Correct Answer - Option 1 : 75 : 25

The correct answer is 75:25.

  • The Swarna Jayanthi Gram Swarozgar Yojana scheme is being implemented on a cost-sharing basis between the Centre and the States in the ratio of 75:25.
  • Given the low allocations for the scheme, only about 2 lakh urban poor under skill development and 50,000 under self-employment are being benefitted under SJSRY annually. 
  • The target under skill development of the urban poor is very small considering that the number of the urban poor was estimated at 81 million in 2004-05 and that nationally a target of 500 million persons to be skill-trained by 2022 has been fixed by the National Council on Skill Development.

  • The objective of Swarna Jayanthi Gram Swarozgar Yojana is to provide sustainable income to the rural poor.
  • The program aims at establishing a large number of micro-enterprises in the rural areas, based upon the potential of the rural poor.
  • The SJGSY was launched on 1st December 1997.
