A Gram Panchayat would be the basic unit.It will have a population of 3000-5000 in plain areas and 1000-3000 in hilly, tribal and difficult areas. In districts where this unit size is not available, Gram Panchayats approximating the desirable population size may be chosen. The MP would be free to identify a suitable Gram Panchayat for being developed as Adarsh Gram, other than his/her own village or that of his/her spouse. The MP will identify one Gram Panchayat to be taken up immediately, and two others to be taken up a little later. Lok Sabha MP has to choose a Gram Panchayat from within his/her constituency and Rajya Sabha MP a Gram Panchayat from the rural area of a district of his/her choice in the State from which he/she is elected. Nominated MPs may choose a Gram Panchayat from the rural area of any district in the country. In the case of urban constituencies, (where there are no Gram Panchayats), the MP will identify a Gram Panchayat from a nearby rural constituency. Primarily, the goal is to develop three Adarsh Grams by March 2019, of which one would be achieved by 2016. Thereafter, five such Adarsh Grams (one per year) will be selected and developed by 2024.

3.Jyotigram Yojana scheme


Jyotigram Yojana is an initiative of the Government of Gujarat to ensure availability of 24-hour three phase quality power supply to rural areas of the state and to supply power to farmers residing in scattered farm houses through feeders having specially designed transformers.
The scheme was dedicated to the nation by President A. P. J. Abdul Kalam in 2006. Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) has commended the scheme saying Jyotigram scheme has radically improved the quality of village life, spurred non-farm economic enterprises, and halved the power subsidy in agriculture.Government of India is set to accept Gujarat’s Jyotigram project as a flagship scheme for the 12th five year plan .

Gujrat model

Government of India (GoI) is all set to accept Gujarat’s Jyotigram project as a flagship scheme for the 12th five year plan (2012-17) in the power sector for supplying round-the-clock, high-quality three-phase power to all villages. Commissioned in 2006, Jyotigram provides for a separate electric feeder for domestic use and a limited agricultural supply of nearly eight hours a day, continuous and of constant voltage.
A just-released Planning Commission draft titled Faster, Sustainable and More Inclusive Growth: An Approach to the 12th Five Year Plan, says that the separation of agricultural feeders in the country will enable villages to get 24 X 7 three-phased power for domestic uses, schools, hospitals and village industries”. As for the farm pump sets, which require much more power, they can obtain “eight hours or more of quality power on a pre-announced schedule”.

The project underlines
The program of feeder separation has to be carried through across the country. Gujarat has achieved very good results by combining feeder separation with an extensive watershed program for groundwater recharge. Punjab, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh have also moved forward in this direction. Feeder separation needs to be extended to all states, especially where groundwater is extensively used.
