It is a mega mission with a financial outlay of 30,000 crore rupees will be implemented in all the villages in Assam in the next five years culminating in 2021-22.

The programme will be implemented through ‘saturation model’ by covering each revenue village through focused interventions in direct economic activities, logistic support including market linkages, and community support.
