Overview

Overview

NRLM aims to alleviate rural poverty and create sustainable livelihood opportunities for the rural poor. Towards this objective, NRLM seeks to promote sustainable community based institutions which will facilitate provision of financial services, economic services and other entitlements to the rural poor. In order to implement the programme in a Mission mode, the state governments are required to create autonomous societies, establish dedicated Mission implementation architecture at the state, district and block levels and set up adequate complementary systems (viz., human resource, administration, finance, procurement, MIS and M&E).

Thus, Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD) is required to provide technical and professional support to the states to establish the Mission societies, implementation architecture and systems and guide them in the implementation and monitor their progress.

In this context,Union Cabinet in 2013 gave clearance to set up autonomous society at national level i.e. National Rural Livelihoods Promotion Society (NRLPS) under Ministry of Rural Development. NRLPS is envisaged as a compact, professional and multi-disciplinary body to provide wide ranging professional and technical support to the National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) and the State Rural Livelihoods Missions (SRLMs) in the implementation of their Mission Objectives.
