National Rural Livilihood Mission
About the scheme, objectives and target:
In spite of rapid growth of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in India, a large rural population of the country still lives below poverty line (BPL). Different studies estimated the rate of rural poverty at different levels. In spite of the numerous efforts, the rural poverty continues to be a major challenge to the Government at all levels.
To address the challenge of rural poverty, the Ministry of Rural Development conceived a mission mode scheme titled as National Rural Livelihood Mission (NRLM) in the year 2010. NRLM was renamed as DAY-NRLM (Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana – National Rural Livelihood Mission) with effect from March 29, 2016. It is a centrally sponsored scheme and the Central and State Governments jointly fund the projects.
The implementation responsibility of the Mission is vested with State Rural Livelihood Missions (Special Purpose Vehicles). At the district level, a District Mission Management Unit (DMMU) is responsible for planning and implementation, but under the overall control of the district administration. At the block level, a Block Mission Management Unit implements the Mission activities. The Mission is implemented in a phased but intensive manner, taking up certain number of blocks in each year. The Mission is expected to saturate mobilization of all rural poor households by 2023-24.
The Department of Rural Development in the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India (GoI) has the overall responsibility of policy formulation, monitoring and evaluation of the program and for release of funds.
The objective of the Mission is to promote sustainable livelihoods for the poor such that they come out of poverty. The institutions of the poor are intended to facilitate (i) access to formal credit; (ii) support for diversification and strengthening of livelihoods; and (iii) access to entitlements and public services.
