: HIV/AIDS

    AIDS has emerged as the most devastating Public Health Problem in the district of Ganjam.
    48% of HIV +ve people of Orissa live in Ganjam. Many socio-economic factors contribute to the
    high incidence of HIV. One of the major factors includes the migrants and labourers working in
    towns and cities both inside and outside the district. Extramarital relationship, multiple sex
    partners with STD, HIV/AIDS, no awareness on safe sex practices etc. are have been the main


                          Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    causes of the menace. It is observed that the Blocks where number of migrants are higher,
    there are more HIV +Ve cases. Risky Sexual Behaviors are commonly seen in migrants. About
    85% of migrants at Surat are from Ganjam. NH 5 and NH 217 pass through the district for about
    120 kilometers. that make it more vulnerable to AIDS (as large numbers of truckers pass
    through the NH daily). Truckers and Dhabas indulge in risky and unsafe sexual practices.

    Various surveys among the migrants have shown that the awareness on HIV/AIDS is very poor.
    They live in very unhygienic conditions and usually live without their family. They practice
    unsafe sex and get infected with HIV. Back at home they infect their wives who are silent
    victims. In turn the new born babies are infected with HIV/AIDS. This continues to become a
    vicious cycle. Socio-cultural factors do not allow the women to freely discuss about sex and use
    of condoms even with their husbands. In the recent years many Awareness Programmes have
    been taken up in the district for prevention and control of AIDS. ARUNA, NEC, CARE, GPSS,
    Implementation of T.I. programs in Hinjilicut, Aska, Chikiti, Dengapadar and Bhanjanagar are
    also being carried out. However the performance of T.I. Programmes has not met expectation.
    UNDP has started some initiatives in the field of HIV/AIDS by establishing ICT-Kiosks with the
    help of NGOs in 19 sites including Railway Hospital, Berhampur. Under NRHM, steps need to
    be taken for effective measures for protection and control of AIDS.

    The following objectives and strategies are aimed to reverse the epidemic in the District of
    Ganjam over the next five years; by integration of prevention and treatment programmes:

              Prevention of new infection in the High Risk Groups and Vulnerable population
              Increasing the proportion of people living with HIV/AIDS to receive care and
              Strengthening infrastructure, systems and human resources in prevention and
               treatment programme
              IEC for general population and adolescents
              Comprehensive and Inter-sectoral approach through ZSS
              BCC in High Risks groups and vulnerable population
              Provision of Treatment Facility for RTI/STI at Block level institutions AH/ SDH and
               City Hospital
              Promotion of Use of Condom
              IPC through Health Workers, AWWs, ASHA
              School AIDs and College AIDS programme
              Selection and training of peer educators

    Water Supply and Sanitation

    6.10.7: Accelerated Rural Water Supply Programme (ARWSP)

    This is a centrally Sponsored Plan Programme with a funding pattern of 50:50 ratio between
    State and Centre. Although the matching share of the State Government is exactly meant for
    ARWSP, the central Government releases fund equivalent to the amount spent by the State
    Government. The main objective of ARWSP is to provide potable drinking water by installing
    tube wells, sanitary wells and piped water supply projects in rural areas. The components of the
    programme include Installation of spot sources, rural piped water supply, survey and
    investigation and sustainability, machinery and equipment, regular establishment, building
    programme, MIS and computerization, monitoring and investigation unit, operation and
    maintenance among others. The total outlay under National Rural Drinking Water Programme
    for this sector is Rs 3242.76 lakh.

    6.10.8: Total Sanitation Campaign (TSC)

    The main objectives of the TSC are as under:  

        1   Bring about an improvement in the general quality of life in the rural areas

        2   Accelerate sanitation coverage in rural areas

        3   Generate felt demand for sanitation facilities through awareness creation and health

        4   Cover schools/Anganwadi Centers in rural areas with sanitation facilities and promote
            hygiene education and sanitary habits among students

        5   Encourage cost effective and appropriate technologies in sanitation

        6   Eliminate open defecation to minimize risk of contamination of drinking water sources
            and food

        7   Convert dry latrines to pour flush latrines, and eliminate manual scavenging practice,
            wherever existing in rural areas

    The Annual Plan Outlay for the district under TSC is Rs.2472.72 lakh with 75:25 funding ratio
    between Central and State government.

    Rural Housing

    6.10.9: Indira Awas Yojana

    Under Indira Awas Yojana (IAY) assistance is being provided to BPL rural households including
    SC/ST and the freed bonded laborers for construction of dwelling houses. Under this scheme
    the beneficiaries are selected through Gram Sabha /Palli Sabha. The houses are constructed by
    the beneficiaries themselves. Annual Plan Outlay for the district is Rs.2993.91 lakh with 75:25
    funding ratio between Centre and the State.
    Urban Development

    With rapid growth of the economy urban centers in the district particularly Berhampur
    Municipality is facing constraints in regards to housing, traffic control and encroachments. Since
    rural to urban migration will continue at a faster rate, saturation will set in the Agriculture sector.
    Hence the development of urban bodies has to be taken up with a lot of foresight. Under
    Housing and Urban development Annual Plan outlays of Rs.2600.25 lakh have been made for
    the district.

