Integrated Rural Development Program

The Integrated Rural Development Program (IRDP) was launched by the Government of India during 1978 and implemented during 1980. The aim of the program is to provide employment opportunities to the poor as well as opportunities to develop their skill sets so as to improve their living conditions. The program is considered one of the best yojanas to do away with poverty related problems by offering those who fell below the poverty line the necessary subsidies in tandem with employment opportunities.


Objective of the Integrated Rural Development Program

The objective of Integrated Rural Development Program is to help families who live below the poverty line to enhance their state of living and to empower the poor by helping them develop at every level. The program’s objectives are met by providing productive assets and inputs to its target groups. The assets, which could be in the primary, secondary or tertiary sector are provided as financial assistance to these families in the form of government subsidies as well as loans or credit from financial institutions.
Beneficiaries of the Integrated Rural Development Program

The beneficiaries of this program are as follows:

Rural artisans

From this group SC/ST candidates, women and differently abled people are guaranteed subsidies of 50%, 40% and 3% respectively. First priority is also given to those among this group who have been assigned the ceiling surplus land while the Green card holders who fall under the category of free bonded labourers and family welfare programmes are also given first priority.
