Telangana was the first state to execute the Shyama Prasad Mukherji Rurban Mission (SPMRM), which was started 4 years ago to encourage local commercial growth, provide basic utilities, and construct well-planned hubs.
The Shyama Prasad Mukherji Rurban Mission (SPMRM)
has the vision of 'developing groupings of settlements that maintain and cultivate the spirit of rural communal living with a concentrate on equity and inclusiveness without making compromises with centers perceived to be primarily urban in essence, thus generating a cluster of 'Rurban Villages
.' Large portions of the country's
rural areas are not stand-alone villages, but rather part of a cluster of communities that are relatively close to one another. These clusters often have the potential for expansion, have economic drivers, and benefit from locational and competitive advantages.
The SPMRM's goal
is to boost local economic
growth, provide basic services, and construct well-planned Rurban communities.
The following are the long-term goals of this Mission:-
- Overcoming the rural-urban divide—economic, technical, and infrastructure and services.
- Encouraging local economic growth with a focus on unemployment and inequality elimination in rural regions.
- Expanding Regional development.
- Increasing investment in rural regions.