    Social Security and Social Welfare

    The annual outlay for this sector for the year 2011-12 is Rs.5894.50 lakh.

    6.10.10: National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP)

    The National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP) which came into effect from 15th August,
    1995 represents a significant step towards the fulfillment of the Directive Principles in Article 41
    and 42 of the Constitution. It has introduced a National Policy for Social Assistance benefit to
    poor households in case of old age, death of primary bread-winner and maternity. The
    Programme has the following components, namely:-

    6.10.11: National Old Age Pension Scheme (NOAPS):

    Under this Scheme, Central Assistance is available as per the following criteria:
        Age of the applicant (male or female) is 65 years or more
        The applicant is a 'destitute' in the sense of having little or no regular means of
         subsistence from his/her own sources of income or through financial support from family
         members or other sources

    6.10.12: Madhu Babu Pension Yojana (MBPY):

    Under this scheme pension of Rs.200.00 will be provided to destitute persons both male and

    6.10.13: Development of SCs and STs

    People belonging to SC, ST and OBC categories are at the lowest rung of the social hierarchy
    in Orissa. Even though the Indian constitution has given directives for safeguarding the welfare
    of these groups the situation of these vulnerable groups remains grim in comparison to higher
    caste groups. The current Plan would envisage the addressing of issues of relevance to these
    groups. Ganjam has a Scheduled caste population of 586798 and a scheduled tribe population
    of 90919. These groups account for 18.57% and 2.88% of the total population respectively. The
    broad objectives of the plan are to improve the condition of the above underprivileged groups.
    This would focus on improving the socio-economic condition and reducing poverty, bringing
    these communities into the mainstream of the social setup, development of critical
    infrastructure, communication, education, health, housing, provision of basic minimum services,
    protecting them from social discrimination and protecting their livelihood rights over forests and

    The Schemes Operating under State Plan for Scheduled Tribes include:

           Pre-Matric Scholarship to Scheduled Tribe Students-With a view to promote primary and
            secondary education among the tribal children and increasing enrolment, special
            hostels for Tribal children have been established. Along with this Pre-Matric scholarship
            are paid to boys and girls pursuing their studies from class I to X in schools/hostels for
            10 months in a year. Annual Outlay for Pre-Matric Scholarship is Rs.173.07 lakh.
           The Government has also taken initiatives through schemes such as Supply of
            Nationalized Text Books to SCs and STs with an Annual outlay for the district being 0.18
           The other initiatives include Writing Materials for ST students, Construction, Renovation
            and Reconstruction of Educational Institutions and Special Adivasi Hostels, Pre-
            examination Training of Scheduled Tribe Candidates for Recruitment into Armed Forces
            and CPMF and Rehabilitation and Legal Aid to ST Victims of Atrocities
           The Annual Plan Outlay for the district for SC & ST and OBC development is Rs.3425.05

    Basically the Schedule Tribes area is characterized by rich endowment of hilly forest and natural
    resources, which are mostly inaccessible and isolated. Majority of their food and livelihood
    security is dependent upon shifting cultivation, wage earning and collection of minor forest
    produce. Tribal population of the district is mostly affected by the process of rapid urbanization
    and forest denudation as a result they are deprived of their natural endowment and sustainable
    source of livelihood. They are generally in a state of social, educational and economic

    Tribal Sub-Plan focuses on comprehensive and holistic views of tribal problems to bring down
    the gap of socio-economic development between tribal and non-tribals. This is oriented towards
    household income generating schemes in the field of agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry,
    fishery, goat keeping, poultry etc. Elimination of exploitation, development of human resources
    through education, health and training programme are the main focus of the plan.

    7.1: Demographic Profile

    In Ganjam, Scheduled Tribes comprises 2.88% of the total population of the district. Out of the
    total Schedule Tribe population of the district, 87311(96.03%) resides in rural areas and only a
    small fraction of 3608 (3.97%) reside in urban areas (table 7.1).

    Out of total ST population more than 29% STs found both in Patrapur and Surada blocks.
    Patrapur and Surada blocks predominated by ‘Saura’ tribes. Bisides ‘Saura’, ‘Kandha’ tribe are
    also found in the district. Tubma Development Agency (TDA) is working in the 58 villages of
    Patrapur block. For the conservation and development of Saura tribes, TDA is providing support
    in Tumba areas in the field of education, health, livelihood, infrastructure etc.

