Jharkhand State Industrial Policy, 2001
On 15th November 2000, this Policy was enumerated to optimally utilise the available resources of the State in a planned manner and to mobilise the industrial development of the State. To achieve industrial growth, the districts of the State have been categorised into three categories, so as to capitalise the industrial potential through planned utilisation and development of natural and human resources and to gradually increase the employment opportunities.
Development of Women and Children in Rural Areas(DWCRA)
DWCRA had the main objective to improve the socio-economic status of the poor women in the rural areas by creating groups of women for income-generating activities on a self-sustaining basis. The main strategy adopted to make this successful under the programme was to facilitate access for poor women to employment, skill up gradation, training credit and other support services so that the DWCRA women as a group could take up income-generating activities for supplementing their incomes. It sought to encourage collective action in the form of group activities so that they can work better and was more sustainable than the individual effort. It encouraged the habit of thrift and credit among poor rural women to make them self-dependent.
The Scheme had been merged into Swarnajayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) with IRDP, TRYSEM etc. from April, 1999.
It was established to co-ordinate and facilitate management training for women groups for the World Bank Institute which was funded by Women’s Enterprise Management Training Outreach Program (WEMTOP). This training program aimed at imparting training to women on management of micro enterprises and to build capacity in NGOs to do enterprise.
