Rs 80,000 crore has been earmarked for the purpose under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan programme. The NGOs should voluntarily involve themselves in the process and drop outs should be brought back to the portals of the school. Rs 60,000 crore is allocated for National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme. Farmers can avail the benefits of the provision to initiate development measures in their respective fields,” he added.

Quick growth should be coupled with inclusive growth. Banking system should find their base firmly rooted in the rural areas.
