GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF PERSPECTIVE PLAN NATIONAL FOOD FOR WORK PROGRAMME (NFFWP) TRAINING OF TRAINERS Dr. N. Sai Bhaskar Reddy AMR-APARD, RAJENDRANAGAR, HYDERABAD
Objective - comprehensive perspective plan of five years That would enable develop all the Panchayats of the 150 most backward districts during the 5 years period of 2005-2010 in such a way that there is visible impact on the major problems of each Panchayat and a sound base is created for self sustaining economy to remove poverty and bring these Districts at least at par with other developed areas of the state and the country.
It will facilitate optimizing all resources available under all the developmental programmes operational at the panchayat level To provide best possible and meaningful option for convergence/dovetailing of all such programmes to derive maximum benefit in favour of the rural poor especially 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.
Preparing the Perspective Plan Survey each village and panchayat in the district to collect data on A. Existing economy infrastructure needs and to B. Assess feasibility of projects to be included in the plan Rough cost estimate for project/works suggested must be given based on acceptable parameters and they may be indicated in the plan document.
The people involved in perspectiveplan preparation Consolidation and preparation of final document – AMR-APARD Training of trainers at District level (~40 officers) – AMR-APARD TOTs – Senior Level Officers / special officers in the District Training of Mandal level resource persons – ToTs Perspective plan preparation of each village with the participation of primary stakeholders and facilitation by Mandal level resource persons.
PERSPECTIVE PLAN OF THE DISTRICTThe perspective plan will be a comprehensive document withseveral chaptersCHAPTER-1The information for the district as a whole on -demography - SC/ST, women and children population withwork force divided into employed, semi-employed,unemployed, occupational distribution,month wise rainfall distribution,depth of water table, depletion rate,gender-wise illiteracy,main crops, number of crops per year, per hectareproductivity, type of soil, agriculture productivity perworker,distribution of average land holding, average size of tilling,distribution of commercial/Regional Rural Bank, availabilityof bank branches per sq. km,potential occupation, service and industry.
CHAPTER-IIScheme-wise availability of resources of the district asa whole in respect of all employment and developmentoriented Programme such asSwarnajayanti Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY),Rashtriya Sam Vikas Yojana (RSVY),Watershed development programmes (such as IWDP,DPAP, DDP)PMRY (its share for rural segment),Rural Employment Generation Programme of KVIC,Sampoorna Grameena Rozgar Yojana (SGRY)MPLAD, MLALADNFFWP andall other Centrally and state sponsored programmes
Block-wise breakup of distribution/availability of resources under the above programmes along with the present status of number of persons unemployed/ semi- employed may be given.
Location/area specific kinds/types of infrastructure, which are expected in the Panchayat.(i) One panchayat Ghar(ii) One primary/secondary school building sufficient for the number of children studying.(iii) One low cost storage go down for storing food grains(iv) Tube/open wells (whichever is relevant in that area) for drinking / irrigation purpose.(v) Internal roads providing connectivity with main roads(vi) Drainage / nallah to drain out extra water in the water logged/flood prone areas(vii) Dairy/Veterinary development infrastructure.(viii) Erection of permanent /pucca embankment for flood protection
(IX) Small check dams, water conservation activities like digging of ponds/percolation tanks and de-silting of ponds(x) Strengthening of marketing infrastructure at local Panchayat haats / market such as construction of permanent sheds and low cost community storage godowns for safe storage of goods etc.(xi) Individual/community horticulture/social forestry development.(xii) Any other facility considered essential on the local needs.* - The above list of infrastructure is only illustrative and not exhaustive. It is possible that some of the above infrastructure may not be suitable for a particular state / district / panchayat but may be relevant in other. As such, the above list may be modified and prepared taking into account local needs and aspirations.
CHAPTER-III Details on Panchayat –wise (i) list of infrastructure already existing and (ii). List of infrastructure that are missing out of the list given at Section-B, Chapter –11 (iii) requirement of resources for creation of missing infrastructure along with Programme-wise inflow/share of the Panchayat out of all development programmes listed at Section-A of chapter-11 and (iv) estimated employment generation in terms of both self and wage employment while creating missing infrastructure . The above information is to be given year-wise.
While assessing resource inflow from all sources, 15% for maintenance of assets already created /being created be shown separately and as such only 85% of the total inflow may be taken in to account for showing resource inflow for creation of assets. The above Panchayat–wise list of missing infrastructure have to be prepared in a manner that each missing infrastructure will give a clear cut idea under which Programme it is proposed with estimated cost and the number of expected beneficiaries to be covered under self and wage employment.
Incase of wage employment, number of man-day’s generation is to be divided by 100 to arrive at number of persons to be employed. All activities /works shown under the existing Programme have to be implemented in accordance with their respective Programme guidelines. If any activity which is permissible under more than one Programme, it may be shown under that Programme which has larger share for that Panchayat. It should, however, be ensured that one activity is shown under one Programme only with the stipulation that is completed during one financial year it self. Spillover to the next year may be indicated in exceptional cases where inflow of resources is limited during the year. Estimated cost may be shown increased 5 to 10% every year while showing year-wise activities to be taken up.
Missing Infrastructure with Priority(Shelf of Projects)(for example) Check dam to store water Drainage/ Nallah to drain extra water in water logged/flood affected areas Digging of pond Land Development of Common Wasteland area Percolation Wells Storage Godown and so on.
Employment Generation Under Self Employment Programmes (NO. of expected beneficiaries) Wage Employment Programmes a. Number of expected man days to be generated (in numbers) b. Number of expected beneficiaries getting employment ( (a) above/100) Area development programme a) Number of expected beneficiaries (in Numbers) b) (i) Number of expected mandays generated (in numbers) b) (ii) Number expected mandays converted in to number of persons( (b) (i) above/100)
CHAPTER-IV Block-wise exercise by consolidating panchayat–wise information under respective Block (Mandal) may be take-up. Summary for each Block separately to indicate missing Infrastructure wise details giving Year wise cost estimates and Expected employment generation may be given
Missing Infrastructure Drainage (in waterlogged/flood affected areas) (in KM) Low cost community food grains storage godowns High school Building Strengthening/construction of permanent river embankment (In KM) Check dams Digging of ponds/desilting Horticulture/Social forestry (a)Individual (b)Community Dairy Development (and so on)
CHAPTER-V Annual Action plans for the NFFWP for the next five years based on the perspective plan. Segregate Panchayat-wise activities /works those indicated against the NFFWP quota. Panchayat-wise and year-wise works/activities to be taken up under the NFFWP with clear cut prioritization will have to be given.
Name of activities in priority order (for example) Checkdams Digging of ponds/desilting Drainage (in waterlogged/flood affected areas) Development & Bunding of degraded lands Other water harvesting structures (mention type of structure) (and so on)
CHAPTER-VI The success of the program will be quantified based on the following type of parameters on pre (as on 2005) and post (as on 2010) perspective plan assessment.
