Assam’s Mukhyamantri Mahila Udyamita Abhiyaan

Assam’s Mukhyamantri Mahila Udyamita Abhiyaan:

The Assam government introduced the Mukhyamantri Mahila Udyamita Abhiyaan (MMUA), a financial support scheme aimed at empowering rural women entrepreneurs.

  • This initiative carries unique conditions, particularly focusing on the number of children women can have to qualify for the benefits.
  • The MMUA scheme is designed to foster the development of rural women who are part of self-help groups, transforming them into “rural micro-entrepreneurs” with a target annual income of Rs 1 lakh per member.
  • General and OBC women: Limited to three children to qualify for the scheme.
  • STs and SCs: Allowed up to four children to avail benefits.
  • Moran, Motok, and ‘Tea Tribes’: Subject to a four-child cap.
  • In addition to child limitations, beneficiaries must fulfil two other conditions:
  • If beneficiaries have girl children, they must be enrolled in school.
  • For non-school-going age girls, a signed undertaking for future enrollment is required.
  • Beneficiaries must ensure that trees planted under the government’s tree plantation drive, Amrit Brikshya Andolan, are surviving.
