Unnat Bharat Abhiyan

Unnat Bharat Abhiyan is a flagship programme of the government of India and is inspired by the vision of transformational change in rural development processes by leveraging knowledge institutions to help build the architecture of an Inclusive India. This was the dream of the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi that real India is residing in rural areas and their development must be our top priority. This mission is conceptualised as a movement to enable processes that connect institutes of higher education with local communities to address the development challenges of rural India through participatory processes and appropriate technological interventions for accelerating sustainable growth with available human and natural resources in the adopted villages. It also aims to create a virtuous cycle between society and an inclusive university system by providing knowledge and practices for emerging professions and to upgrade the capabilities of both the public and the private sectors.