    7.2: Education

    There are 42 schools in the Tribal area of the district under SC & ST development department
    as per Annual Work Plan, SSA, Ganjam. The rate of literacy among STs is 35.54% against the
    overall district literacy rate of 60.77% as per 2001 Census. The overall tribal male and female
    literacy rates are 50.22% and 20.65% respectively (table 7.2). The tribal female literacy is
    comparatively lesser than the district female literacy of 46.44%, which needs attention. The
    overall gender disparity index for literacy is 1.43, in respect of rural areas it is 1.57. While
    compare with district as well as rural gender disparity among STs, the gender disparity in urban
    area is in better position (0.33). The district and the state administration have taken this into
    consideration and initiated actions reduce disparity by emphasizing more on girls’ education.

    7.3 Landholding Patterns

    The land holding pattern among Scheduled Tribes (STs) in Ganjam district is highly skewed.
    Among all categories the ST marginalized community has least share in land. Large numbers of
    household have small holdings. They are not in a position to heavily rely on farming as a
    principal livelihood option. They have slowly but steadily shifted to the category of other
    workers. More than 56% and nearly 29% belongs to marginal and small category with an
    average holding size 0.48 ha and 1.39 ha respectively. Overall average holding size for ST is
    1.15 ha in the district against the state average of 1.33% (table 7.3).

    It is observed from the table above that gender disparity is lower where literacy rate of female is
    high. Overall gender disparity index for literacy in rural areas is 1.38 and in respect of urban
    area it is 0.64. For the district as a whole (rural+urban), the disparity is 1.24. The district and the
    state administration have taken this into consideration and initiated actions to reduce disparity
    by emphasizing more on girls’ education.

    8.3 Landholding Patterns

    The land holding pattern among Scheduled Castes (SCs) in Ganjam district is highly skewed.
    Among all categories the SC marginalized community has least share in land. Large numbers of
    household have small holdings of land. They are not in a position to heavily rely on farming as a
    principal livelihood option. They have slowly but steadily shifted to the category of other
    workers. In Scheduled Caste group more than 74% belong to marginal category with average
    holding size of 0.40 ha. More than 18% belongs to small category with 1.35 ha average holding
    size (table 8.3). Overall average holding size for SC group is 0.76 ha.

    8.4: Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan (SCSP) Approach

    Schedule Caste Sub-Plan approach for the development of the Schedule Caste has been
    adopted in the district from the beginning of the Sixth Five Year Plan. It is a strategic policy to
    secure overall development of SCs and to remove socio-economic disparities between the
    people belonging to this community and others in the society. The SCSP is formulated by
    coordinating the different sectoral plans; ensure adequate flow of funds directly for the benefit of
    SC people. This is oriented towards household income generating schemes in the field of
    agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, fishery, goat rearing, poultry, etc. Elimination of
    exploitation, human resource development through education, health and training programme
    and special emphasis to women empowerment are aims of the plan.

    8.5: Thrust Areas

    The people of the Schedule Caste community are relatively poor and substantial part of this
    community is engaged in scavenging and un-clean occupations. This community has a low
    female literacy rate and dropout rate among the girl children is very high. The major thrust under
    SCSP is to provide these poor people access to resources and enhance their employment
    opportunities through need based composite programs like weaving, leather work, fishery, and
    wage employment etc. with emphasis on the supply of raw materials, developing market
    linkages for their products, skill up-gradation in vocations and introduction of modern

    Objectives of SCSP

           Socio-economic development of SC and their inhabitation
           Protection of SC from exploitation of higher caste
           Encouraging the SC community to integrate them in mainstream of society
           Providing free education, health, housing and livelihood promotion
           Providing basic minimum services to enhance the quality of life
           Empowerment through effective legislative and regulatory measures
           Develop communication and sustainable common infrastructure development for SC

           Education being the most effective tool for empowering SC has been given high priority.
            This can be achieved through:
                  1. Establishment of new residential schools and hostels for tribals


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

                   2. Provision for good quality food in MDM, provision for writing and reading
                       materials and extra classes for slow learners. Bridge courses for dropouts.
                       Provide scholarship to increase enrollment and retention of the SC children.
                       Beside this special campaign for enrollment in tribal pockets
            Women development and empowerment is another instrument to achieve socio-
             economical development rapidly
               1. Formation of new SHGs and ensuring all SC women to become a member of a
               2. Strengthening and capacity building of SHG through training on various micro
                   enterprises such as weaving, leather work, sericulture and other income generating
                   activities considering the aptitude of local SC and feasibility in respective area
            Adequate training and supervision to beneficiaries in all individual benefit oriented
             programme like SGSY and its industrial promotion opportunities
            SHGs and PRIs are being strengthened under amended money lending regulations to
             enable the community to protect the individual from exploitation by money lenders.
             Special campaigns are being set up for saving schemes
            Check and curb enforcement of land transfer from SC to non SC and even from SC
             having marginal and small land holdings to other SC having larger land holdings
            Awareness and rehabilitation programme for SC alcoholics. Establishment of Alcohol
             Addict Rehab centers and Counseling Centers at block level
            Strengthen capacity building of SHGs, PRIs, and regulated markets to prevent distress
             sale of their products. Training for value addition to products
            Integrated Awareness Campaign through IEC about various development programme,
             health, nutrition, sanitation, hygiene, importance of child care and education. Awareness
             about savings and reducing evil consequences of alcoholism and dogmatism have been
             given equal importance
            Ensure proper implementation of employment generation schemes viz.; NREGS, BRGF,
             SGSY, IWDP, IAY and Cluster Micro Project

