National Rural Economic Transformation Project (NRETP)


NRETP will build on existing work done in intensive blocks in NRLM/NRLP and help convert the initial investments made in these blocks to be “transformed” into economic clusters. Thus the project clearly will not be starting from ground zero for both the entrepreneurship as well as the value chain agenda. The project will be supporting existing households which have started the micro-entrepreneurship pathway to graduate to become part of the economic cluster into higher size and market segment

Goal: The National Rural Economic Transformation Project will bring out economic transformation by

  1. Undertaking interventions in farm and non-farm inclusive value chains and enterprise development
  2. Promoting credit linkage, customized financial products and delivery of financial services and by
  3. Providing technical support to select economic clusters under Mission Antyodaya for livelihoods diversification and promotion.

NRTEP is proposed to implement in 36 blocks in 9 districts of Rajasthan, where significant progress particularly in the areas of social mobilization; institution building and mobilization of community saving, where project targets under Institution Building have been achieved.
