Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA)  in 2015-16 has been renamed as Rashtriya Gram Swaraj Abhiyan (RGSA). The Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA) was launched during the 12th Five year Plan period to strengthen the Panchayati Raj system across the country and to address the critical gaps that constrain it.

Policy shift in 2015-16: In the context of huge devolution of funds to Gram Panchayats as per the recommendations of Fourteenth Finance Commission, the State component of the Scheme stands transferred to the States to be met from their own resources. The components for which support is extended under the programme include the following:

1. Capacity building for strengthening Panchayati Raj
2. Development of institutional capability for training
3. Implementation of PESA
4. E- governance support structures
