Expanding the National Rural Livelihoods Project To develop rural India

Fashionclutch: Expanding the National Rural Livelihoods Project To develop the condition of rural area. Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh brought the idea of private sector and corporate world to save and generate revenue with the help of World Bank in the country in 1991.

Dr Manmohan singh is an economist but on his economics bought only benefit for corporate world. He bought the plan of private sector because public sector had failed to generate revenue for the country. he planned to bring transparency in public sector as well as open door to build private sector and offer to outsource their own product. Now public sector also stuck in scams. The recent scams in India have opened up a new debate over the loopholes in private sector and constitution. Over the past year the Common Wealth Games, 2 G spectrum cases are all cases of how corruption has seeped the innards of our society.

But Indian framers always stay away from Dr Manmohan economics. The condition of framer in Buldelkand, Vidarbha, Oddisha and now UP framers is suffering from land acquisition act. There is no such rule to protect the Indian framer, who lives in rural area. Around 86 percent citizen lives below the poverty line (BPL), government is running many schemes for them to but they are not beneficiary from them.

The number of framers who have committed suicide in rural area after 1997 is closed to 190,543. According to the facts two- thirds of these suicides have occurred in five states.

In Maharashtra at Vidarbha, Uttar Pradesh at Buldelkand, Oddisha, Chattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh. The rate at which framers are committing suicide about a third of the country's population but two thirds of framers committed suicides.

Now government is planning to expand the National Rural Livelihoods project Under National Rural Livelihoods Mission to provide more facility to poor framers or BPL card holders though out the scheme. It would be entering into an agreement with the World Bank for soft loan worth US$1 billion to implement the National Rural Livelihoods Project under National Rural Livelihood Mission.

It is being implemented in 28 states and 7 union territories in India. NRLM project is one of the largest poverty reduction initiatives aimed at reaching out to 350 million people with millennium goal. Based on the past experience in several states, NLRP is expected to have a transformational social impact, supporting India's efforts to achieve the millennium development goals (MDG) on nutrition, gender and poverty.

The distribution of project funds among the states level would be divided on the share of rural BPL population in the total states. It directly connects almost a quarter of India's population.

It will be able to bring to bear voice and answerability over providers of educational, health, nutritional and financial services generate employment and investment in one of the world’s largest poverty reduction initiatives would help in setting up of an institutional platform by mobilizing rural poor, particularly women, into robust grassroots institutions of their own.

Indira Awaas Yojana and other development scheme already failed to reach in rural area of India. These schemes will assist in professionalization and industrialization of the overall program management of NRLM by shifting the focus of expenditure, based allocation, to provide quality and technical assistance and simple finance scheme. It will also generate revenue in developing a wider base of implementing partnerships with corporate, private sector, civil society, and other development institutions to build up fair structure, innovations, services, and delivery mechanisms.

It would be good news for Indian framers, in this scheme government will invest intensively in support implementation of NRLM in 100 districts and 400 blocks of 12 high poverty states (Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu), accounting for 85 percent of the rural poor in the country. The aim is to create best practice sites and to develop them as local immersion locations and generate critical pool of social capital for catalyzing social mobilization of the poor and building quality institutions of the poor.
