(NRuM) National Rurban Mission

Apart from this, in the period 2001-2011, the rural population has increased by 12% and during the same period, 2279 units have increased in the total number of villages.

These groups generally describe potential potential for development, receive economic drivers and local benefits and competitive advantages.

As far as practicable, the groups of villages will adhere to the administrative convergence units of the village panchayats and will be within the same block / tehsil for administrative convenience.
