Livelihood scheme to be implemented in mission mode

New Delhi, May 12 (IANS) The government has decided to implement the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) in a mission mode to ensure targeted and time-bound delivery of results, an official said here Sunday.

The NRLM has been mandated to ensure that at least one member from each identified rural poor household, preferably a woman, be brought under the self-help group (SHG) network in a time-bound manner. The ultimate target is full coverage of the Below Poverty Line (BPL) families.

Of 42,76,911 SHGs formed in the country, 28,36,677 comprise women.

A proposal has already been moved for finalising the target group based on the Participatory Identification of Poor process, the official said.

The NRLM was launched by the ministry of rural development in June 2011. Aided in part by the World Bank, the mission aims at creating efficient and effective institutional platforms for the rural poor and enabling them to increase household income.
