Centre government to promote rural women and youths

Many government and non government organisation is trying to provide and promote the rural culture and bring development especially to the rural youth and women.

The target audience have to get broader vision there a lot of activities and projects have been launched to build confidence among these group

Therefore to widen its rural push the Centre is mulling multiple interventions which would include expanding the role of women-driven self help groups (SHGs) and promoting self-employment for rural youth.

Some official said the new crop insurance scheme, approved by the Cabinet recently is part of the many such intervention plans, some of which might come in theBudget and some even before that.

Besides contesting political allegations about its being anti-poor, the government is also trying to give a rural cushion to the struggling economy that has stagnated at 7-7.5 per cent annual growth rates.

Beside, state models on various schemes are being studied to incorporate some of their ingredients in Central schemes. For instance, late last year, the Devendra Fadnavis government in Maharashtra had constituted an expert group to study and provide solutions to unemployment to farmers during the off-peak farm season.

The group, headed by BJP Vice-President Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, suggested farmers and their children be trained in 17 skills including bee-keeping and handicrafts etc. The training will start in June and the focus will also be to train the children of farmers who committed suicide in the Vidarbha region.

The group suggested the courses be short-term and the children be taught at a university, which could be set up. Cooperation of the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Rural Industrialization in Wardha would also be taken. Trained farmers could, then, get a certificate recognising their skills.
