Self Employment Scheme for Rehabilitation of Manual Scavengers(SRMS)

Published By : Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment | Publish Date : 02 Jan, 2007

This scheme was introduced in January 2007 with the objective to rehabilitate the remaining manual scavengers and their dependents in alternative occupations by March, 2009. However, as this could not be done by the target date, the Scheme was extended upto March, 2010, with a provision for the coverage of spill-over of beneficiaries even thereafter, if required. As per the updated number, reported by States/UTs, after launch of the Scheme, 1.18 lakh manual scavengers and their dependents in 18 States/UTs were identified for implementation of the Scheme.
