Mumbai: Maha to Implement Rural Livelihood Mission Scheme

Mumbai, June 2 (PTI) Maharashtra Government has decided to implement the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) in one district of each revenue division, where the Human Development Index is the lowest.

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan told reporters after the weekly cabinet meeting that the scheme would be implemented in the rest of the districts in a phased manner.

The NRLM, earlier called Swarnajayanti Gram Sawayam Rojgar scheme, is 75 per cent centrally-funded.

A state-level committee (to be headed by the Chief Minister) as well as district-and taluka-level committees would be set up to oversee the implementation of the scheme.

NRLM would cost Rs 400 crore, of which Rs 300 crore would come from the Centre.

In the next seven years, the NRLM would work to provide assured livelihood to 45 lakh rural BPL families.
