The objective of the PMGSY is to provide connectivity by way of an all-weather road to the unconnected habitations in rural areas so that services (educational, health, marketing facilities, etc.) which are not available in the unconnected habitations become available. Accordingly a Programme Implementation Unit (PUI) constituted in each District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) with Project officer. DRDA as chairman and manned by competent technical staff prepares the project proposals and Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) and forwards them to the State Technical Agency (College of Engineering, Thiruvananthapuram) for scrutiny of designs and estimates. DPRs are then forwarded to the National Rural Roads Development Agency (NRRDA) which submits the same to the Ministry of Rural Development, GOI for clearance.
