  • 1. Prime Minister's Employment Generation Programme, India
    MBA HR 2010-12
  • 2. Introduction
    There was a good news to unemployed people because MSME (Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) proposed a credit linked subsidy program named PMEGP (Prime Minister's Employment Generation Programme).
    The government of India introduced this on August 15, 2008 by merging two schemes called REGP (Rural Employment Generation Programme) and PMRY (Prime Minister's RojgarYojana).
  • 3. Objectives of the Programme
    PMEGP was launched to generate employment opportunities by establishing micro enterprises in urban as well as in rural areas. Here are the objectives of this program:
    Increase artisans’ wage earning capacity and contribute to raise the growth rate of urban and rural employment.
    Provide sustainable and continuous employment to a huge portion of prospective and traditional artisans as well as urban and rural unemployed youth to help arrest rural youth to urban areas migration.
  • 4. Objectives (conti...)
    To bring widely dispersed traditional artisans/urban and rural unemployed youth together in order to give them opportunities for self-employment.
    To generate employment opportunities for both urban and rural country areas by setting up new self-employment micro enterprises/projects/ventures.
  • 5. Nature of Financial Assistance
    The approval of this proposal came from Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs. The subsidy levels or cost limit of units or projects that could be established was extended to the rural areas as well. To ensure inclusive growth, higher subsidy levels are given to those beneficiaries that belong to marginalized society sections like Schedule Tribes, Schedule Castes, Women, Minorities, Other Backward Classes, Physically Handicapped, etc.
  • 6. Eligibility of Beneficiaries
    Here is a list of eligibility conditions for those who want to be beneficiaries of this program:
    Any individual as long as he or she is 18 years old and above.
    For setting up PMEGP projects, no income ceiling is required for assistance.
    Beneficiaries should have a standard pass educational qualification at least for setting up project in the manufacturing section costing over Rs.10 lakh and in the service/business sector above Rs. 5 lakh.
    Only new projects specifically sanctioned under PMEGP is available for assistance under the scheme.
  • 7. Eligibility of Ben. (conti...)
    Self Help Groups that have not availed of any benefit from other schemes are also eligible for this assistance.
    Charitable Trusts
    Production Co-operative Societies
    Institutions registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860
    Those existing units (under REGP, PMRY, or other schemes under State  Government or Government of India) as well as those units that have previously availed any Government Subsidy are not eligible here.
  • 8. Implementing Agencies
    This scheme will be implemented through KVIC (Khadi and Village Industries Commission), Mumbai – this is a statutory body that’s created by KVIC Act 1956 with a single nodal agency at national level. The scheme is implemented through District Industries Centres, KVIBs (Khadi and Village Industry Boards), and State Directorates of KVIC in rural areas.
    On the other hand, urban areas implementation will be in coordination with DICs (State District Industries Centres) only. As of today, KVIC is coordinating with State DICs/State KVIBs to monitor performance in urban and rural areas. To identify beneficiaries under PMEGP, DICs and KVIC will also involve UdyamiMitras empanelled under RGUMY (Rajiv Gandhi UdyamiMitraYojana), NSIC, Panchayati Raj Institutions and other reputable NGOs (Non-Government Organizations).
