Tripura's Path to Self-Reliance: Government Launches Community Support
Government Extends Economic Security Initiatives to Remote Communities in Tripura.
TRIPURA, November, 03 2023: In a significant step toward bolstering economic security and self-reliance within Tripura, the government has introduced a series of initiatives aimed at extending central and state government programs to underserved communities in remote areas.

During the inauguration of a newly constructed shelter house at the Mohanpur Municipal Council in West Tripura district within the Mohanpur Block Complex, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Ratanlal Nath underscored the government's commitment to building a self-reliant Tripura by harnessing the potential of its citizens and communities. To achieve this, the minister stressed the importance of making these programs accessible to those in remote regions.

Furthermore, Minister Ratanlal Nath announced the state government's intention to replicate the success of these shelter houses in various subdivisions. It is noteworthy that eight such shelter houses, including the one in Mohanpur, have already been built. These facilities are designed to empower self-help groups and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to create income and job opportunities by managing and operating the shelter houses.

The inauguration ceremony was graced by the presence of notable dignitaries, including Mohanpur Municipal Council Chairperson Anita Debnath, Vice Chairperson Shankar Dev, Mohanpur Panchayat Samiti Chairman Reena Debbarma, Vice-Chairman Rakesh Deb, Urban Development department Officer Rajat Kanti Dey, and social worker Shyamal Debnath, among others. Subhash Datta, the SDM of Mohanpur sub-division, warmly welcomed the attendees.

It is worth noting that the newly constructed shelter house, equipped with 50 beds, was completed at a cost of Rs 1 crore 67 lakh 42 thousand. This valuable addition to the community's infrastructure is expected to play a significant role in supporting local residents and enhancing their economic prospects.
