Rural Business Hubs

Ministry of Panchayat Raj invites proposals for setting up Rural Business Hubs. This fund can be accessed for bridging critical gaps in local infrastructure like common facilities / pooling centres for farm products/minor equipment/ connectivity, etc.For raising plantations with long gestation period, labour compensation for preyielding phase can be supported. Ideally suited activities are those where production is decentralised (production by masses). Direct marketing of agri-produce, sourcing of fruit and vegetable, food processing, floriculture, Jatropha / bio-diesel crops, handloom, handicrafts, bio-mass based power generation, etc. can been taken up.

TePP supports innovations and RBH supports technology diffusion. TUCs can apply to set up RBH.
