The Backward Regions Grant Fund (BRGF) is designed to redress regional
imbalances in development. The fund aims to supplement and converge existing
developmental inflows into identified districts, so as to:

  1. Bridge critical gaps in local infrastructure and other development requirements
    that are not being adequately met through existing inflows,
  2. Strengthen, Panchayat and Municipality level governance with capacity building
    to facilitate participatory planning, decision making, implementation and
  3. Provide professional support to local bodies for planning, implementation and
    monitoring their plans,
  4. Improve the performance and delivery of critical functions assigned to Panchayats
  • In Mizoram there are two BRGF Districts, Lawngtlai and Saiha Districts.
