Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP)

The Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP) is a scheme offered to provide financial assistance to those who wish to set up new enterprises under the programme. It will be done through establishing micro enterprises and for that government is going to help with the subsidized credit. PMEGP is made by combining two schemes, Prime Minister’s Rojgar Yojona (PMRY) and Rural Employment Generation Program (REGP). Both of the schemes were in work upto March, 2008.

The nodal agency responsible for the implementation of the scheme at the national level is the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC). The programme is supervised by the District Commerce & Industries Centers in the district level.

Objectives:

  1. Firstly, to provide enough employment in rural as well as in urban areas through the self-help process of PMEGP i.e. the person can be able to do his own business set up by himself.
  2. Secondly, PMEGP can provide a uninterrupted flow of employment to the different kind of artisans and people in villages so that the migration from village to city in search of employment can be stopped and
  3. Thirdly, the capital flow to the micro sector can be done.
