The Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana was initiated by the Government of India in order to bring the members of parliament of different political parties under the same umbrella.

Each member of the Parliament, under this Yojana, will choose one village each from the constituency that they are representing, except their in-laws’ village or their own village and can fix some parameters, making it a model village by the year 2019. 

After that, they can take on two or three villages and will be doing the same to those villages by the time, the next general elections come along in the year 2019. They can, thereafter, set themselves some rural improvement projects or ten-year-long village projects. Under this yojana, the villages will also be offered smart schools, Pucca housing to the homeless villagers and universal access to basic healthcare facilities.
