Deen Dayal Antyodaya Yojana (DAY) starts with an aim to uplift and empower the urban poor people by enhancing sustainable livelihood opportunities with the help of skill development. As we all know that “Make in India” is very important for the growth of our economy and the DAY-NULM project contributes to this by uplifting the people who are not financially stable and have no access to good opportunities. This scheme was launched under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation (HUPA). The government of India has made a provision of Rs.500 crore for the scheme.
The scheme is an amalgamation of the National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM) and National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM).
National Urban Livelihoods Mission (NULM) is renamed as Deen Dayal Antyodaya Yojana-(DAY-NULM). This scheme aims to eliminate poverty with extended coverage of 4041 cities and towns across India.
