Chandigarh, November 27

The state level committee constituted for implementation of Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram (PMJVK) on Friday sanctioned projects worth Rs 35 crore in 15 blocks of minority communities in seven districts.

Haryana Chief Secretary Vijai Vardhan presided over the meeting of the committee.

The seven districts identified for projects are Palwal, Fatehabad, Mewat, Kaithal, Kurukshetra, Yamunanagar and Sirsa.

The projects approved included the construction of women hostels in Mewat Engineering College in Nuh block, a community centre and three dispensaries in Pehowa block, toilets (boys and girls) in 86 schools, 105 sheds for working of self-help group (SHG), Anganwadi centres, library and gym equipment and mats at gymnasium in Hathin block.

The Chief Secretary directed the District Deputy Commissioners to work on new innovative projects. He said the School Education Department would distribute tablets to students of minority communities to help them in their education amid the pandemic.

These tablets should be given on priority basis in these blocks of minority communities. He said the objective of the PMJVK scheme was to improve the socio-economic conditions of the minorities.

The scheme is being implemented where at least 25 per cent of the total population falls under the minority category. Under it, 33 to 40 per cent of resources are allocated exclusively for women-centric projects. In addition, 80 per cent of the resources have been earmarked for projects related to education, health and skill development, he added.
