The Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation had launched the National Urban Livelihood Mission on 23 September in the year 2013.
National Urban Livelihood Mission mainly focuses on reducing poverty and vulnerability existing in the urban poor households by giving them access and opportunity for self-employment and skilled wage working opportunities. The mission provides necessary shelter and other essential needs to the urban people in a phased manner. It is concerned about streets vendors from urban areas and ensures them with social security and suitable spaces by increasing their marketing opportunities.
National Urban Livelihood Mission has brought development in the urban life of Assam by taking different initiatives. Earlier at the beginning of this year, under the scheme of the National Urban Livelihood Mission, the Doomdooma Municipal Board had organized Bhogali Mela at the Self-help Groups Training Centre in the Jogendra Nath Deka road. In the mela different self-help groups took part and sold their Bihu pithas and larus.
