KBK Plan

Revised Long Term Action Plan for KBK Districts

The Long Term Action Plan (LTAP) for Kalahandi, Bolangir & Koraput (KBK) districts of Orissa was launched by the then Prime Minister on 18.8.1995. The basic intention was to pool the available resources and integrate them scientifically to produce the desired results for the speedy development of extremely backward KBK districts in Orissa.

The undivided districts of Koraput, Bolangir and Kalahandi (KBK) have now been divided into eight districts namely, Kalahandi, Nuapada, Bolangir, Sonepur, Koraput, Nabarangpur, Malkangiri and Rayagada comprising of 80 blocks, 1171 Gram Panchayats and 12,104 Revenue villages.

The LTAP was initially drawn for a seven year period i.e. 1995-96 to 2001-2002. Since the LTAP did not have the envisaged effect, the Government of Orissa were advised to present a revised plan which would focus on high priority schemes to deal with the basic problems of these districts.