    8.5: Schemes for Scheduled Castes

    A number of schemes under SCSP are currently running in the district. Employment generation
    schemes such as NREGS, BRGF, SGSY, IWDP, IAY and Cluster Micro Project are being
    implemented in the district. For the agricultural development schemes like RKVY and AIBP are

    The district has been identified as the backward district of Orissa henceforth was made eligible
    to BRGF funds. Previously the district was covered under RSVY and it moved from RSVY to
    BRGF in 2007-08. The district has received Rs. 22.85 crores under BRGF during 2007-08, Rs.
    15.41 crores during 2008-09, Rs. 14.98 crores during 2009-10 and Rs. 22.85 crores during the
    year 2010-11. The district had the entitlement for the plan year (2011-12) is 2285 Lakhs and
    plan proposed for the year 2012-2013 is Rs.38.18 crore. The planning proposal has been
    inflated 150% to cover the previous years spillover projects. Total BRGF fund is allocated to
    urban and rural bodies in ratio of 32.62:67.38. The 67.38 percent share of the funds of rural

    Dovetailing of BRGF fund for Distribution Transformer Systems.

    The proposal of the Chief Secretary, Odisha received vide his L. No. 12808 (30) Dt.31.10.2011
    for dovetailing of Rs. 4.00 crore from the BRGF fund for each of the years 2011-12 and 2012-13
    for replacement of burnt transformers, supplementation of additional transformers, reconducting
    of 33 KV/11KV lines and installation of equipments like theft proof energy meters etc was placed
    before the Committee for discussion and decision. The committee was also apprised of the
    advisory issued by the Commissioner-cum-Secretary to Govt. in P.R. Department, Odisha to
    obtain the approval of the DPC on suitable modification of the approved Action Plan of BRGF,
    2011-12 and the proposal of dovetailing of Rs.4.00 crore from the BRGF, 2012-13 for the above
    purpose. The committee discussed the issue and felt the need of supplementing BRGF fund for
    Distribution Transformer Systems. But the Committee did not agree for dovetailing the BRGF
    fund, 2011-12 for the purpose due to the reason that works from the Action Plan already
    approved have commenced and modification of that list would not be possible However, a
    consensus was arrived at for dovetailing of Rs. 4.00 crore out of the BRGF, 2012-13 for
    Distribution Transformer Systems. The Committee approved these decisions.

    The Committee was apprised of the entitlement of the district under BRGF for 2012-13 and the
    size of the fund for which the Action Plan need be approved as per the following distribution.

    In view of the approval of the Committee for dovetailing of flat Rs. 4.00 crore of BRGF fund,
    2012-13 for the Distribution Transformer Systems, need for short sizing of the Action Plans of
    the Local Bodies so far decided by them was discussed. But the Committee after deliberation
    viewed that the Action plans have been prepared with the list of projects for 150% of the entitled
    amount in a prioritised manner. The funds will be released as would be received from the Govt.
    of India and accordingly the projects would be taken up as per the instruction to be issued by
    the PD, DRDA, Accordingly the local bodies would take up the projects for execution from the
    priority list. Since Rs. 4.00 crore was decided to be allotted for Distribution Transformer
    systems, the committee was apprised that proportionate curtailing of funds from the funds to be
    earmarked as per distribution formula being adopted would be resorted to. The committee
    however decided to approve Annual Plan, 2012-13 under BRGF of the district as received for
    the amount as mentioned as per the above noted distribution, particulars.



    As per the instruction of State Government, the Annual BRGF Plan of each district is prepared
    150% more than the actual entitlement and the projects are taken up on priority basis. Details
    about the number of block-wise projects proposed to be taken up during 2012-13 and estimated

                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 


                                        GENDER S UB PL AN


    Women constitute 49.94% of the total population of the district and the sex ratio is 998 females
    for 1000 males. The successive annual and five-year plan periods consistently and incessantly
    attempted to emphasize to bring women on par with men in socio-economic and political
    arenas. Therefore, the objective behind the series of schemes is to empower women and their
    children to become self-reliant and independent. The Integrated plan envisages a position of
    empowered women in the district along with a high quality of life for their children.

    Ensure Gender Equality:
    Currently the Gender Ratio in Ganjam is 998. But this figure is affected to an extent by male out-
    migration. A better measure in terms of gender ratio is of the 0-6 year age group which is 928.
    The district should aim to increase this to 960 by 2015. Sex determination test through
    ultrasound and amniocentesis techniques should be prohibited.

