The Union cabinet approved extension for one year, during financial year 2018-19, of special financial package for implementation of the National Rural Livelihoods Mission for Jammu and Kashmir. The cabinet also approved allocation of funds to the state under Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NRLM) on a need basis for implementation of the special package without linking it with poverty ratio.
Main points of implementation:- (1) The extension would ensure coverage of all the blocks in Jammu and Kashmir under DAY-NRLM and ensure “social inclusion, social development, promotion of livelihoods” and lead to poverty alleviation in the state. (2) It will ensure mobilisation of households under the auto inclusion category and households with at least one deprivation category listed in the socio-economic caste Census-2011.
About DAY- NRLM:-(1) Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) launched Swarnajayanti Grameen Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) to focus on promoting self-employment among rural poor. SGSY is now remodeled to form NRLM thereby plugging the shortfalls of SGSY programme. This scheme was launched in 2011 but now it is known as Deen Dayal Antyodaya Yojana launched on 25 September 2015. (2) Aided in part through investment support by the World Bank, the Mission aims at creating efficient and effective institutional platforms of the rural poor, enabling them to increase household income through sustainable livelihood enhancements and improved access to financial services. (3) NRLM set out with an agenda to cover 7 Crore rural poor households, across 600 districts, 6000 blocks, 2.5 lakh Gram Panchayats and 6 lakh villages in the country through self-managed Self Help Groups (SHGs) and federated institutions and support them for livelihoods collectives in a period of 8-10 years.
