Central Sector Schemes are the schemes that are entirely and directly funded and executed by the central government. The schemes are formulated by the Centre based on subjects from the Union List. CSS is divided into three parts (a)core of the core (b)core and (c)optional. These are divided on the basis of the financial involvement of the states. For example, the MGNREGA scheme which comes under the core of the core group will see the state pooling in 25% of funds whereas the rest is taken care of by the Centre.

Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) are schemes that are implemented by state governments of India but are largely funded by the Central Government with a defined State Government share.
