Status: The government overhauled the ‘Special Central Assistance to Tribal Sub-Scheme’ and renamed it as ‘Pradhan Mantri Adi Adarsh Gram Yojana’ for the comprehensive development of more than 36,000 villages having at least 50% tribal population and 500 tribals. Under this scheme, the government is reducing the development gap in eight key sectors such as road connectivity, telecom connectivity, schools, health, and drinking water facilities. No major progress has been witnessed though in the financial or physical achievement of the said scheme. i ii
