Must Read

The Central Government started a statewide outreach campaign named “Sangathan Se Samridhhi – Leaving No Rural Woman Behind” to activate one crore rural women and build over one lakh Self-Help Groups (SHGs) by June 30, 2023.

According to the rural development ministry, the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana-National Rural Livelihoods Mission mobilised approximately nine crore households and 83 lakh SHGs.

The “Sangathan Se Samriddhi” campaign will recruit one crore women to join the nine crore SHG members. Let’s get above 10 crores. Giriraj Singh, minister for rural development and panchayati raj, suggested that all rural women join SHGs.

The Hindu’s Economic Survey 2023 noted that SHGs can boost women’s labour market participation. The survey found that 75% of rural Indian women worked in agriculture, therefore Self-Help Groups (SHG) may help them upskill and find jobs in relevant fields.

“65% of India’s population is rural. Thus, women from these places must be given every opportunity to help make our country a $5 trillion economy, Singh said.

The programme also attempts to encourage surviving households to join SHGs and resuscitate defunct SHGs.