    Women Participation:

           Better participation in decision making process at all level
           The female literacy level of the district is 47.70%. Once the education level and earning
            of the women folk is developed, they can better participate in the decision making not
            only in their households but in the society at large. Total literacy along with some
            financial support can go a long way in this regard
           Effective functioning of Women SHGs and income generation. To make SHGs more
            efficient, the members of the WSHGs should be given trainings. The capacity building of
            the SHGs can be achieved by exposure visit to other successful SHGs of the state as
            well as national NGOs

    Empowerment of Women:

    Women Empowerment: Women empowerment is a challenging task as gender based
    discrimination is a deep rooted social malice practiced in India since thousands of years.
    Formulating laws and policies are not enough for measurable improvement as the ground
    situation remains unchanged. Emphasizing the malice of gender discrimination and women
    empowerment in India is a long battle against powerful structural forces of the society which are
    against women's growth and development. This can be substantially controlled by focusing on


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    changing the social attitude and practices prevalent in the society. This would be initiated by
    working with women at the grassroots level and focusing on increasing women's access and
    control over resources and increasing their control over decision making. There are many
    programmes that are currently running to strengthen their political, social and financial condition.

    Mission Shakti is a self help mission which aims at empowering women through formation and
    promotion of one lakh SHGs over a period of four years from 8th March 2001. The target was
    further revised to 2 lakh Women SHGs and the time was extended to March 2008. Mission
    Shakti has made efforts to train SHGs in many non-traditional crafts for women, like Masonry,
    Pisciculture, Phenyle making, Agarbati making as well as Bookbinding and Badi and Papad

    Progress of DMASS in the district-

    To meet the problems of rural women, Ganjam district administration conceptualized the idea of
    formation of Women Self Help Groups in each and every village of Ganjam district during the
    year 1998-99 and expanded it to the Block level through the “Mahila Sanchayika Sangha”
    (MASS) or (B-MASS). All the Block MASS, at district level forms the District MASS or D-MASS,
    which is registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. SHGs are formed in each village
    through a house hold survey. A group of women consisting of 10 to 20 members of a locality
    form the SHG on the basis of thrift & credit. The business rules, principles, terms & conditions
    for lending are framed & governed by the group members themselves. The group is not formally
    registered. The activities undertaken by the SHGs are Pisciculture, Floriculture, Banana
    cultivation. Mushroom cultivation, Spices making, Pottery, Candle making, Stone cutting, Khalli
    stitching, Agarbati making, Handloom Sarees, Bamboo product making, Kweda flower business,
    Broom making etc.The basic principle of Self Help Groups is of mutual help & savings. The
    SHGs linkage to Banks for economical requirements is essential. The Mahila Sanchayika
    Sangha(MASS) at village level tries to meet the economical & financial needs of the groups,
    while B-MASS will provide financial assistance to these SHGs through Banks. Presently there
    are total 17,431 number of SHGs are formed in the district, covering 2,17,661 members of
    which 15,808 SHGs are enrolled in MASS and total members enrolled in MASS is 1,91,977.
    The total savings of all the SHGs in the district is Rs 3226.67 Lakhs and the total savings of all
    the MASS is Rs 274.88 Lakhs. It is very difficult to get a first hand information about the SHGs,
    their financial status, their product items and marketing strategies. At Govt. level also it is
    difficult to review different activities of SHGs. There is no scope to interact among themselves.
    Marketing of their products becames very difficult, occurs through only physical contact or
    brokers leading to loss & wastage.

    14.1 Need and Benefits of Convergence of Resources:

    Convergence brings synergy between different government programmes and /or schemes in
    term of their planning, process and implementation. Convergence is understood as “Optimum
    use of available resources for common outcome”. There has been lot of debates as to how
    convergence can happen and how to grow up to a level from the so called scattered and
    sporadic models to widespread application over a bigger geographical area in terms of
    convergence among all possible flagship schemes and government departments.
    It is expected that in the coming years, convergence is likely to gain further momentum due to
    its beneficial dimensions. When demand and supply situation align to each other, it would be
    obvious that many departments will be interested for convergence for a higher output. This will
    enable them to realise significant benefits and enhance the development impact. For this to
    happen, however, it is essential that the policy and convergence frameworks allow different
    schemes to function in a collaborative manner rather than competing with each other or with a
    standalone approach. If policy frameworks restrict or stop convergence, that may lead to sub-
    optimal outcomes and reduced development impact. By minimizing the policy constraints,
    people can have increased access to advanced technologies, innovations and high-quality
    services by removing convergence barriers, if any such barrier prevails. So, an enabling policy
    environment for convergence is highly essential.

