The programme was being implemented in the State with effect from 1 January 1996. Besides, a scheme for providing homestead sites to those rural BPL households who neither have agricultural land nor a house site was launched as part of IAY with effect from 24 August 2009. The scheme was being implemented through the Zilla Parishads/DRDAs.
