Project Description


Annual Report of activities under Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) in Zone V during 2018-19


The Tribal Sub Plan (TSP) was implemented by 10 KVKs in zone x during 2018-19, 6 from Andhra Pradesh ( Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam (BCT), Visakhapatnam (Kondempudi), West Godavari (V.R.Gudem), East Godavari ( Pandirimamidi) and Prakasam (Darsi)) and 4 from the state of Telangana ( Adilabad, Nalgonda (Kampasagar), Khammam (Wyra) and Kothagudem). The activities of the KVKs implementing TSP have been covered under four major thematic areas viz., Agri-service center, Micro-enterprises and Skill development training and aim at bridging the gap in socio-economic development between tribal farmers and others. The review workshop of KVKs implementing TSP was held at Hyderabad on 23rd October, 2018 to review the achievements of the centers and to give a direction for better implementation of the interventions of TSP. The KVKS were suggested to adopt tribal village(s) in their operational mandals as DFI villages and develop base line data of households as on 2015-16. More focus was emphasized on skill training programmes and establishment physical assets / micro-enterprises that would ensure income and livelihood security to tribal farmers, youth and women. The 10 KVKs implementing TSP conducted 30 skill training programmes benefitting 868 beneficiaries. A total of 1498 physical assets / micro-enterprises were created ensuring additional income to 2351 beneficiaries.