    It is commonly believed that convergence can benefit development and support to create an
    environment that actively promotes innovations and supportive service provision. Enabling
    policy environment allow service providers to evolve different strategies to render quality
    services at people’s doorstep with the introduction of new service types or revamping the
    existing ones based on the demand. Policy that promotes convergence will accelerate growth
    and innovation. This reduces inconsistencies and artificial barriers, cuts risks and costs, and
    creates a better environment for different sectors / sub-sectors to grow. Further, users of
    services gets benefit from increased access to available convergent based services.

    In order to create an enabling environment, different departments are to be involved, may be at
    different levels or under a common platform. Government can think of amending existing policy,
    if any, to address convergence and remove barriers and restrictions. A policy response to
    convergence will resolve some of the conflicting rules among converging departments /
    schemes and can create a ground for all the players to converge their strengthens and minimize
    their weaknesses focusing on the development of people and meeting their aspirations. Such
    policy prescriptions can provide a significant push during the early stages of convergence.


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    Convergence seems to be the order of the day and a development requirement to expand the
    outreach with quality of services that have higher impact at people’s end. From people’s
    perspective, they can avail different services under one roof that are essential for their growth.
    Undoubtedly, convergence is having significant potential benefit dimension if it is structured
    properly and supported with policy measures. As such, a policymaker’s role is to respond to the
    prevailing changes and taking steps to in Ganjam, the UN team has strived hard on
    convergence among NREGS and Watershed projects in the district as a first step in this regard.

    14.1.1 Experience of the district in piloting convergence:

    As the UN team had ample opportunity to interact with the ex-PD, DRDA Mr. R.Vineel Krishna,
    IAS, the issue of convergence came up and appreciated by the Mr. Krishna also. But the
    thought could really got momentum as the Ministry of PR circulated a proposal with guidelines
    for possible convergence among NREGS, Watershed and SGSY. The guidelines also stressed
    for convergence among other schemes with NREGS as the same being a demand driven
    scheme and the higher the demand generated, the greater amount of resources can be
    mobilized to the district.

    14.1.2 Tangible benefits of Convergence (NREGS+Watershed):

    There are many benefits of this convergence model. Such as a) each individual scheme is
    strengthened in terms of performance, as NREGS can end up with generation of more man-
    days & Watershed with more resources b) NREGS being a demand driven scheme, more
    resources can be mobilized to the district, c) better quality structures can be ensured under
    watersheds which can be good asset for the community, as for example if a Water harvesting
    structure is well built with additional resource, the benefit of the same can be realized for a
    longer period by the community, d)greater cooperation among the individual scheme
    implementers and ultimately better service delivery, e)maximum benefit to the community.

    14.1.3 Horizontal and Vertical convergence:

    NREGS & SGSY Convergence model:

    Convergence can be horizontal and vertical.

    In the case of first one, linking up of schemes and programs having common agenda thereby
    utilizing the common resource available to ensure optimum use of resources can be done. In
    the second instance, the end product produced by one of the scheme can be taken up by the
    other scheme for value addition under its agenda and the utility of the product can be multiplied.
    The NREGS and Watershed model can be an example of horizontal convergence while
    the NREGS and SGSY is an example of vertical convergence in which after digging the
    pond, the value addition part is done by the other scheme.

    14.3 Intersectoral convergence:

    14.3.1 Inter sectoral strategy for creation of durable and productive assets:
        From mere wage employment to sustainable rural livelihoods
        From unskilled to skilled labour through knowledge & technology input, training &
            capacity building in productivity increases, water-use efficiency, backward–forward

                 Significant productivity increases could be stimulated by NREGA on holdings of small
                  and marginal farmers in rainfed areas

            14.3.2 Parameter for Convergence:
                A process that brings together on-going schemes
                Guidelines are a broad facilitating framework
                Parameters of NREG Act and Guidelines as well as the guidelines of the other
                   development Schemes with which convergence is attempted are not altered.
                Convergence is expected to create value addition through resource and activity
                   synergies as well as infusion of technology input and professional quality in planning
                   and implementation
                Joint monitoring of Convergence
                Convergence at planning, management and works level

    high priority for the district. The requirement based on the proposals received from different
    levels which can be met from different flagship programmes. The total gap of resources for the
    year 2012-13 can be adjusted and narrowed down from programmes like BRGF,
    NREGS,RGGBY, BGJY, PMGSY and other Flagship programmes. With the availability of
    additional resources the gap pipeline would be converged.

    13.0 Introduction

    Democracy has been hailed as the true and authentic voice of people, working for both their
    tangible and intangible interests. In a meaningful democracy, political stability and working
    within the conventional framework of law and ethics are the two most desired virtues. People
    across continents have long cherished the dream of living under healthy governance, which has
    led to their reaffirming the mandate for constitutionally approved governments irrespective of
    their efficiency levels or experience. Sometimes there is a limit to all that people can brook.
    Their faith in legal system fails them, the popular government becomes a toy in the hands of
    industrial bourgeoisie and capitalist entrepreneurs, they lose the power to govern even the
    aspects of their own lives and there is a sense of simmering anarchy. This is not a passing
    mood- it has been born out of a strong sense of being wronged and alienated amidst their land
    and property.

