In order to enable the poor and vulnerable urban poor household’s access to gainful self-employment and skilled wage employment opportunities under National Urban Livelihood Mission (NULM), Haryana Government has decided to enhance the scope of NULM from 80 Urban Local Bodies to 86 Urban Local Bodies.
Haryana Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal has approved this proposal of State Urban Development Authority.
Giving information on this, a spokesman of State Urban Development Authority said that the State has constituted six more Municipal Committees of Sadhaura, Ismailabad, Jakhal-Mandi, Kundli, Sisai and Bass. As NULM being only one scheme or programme to address the livelihood issues of urban poor, thus the components of this Mission would be implemented in six newly constituted Municipal Committees.
He said that the components included Social Mobilization and Institutional Development for the formation of Self Help Groups, Employment through Skill Training and Placement, Self Employment Programme for individual and groups, Shelter for Urban Homeless, Support to Urban Street Vendors and Capacity Building and Training.
He said that the scheme is being run with an objective to reduce poverty and vulnerability of the urban poor households. NULM is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme, which is being implemented by the States/Union Territories on 60:40 sharing basis. This has resulted in an appreciable improvement in their livelihoods on a sustainable basis.
