The scheme envisages integrated development of the selected village across multiple areas such as agriculture, health, education, sanitation, environment, livelihoods, etc. In addition to infrastructure development, MAGPY also aims at instilling values, such as people’s participation, gender equality, dignity of women, social justice, community service, cleanliness, local self-government, transparency and accountability in public life, etc. in the villages and their people, so that they get transformed into models for others.
The Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) are the pivots of this scheme. Gram Panchayats are the basic unit for development.
