CSIR-Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI) is organising online training under the CSIR Integrated Skill Initiative for the benefit of SHGs and rural entrepreneurs who are interested in food processing.

National Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) was launched by the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India, and it envisages to alleviate rural poverty by enabling the poor households to access gainful self-employment and skilled wage employment opportunities, resulting in appreciable improvement in their livelihoods on a sustainable basis, through building strong grassroots institutions of the poor.

Under this programme, poor women have been mobilised to form their own institutions like Self Help Groups and higher order community institutions at village, panchayat, cluster, block as well as district levels to carry out various social activities and delivery of services. Activities of these community institutions include strengthening financial and livelihoods support services and imparting skills to the rural population.

Furthermore, Start-up Village Entrepreneurship Programme (SVEP), the sub-scheme under the Deendayal Antyodaya Yojana - National Rural Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NRLM) focusses on supporting small entrepreneurs, individual and group through various business support services as well as credit support. A large percentage of the enterprises supported through the various programmes of the MoRD support enterprise in the food processing sector.
