Twenty Point Programme

Alleviation of poverty and improving the quality of life of the people, especially of those who are below the poverty line, has been the Prime objective of planned development in the country. In recent years, the meaning of economic development has shifted from growth in per capita income to the expansion of opportunities. Development of human capability can broadly be seen as the central feature of the process of growth. Government of India, through different programmes / schemes, is helping its citizens to expand their capabilities.

A package of programmers comprising schemes relating to Poverty Alleviation, Employment Generation, Education, Health, etc. called the Twenty Point Programme ( TPP ), has been in operation since 1975. Over the years, the need for restructuring the Programme has been felt in the light of our achievements and experiences, as well as the introduction of several new policies and programmers by the Government of India. Although the TPP has been in existence for three and half decades, as the desired objectives of eradication of poverty and improvement in the quality of life of the common man have yet to be completely attained. The Twenty Point Programme has been restructured in 1982 and 1986 and subsequently in 2006. The rechristened 20 Point Programme-2006 are as follows:

  • Poverty Eradication
  • Power to People
  • Support to Farmers
  • Labour Welfare
  • Food Security
  • Housing for All
  • Clean Drinking Water

  • Youth Development
  • Improvement of Slums
  • Environment Protection and Afforestation
  • Social Security
  • Rural Road
