Prime Minister Employment Generation Programme (PMEGP)


The Prime Minister’s Employment Generation Progrmme (PMEGP) has been announced on 15 August, 2008 and launched in place of REGP and PMRY schemes, is yet another national effort in solving the problem of unemployment through provision of institutional finance to the economically weaker sections among the educated unemployed youth to set up micro enterprises. As compared to the other major programmes of self-employment not only the bank loaning under the programme is substantial but also initial reports indicates that the performance on an aggregate is fairly successful with a comparatively higher rate of loan recovery. In order to sustain this pace and also improve the over-all efficiency, various organizations like KVIC, KVIB and DIC involved in the implementation of the scheme need to share their opportunities, successes and challenges.