    The year was 1967. The place, Naxalbari. The young and fiery ideologies of the Marxist-Leninist
    movement in India formed the CPI(M-L), envisioning a spontaneous mass upsurge all over India
    that would create a 'liberated zone'. The Naxalite movement was born. Odisha has felt the
    nerves of naxal movement since 1968. But in the last twenty years or so the state has
    witnessed a strong naxalite movement. Earlier, it was Peoples' War Group (PWG) that was a
    dominant force in different parts with Maoist Communist Party (MCC) playing a lesser role in the
    progress of the movement. PWG was very influential in Gajapati, Ganjam, Koraput, Malkangiri,
    Nabarangapur and Rayagada districts.

    13.1 LWE its causes

    Several reasons are responsible for growth and expansion of naxalism in Ganjam but the single
    most reason is poverty. It is generally viewed that such a volatile phase of naxalism in the
    district is basically a product of the continuous process of underdevelopment. The other parts of
    Odisha which has otherwise been rich in minerals, and other natural resources the poverty is at
    large scale there. According to the Planning Commission and Census reports Odisha is the
    poorest state in India, with about 48% of its population below poverty line. This means that
    approximately 17-28 million people in the state itself are officially living under BPL category. The
    area with larger population under BPL and the areas under greater influence of the naxalites
    corroborate each other.Some of the reasons are summarized as below-


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    Transferring tribal land

    Odisha's quest for development has caused apart from other things, the commercialization of
    forest resources, thereby reducing the traditional right and access of the tribal inhabitants to the
    forested areas, which are still considered as their original homes of the tribal people. Moreover,
    the transfer of tribal land to the non-tribal people despite several legal strictures continues

    Commercialization of agriculture

    With the commercialization of agriculture, economic disparities widened. This polarized the
    agrarian classes and created an environment of confrontation.

    Social Iniquity and Exploitation

    The oppressed classes were not only exploited as sharecroppers and landless labourers by the
    landlords they also fell prey to money lenders. The groups constituting the sharecroppers and
    the landless laborers wanted a new social order with equity and the landed classes wanted to
    retain the prestige and status that was associated with the zamindars under the old system .
    Also, in India, since there wasn't any distinction between class and caste relationships at that
    time, class conflict was manifested as caste conflict. The manifestations of the caste struggle as
    part of the Naxal movement is region specific17. In Srikakulam, a government sponsored study
    noted that “Chronic poverty and destitution have become the patterns of tribal life”.

    Alienation of Forest Land

    Alienation of Tribal land was a major issue that crippled their economic welfare. This was
    evident in good measure in the Srikakulam Naxal movement.By the time of the uprising only
    one third of the tribals owned land . Alienation happened largely because of the money-lenders'
    trap but also because of the government's restrictions of access to forest land, traditionally the
    exclusive domain of the tribals. In implementing government regulations on forest access,
    government officials resorted to harassment of the tribals. Loss of access to forest produce
    which had constituted a significant part of their income and was also an integral part of their way
    of life, led to deep discontentment among the tribes. The people who were most affected by the
    status quo, therefore, were the fuel for the Naxalist fire.

        Tribals and Agricultural Laborers

    The policies of the state disturbed the equilibrium in tribal society. Their social structure was
    also more conducive to mass mobilization. This polarized the agrarian classes and created an
    environment of confrontation.They were the hardest hit by the agricultural commercialization
    and the government's forest policy. They also bore the brunt of social oppression. Their
    egalitarian social organization was very conducive to mass mobilization. The landless
    everywhere share the same woes. The Naxal cadres also hailed from the classes of agricultural
    workers, sharecroppers and tenants.


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    So, there has been a readymade resentment among the tribal populace and it could easily
    serve as a fertile ground for popularization of any anti-government or anti-mainstream ideology.
    The naxalites have realized this quite clearly and so they have been able to establish a good
    ground level support base in these areas. A central Naxalite agenda also includes tribal self-
    determination, which is, asserting the rights of the tribals over local resources.

     The government has several tribal development programmes aimed at overall progress of the
    people and the regions. But, it seems that all these programmes collectively have created an
    elite among the tribal population itself, leading to increased resentment among the tribals. The
    problem has been compounded by the massive out-migration due to increased poverty and
    income gap in the tribal society.

    13.2 Situation Analysis and strategies

    It is not as if government has not tried to sort out the problem but the lacunae are that these
    efforts were not well directed, that is why all the government efforts have failed to produce the
    desired results. The Naxal stronghold blocks or region where a number of special programmes
    are in operation but poverty refuses to subside.

