Adjustment of plans for self-reliance
Due to the heterogeneous geographical location of Jharkhand and lack of self employment in the village, migration has been a problem. On the other hand, during the Corona transition period, lakhs of migrant workers returned to their villages, which was a challenge for the government to provide employment. On the initiative of the Chief Minister, an initiative was taken to provide self-employment in the village itself, whose aim is to make the state self-reliant by increasing the production of milk, meat and eggs in the state. This will generate self-employment and additional household income through animal husbandry in rural areas and to increase the income of rural livestock farmers.
