Backward Regions Grant Fund (BRGF)

The Backward Region Grant Fund (BRGF) is an effort to bridge the development divide through decentralization of planning processes. Participatory in nature, local communities and the institutional mechanism at the bottom rung of the Panchayati Raj system are assigned central roles in the Programme.

As Technical Support Institution to the Ministry of Panchayati Raj and the Planning Commission, we supported and guided District Planning Committees (DPCs)/Zilla Parishads in preparation of District Plans (Perspective and Annual Plans). The 15 districts supported for Plan Preparation are located in the states of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Jkarkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Chhattisgarh and Odisha.
