Participatory Identification of Poor (PIP)

Participatory Identification of Poor (PIP)

The inclusion of the target group under NRLM is determined by a well-defined, transparent and equitable process of participatory identification of poor, at the level of the community. All households identified as poor through the PIP process is the NRLM Target Group and is eligible for all the benefits under the programme.

Target Group is identified through the Participatory Identification of Poor (PIP) method. The NRLM Target Group (NTG) derived through the PIP is de-linked from the BPL. The efforts to roll-out PIP in the states have begun. PIP needs to be a community-driven process. To ensure this, the first PIP exercise is conducted after the formation of the primary federation (6-12 months after village entry). The PIP is conducted at frequent intervals to revise the list of poor in the village. The list of poor identified through the PIP must be vetted by the Gram Sabha and approved by the Gram Panchayat. All the households in the PIP list are eligible to receive all benefits under NRLM.
