Sankalp se Siddhi” - Village & Digital Connect Drive. Launched to activate the Van Dhan Vikas Kendras

100 villages in each region and 1500 villages within the country are going to be covered within the next 100 days. 

Following the success of the Village and Digital connect initiative during which TRIFED’s regional officials across the country visited identified villages with a big tribal population and supervised the implementation of the varied programs and initiatives earlier in 2021, TRIFED under the Ministry of Tribal Affairs has now launched “Sankalp se Siddhi” - Village & Digital Connect Drive. ranging from April 1, 2021, this 100 day drive will entail 150 teams (10 in each region from TRIFED and State Implementation Agencies/Mentoring Agencies/Partners) visiting ten villages each. 100 villages in each region and 1500 villages within the country are going to be covered within the next 100 days. the most aim of this drive is to activate the Van Dhan Vikas Kendras in these villages.Among all of TRIFED’s initiatives that are put in situ to assist the disadvantaged tribal sections of the society, the Scheme, Mechanism for Marketing of Minor Forest Produce (MFP) Through Minimum Support Price (MSP) & Development useful Chain for MFP’ that gives MSP to gatherers of forest produce and introduces value addition and marketing through tribal groups and clusters and Van Dhan Vikas Kendras has found widespread acceptance across the country. Especially during the pandemic in 2020, this scheme has emerged as a panacea for the tribals.

The objective of the MSP for MFP scheme is to determine a framework for ensuring fair prices for the tribal gatherers, primary processing, storage, transportation, etc. while ensuring the sustainability of the resource base addressing the issues tribals face like perishable nature of the produce, lack of holding capacity, lack of selling infrastructure, exploitation by middlemen, and timely government intervention. Rs 200 crore Sales during the subsequent 12 months is targeted as a results of this initiative once the VDVKs are activated in these 1500 villages. 

The visiting teams also will identify locations and shortlist potential VDVKs for clustering as TRIFOOD, and SFURTI units as larger enterprises. they're going to also identify tribal artisans and other groups and empanel them as suppliers in order that they will have access to larger markets through the Tribes India network – both physical outlets and TribesIndia.com.

It is expected that Sankalp Se Siddhi will aid in effecting an entire transformation of the tribal ecosystem across the country.
