SCHEME OF ASSISTANCE TO VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS FOR THE WELFARE OF OTHER BACKWARD CLASSES
1. OBJECTIVE
The programme of giving grant-in-aid to Voluntary Organizations under the Backward Classes sector has been taken up by the Govt. of India during the Ninth Five Year Plan. The main purpose behind the scheme of grant-in-aid to voluntary organisation for taking up welfare activities among the OBCs is, to improve the educational and socio-economic conditions of these communities through voluntary efforts. The aim of the scheme is to involve the voluntary sector to improve educational and socioeconomic conditions of the target group i.e. OBCs, with a view to upgrade skill to enable them to start income generating activities on their own or get gainfully employed in some sector or the other. The principle that good voluntary organisations should not only be assisted but also consciously built up, has been the guiding spirit behind the formulation of the scheme.
2. TARGET GROUP AND ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA OF OBCs
The NGOs will select only such OBCs as indicated below :-
(a) The beneficiaries should belong to OBCs as per notified list in the Central List of Backward Classes.
(b) The beneficiaries whose parents / guardians income from all sources including the income of the beneficiary does not exceed Rs. 1.00 Lakhs annually will be eligible for availing the benefit under the scheme.

Assistance under the scheme will be given to eligible voluntary organisations fulfilling the eligibility conditions laid down as under:-
In order to be eligible for assistance under this scheme, an Organisation should have the following characteristics :
(a) It is a registered body under an appropriate Act so that it gets a corporate status and a legal personality and a group liability is established for its activities.
(b) It has an appropriate administrative structure and a duly constituted managing / executive committee.
(c) The aims and objects of the organisation and programmes in fulfillment of those aims and objects are precisely laid down ;
(d) The organisation is initiated and governed by its own members on democratic principles, without any external control ; and
(e) It should not run for profit to any individual or body of individuals.
The Ministry will identify reputed and established NGOs which could be asked to set up facilities in those areas where various facilities for OBCs have not developed and rural and other inaccessible areas either themselves or in partnership with other NGOs.
Under the scheme, grants shall be sanctioned subject to terms and conditions enclosed at Annexure- II and provided application for the same is received as per prescribed proforma.
4. TYPE OF ACTIVITIES COVERED

An illustrated list of activities for which grant-in-aid will be extended are enclosed at Annexure-III.
5. EXTENT OF ASSISTANCE
The quantum of assistance shall be determined in each case on merit. The Government of India may, however, meet 90% of the approved expenditure on any or all of the items enumerated in para-6 of the Terms & Conditions (Annexure-II). The remaining expenditure is to be met by the concerned voluntary organisation from its own sources.
