LIVELIHOOD MISSION ROLLED OUT

Jammu, Dec 17: In an effort to further strengthen the prospects of rural employability in Jammu & Kashmir, the state Cabinet has accorded sanction to the roll out of National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM), a poverty eradication programme through J&K State Rural Livelihood Society (SRLS).
NRLM is a universal social mobilization programme under which at least one member from each rural poor and vulnerable household, preferably women, will be brought within the net of Self Help Groups (SHGs) in a time bound manner.
The scheme will facilitate creation of a platform and nurturing them with continuous capacity building support. The mission aims to reduce poverty in rural areas by building strong grassroots institutions for the poor, engage them into gainful livelihood intervention and ensure appreciable improvement in their income on a sustainable basis.
The expenses for the mission will be shared between centre and state initially in the ratio of 75:25. Self help groups of 10-15 women will be formed in their immediate neighborhood. Each 25 to 30 groups will be federated so as to organize Self Help Groups into a bigger forum to provide financial and other support.
For the purpose, Rs 17 crore have been allocated by the Union Ministry of Rural Development for J&K for the current Year.
To start with, four resource blocks in the state have been selected, two each in Kashmir and Jammu divisions. Director Rural Sanitation J&K will be the Mission Director J&K SRLS.
