SC Colony Development

To create a Hygienic environment in the colony and tm improve the living conditions of SC families, the colony is developed by providing cement concrete Roads/ Drainages / Drinking Water facilities / Construction of Individual / community Toilets/Street Lights etc.

The concept of Special Component Plan came into existence from the VI Five-year plan period. Prior to that the economic upliftment schemes for SC families were very few. It was therefore thought of introducing a scheme called as SCP under which all round development of SC people could be brought about. All the Development departments were asked to earmark 15% of their total budget allocation for the welfare of SC people. Except a few departments like Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Horticulture all other major departments like Power, Irrigation Public Works etc., earmarked only a notional amount for the Welfare of SC's., which was not benefiting the SC's directly. Therefore funds from such departments are being pooled and are being spent for the priority sectors such as Education, Housing, and Irrigation, which bring about overall economic upliftment and infrastructure development of the Schedule Caste people.
