State Nodal Departments - VanDhan Vikas Karyakram

VDVK

The training component under the Mechanism for Marketing of Minor Forest Produce (MFP) through Minimum Support Price (MSP) & Development of Value Chain of Ministry of Tribal Affairs (MoTA) was modified as the Van Dhan Vikas Karyakram and the proposed scheme aims to provide enhanced livelihood and income generation for tribals.

Van Dhan Vikas Karyakram is an initiative targeting livelihood generation for tribals by harnessing the wealth of forest i.e. Van Dhan. The programme aims to tap into traditional knowledge & skill sets of tribals by adding technology & IT to upgrade it at each stage and to convert the tribal wisdom into a viable economic activity.

Under this scheme, tribal community owned MFP-centric multi-purpose Van Dhan Vikas Kendras are to be set-up in predominantly tribal districts. 

These Kendras act as common facility centres for procurement and value addition to locally available MFPs and skill-based handicrafts.

A typical Van Dhan Vikas Kendra  constitutes of 10 tribal Van Dhan Vikas Self Help Groups (SHG), each comprising of upto 30 MFP gatherers or tribal handicraft artisans i.e. about 300 beneficiaries per Kendra. The initiative is expected to provide enhanced livelihood to about 25 lakhs tribal gatherers in the country.