    The development strategy of the government has t been a success story by popular measure.
    Though, many small industries were established and irrigation projects were laid down, the local
    population is still among the poorest ones. And, the reality of the well thought out development
    strategy in resettlement operations owing to construction of industry and irrigation project sites
    in Ganjam resulted in the majority of inhabitants ending up with lower incomes, less land than
    before, less work opportunities, inferior housing, less access to the resources of the commons
    such as fuel-wood and fodder; and worse nutrition and physical and mental health.

    Like everywhere else the Naxal movement has survived and sustained itself in Ganjam because
    it revolves around the life of marginalized people. The naxals have shown the poor people a
    dream of a society based on equality. Taking advantage of the acute poverty and rampant
    corruption in these remote corners of the district, the Naxals have shown them the dream of a
    revolution. It is high time that the government realizes that the Naxals have come to represent a
    serious internal security problem.

    13.3 Present status and degree of naxal hazard-

    The naxal intrusion in the district has spread in different interior regions and as per the data
    available in the district administration there is differential naxal impact and differential pattern of
    response. The number of blocks likely to be affected is 9 with correspondingly 51 GPs and 92
    villages. There are 9 Blocks, 46 GPs ,404 Villages already affected by naxals. The detail list of
    the affected, likely to be affected and vulnerable blocks, GPs and villages are annexed as

    13.4 Strategies for strengthening security measures.

    The state government has emphasized on the modernization of State Police force and
    accordingly funds are given to the district under the Police Modernization Scheme to modernize
    their police forces in terms of modern weaponry, latest communication equipment, mobility and


                           Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

    other infrastructure. The naxal-affected blocks have also been asked to identify vulnerable
    police stations and outposts in the naxal areas and take up their fortification under the Scheme.

    The Security Related Expenditure (SRE) Scheme of February 2005 has been revised. The level
    of reimbursement under the Scheme has been raised from 50% to 100% and new items like
    insurance scheme for police personnel, community policing, rehabilitation of surrendered
    naxalites, expenditure incurred on publicity to counter propaganda of naxalites, other security
    related items not covered under the Police Modernization Scheme etc., have been covered. The
    Scheme also allows release of funds to the naxal-affected districts as advance. In order to
    supplement the efforts of the district in providing an effective response to the naxal violence,
    Central Para Military Forces have been deployed on a long-term basis.


                            Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 


                             COMPONENTS SPECIFIC TO LWE POCKETS

    14.1 Combating LWE through components specific approach

    The government has revised the recruitment guidelines to divert the youth from the naxal-
    affected areas to get into government jobs. Now, it has been permitted that 40% of the total
    recruitment in the Central Para Military Force (CRPF) can be taken up from the naxal or
    militancy affected areas.

    Another important measure of the government is related to the backward district development.
    The Central Government has provided financial assistance for 55 naxal affected districts in the 9
    States of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Madhya
    Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh & West Bengal under the Backward Districts Initiative (BDI) component
    of the Rsahtriya Sam Vikas Yojana (RSVY).

    The government has requested the Planning Commission to include other naxal affected areas
    under their proposed Scheme of Backward Regions Grant Funds (BRGF).

    The naxal problem has a very deep connection with the tribal and forested areas as even today
    the main base of the naxal movement comes from these places only. In order to address the
    areas of disaffection among the tribals, the government is making efforts on the legislation front
    also and the recognizing the right of the forest dwellers on the forest produces is an attempt to
    win over the tribals against the naxalites.

    Since their beginning the naxal groups have been raising land and livelihood related issues
    mainly. So the central government now is pushing the states to carry the land reforms as fast as
    possible. But land reforms in India has not been a political issue only rather a social and
    prestige issue also, so, it always seems difficult for the state governments to carry out any such
    legislative measures for the fear of losing vital middle class' support. The States have also been
    asked to put greater attention on creating employment opportunities in the naxal affected areas
    with special focus on creation of physical infrastructure in terms of roads, communication, power
    as also social infrastructure such as schools, hospitals etc.

    To do all this strategy of the government right now emphasizes on:

           To strengthen intelligence set-up at the state level;

           To pursue effective and sustained intelligence driven police action against naxalites and
            their infrastructure individually and jointly by the states


                              Comprehensive District Plan 2012-13, Ganjam District 

              To accelerate development in the naxal affected areas.

    14.2 Social protection, Good governance and convergence

    The government has introduced a bill in the parliament for safeguarding the land rights of the
    locals in the tribal areas is a good move. Similarly the extension of the Panchayati Raj
    programmes to tribal areas by giving greater power to the tribal village assembly is a modest
    measure in the right direction, but unless structural deformities are addressed in proper manner
    and the measures are undertaken to restore rights over land and forest, there is every possibility
    that the Panchayati Raj structures would continue to be manipulated by local elites. And, with
    this there remains every single chance of disaffection among the rural and tribal populace,
    which would keep naxalism alive in India. Proper and successful implementation of welfare
    schemes like MGNREGA, PMGSY, IAY would be able to build a new relation between the
    government and tribal people.
