The JRY was revised and re-launched in April 1999 and was named as Jawahar Gram Samridhi Yojana or JGSY. The secondary objective of the JRY has become the main objective, i.e., creating economic assets and infrastructure for the village and the creation of employment is a by-product of the main objective.
In the context of poverty alleviation programmes, especially the JRY or its more recent variant, the Jawahar Gram Samridhi Yojana (JGSY), there are two major concerns: one is slow disbursal and its bunching towards the end of the financial year, and the other is connected with hasty and ad hoc utilization of funds.
Therefore, the scheme was restructured and streamlined with the introduction of a programme Jawahar Gram Samridhi Yojana (JGSY) in 1999.
