Rural Development Activities as Conceived By the Government
The Project was started on July 1, 1972, particularly to help the small and marginal farmers. The following are its activities:
Education and Training of Farmers’ Children:
This is being done by extending the Book Bank facilities. They are helped with text books and other reading aids, such as dictionaries, note-books, instrument-boxes, laboratory note-books, loose sheets, development fees, coaching fees, etc.
Craft Training-cum-Production (Tailoring):
To meet the essential and emergent needs of the residential institutions and the inmates of the Ashrama, a tailoring section operates to impart training to them.
