Policy Indications

New Delhi: India’s Ministry of Human Resources Development (HRD) has launched the second edition of the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan under which students from 750 higher educational institutions from across the country are expected to adopt villages and visit them and familiarise themselves with ordinary people and their problems. 

These educational institutions, through their faculty and students, will carry out studies of living conditions in the adopted villages, assess local problems and needs, explore and implement technological interventions, help improve the processes in the delivery of government schemes, and prepare action plans for the selected villages.
