Union Minister of Tribal Affairs Arjun Munda has said that the government has started a scheme, ” Pradhan Mantri Aadi Adarsh Gram Yojana” for faster development of tribal villages. The focus of the scheme is on converging different programs of 41 ministries in the tribal villages to ensure their all round development.
The aim of the govt is to take the villages into a saturation mode. The very aim of the program is to turn the focus on such remote and backward villages of the country which are lagging behind due to lack of attention. Efforts are also being made to ensure the geo-tagging of and market linkages for the tribal products through TRIFED.
