Policy

"Womens self-help groups can act as farmer producer groups to access credit, seeds, fertilizers and pesticides. The National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM)  provides for  this. The benefits of dairy programmes mainly go to women as they perform the major labour  though generally, I agree, more women-centric  schemes are needed.  It will be good to introduce gender budgeting as this will help departments evolve more gender-centric provisions." (May, 2013).
