Ambedkar Nagar (Bhiti Block)

Plan is operational in 39 villages of Bhiti block covering around 3,200 families and a population of around 22,000 people. The area is a drought prone zone and food security is a major challenge. The district is backward and most of the population belongs to the marginalised sections, evidently with poor development indicators.

The population of Ambedkar Nagar is around 2 million, with an average family size of seven persons. A significant percentage of scheduled caste population (24% of the district population) lives in this district. Only 59% of the total population is literate and 45% females are literate. The sex ratio is 978 females against per 1,000 males. The child population between the age group of 0-4 years is 8,29,357, while the adult population is 20,88,928. About 54% families live in semi-permanent and temporary houses. The coverage of government health and education services is very poor. Out of 1,675 villages only 361 have medical facilities and 996 have government schools.
