Institutionalising PRI – Kudumbashree Convergence

Thus the context was set for convergence by the People's Plan Movement, the recommendations of the three-member task force, and the design and campaign mode of expansion of the community organisation network adopted by the mission.  The three factors that contributed to the institutionalisation of convergence came up from the State government as well as from the Kudumbashree’s State Mission. The three factors were the following.

  • The State government’s recognition of Kudumbashree’s role in local level planning through Plan Guidelines
  • Kudumbashree Mission’s attempts in strengthening convergence.
  • Kudumbashree role in Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM).
