Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have signed a pact with the Ministry of Tribal Affairs to train tribals across the country in generating livelihood. The programme will run as part of Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA).
IIT-Delhi is the national coordinating institute (NCI) for the government’s flagship programme. Through the tie-up, the two aim to give exposure to tribal forest dwellers engaged in minor forest produces.
These people will be educated about newer processing technologies, product innovation, mentorship, transformational digital systems and handholding.
