Since the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) has been extended to all the districts of Tamil Nadu from 1.4.2008 onwards, the Central Government has discontinued the Sampoorna Grameen Rozgar Yojana (SGRY).  At present under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme, such works like desilting of ponds, channels, ooranies and formation of roads are undertaken in Tamil Nadu which are directly entrusted to the people without the involvement of contractors and machineries. In the current scenario, consequent upon the discontinuance of SGRY and implementation of MGNREGS, rural infrastructure works involving intensive material u sage and varied utilization of machinery are not adequately taken up under the existing Centrally Sponsored Schemes.  There is a need to stabilize the assets created under MGNREGS.  Further, there is a continuous pressing need to undertake structural repairs of Minor Irrigation (MI) Tanks vested with the Panchayat Unions.

‘Rural Infrastructure Scheme’ (RIS) serves the dual purpose of creating Infrastructure facilities in the village as well as stabilizing the assets created through MGNREGS. It is implemented in all the 3 tiers of Rural Local Bodies (i.e) District Panchayat, Panchayat Unions and Village Panchayats.
