Aptitude test Questions answers
Question 12 Explanation: 

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs chaired recently approved the proposal for renaming and restructuring of MsDP as PMJVK. The CCEA also approved its continuation during the remaining period of the 14th Finance Commission.

The criteria for identification of Minority Concentration Towns and Clusters of Villages have been rationalised by lowering the population percentage criteria of Minority Communities and fulfilment of backwardness parameters in the following manners:-

  • For MCTs, refer statement 2.
  • Corrected statement 1: Earlier only those Cluster of Villages which were having at-least 50% population of Minority Community were taken. Now the population criteria has been lowered to 25%.

Additional Information:

  • The Programme aims to address development deficits in the identified minority concentration areas. The identification of minority concentration areas has been done on the basis of presence of substantial population of notified Minority Communities (Sikhs, Muslims, Christians, Zoroastrians, Buddhists and Jains) based on Census, 2011.
  • The area to be covered under PMJVK would be 57% more as compared to the existing MsDP.
  • The MsDP covered 196 district of the country whereas PMJVK will cover 308 districts of the country.
  • 80% of the resources under the PMJVK would be earmarked for projects related to education, health and skill development.
  • 33 to 40% of resources under the PMJVK would be specifically allocated for women centric projects.
  • A provision to bring all implementing agencies under Public Finance Management System(PFMS) and its effective use ensured to monitor fund utilization has been made in PMJVK.
  • MsDP has been identified as one of the Core of the Core Schemes under National Development Agenda in the Report of the Sub-Group of Chief Ministers on Rationalization of Centrally Sponsored Schemes, which was constituted by NITI Aayog.
