Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Minister Narendra Singh Tomar inaugurated Saras Aajeevika Mela 2021 at Noida Haat yesterday. Minister of State for Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Kailash Choudhary was also present on the occasion.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Tomar said that the Ministry of Rural Development is working to include more women in Self Help Groups (SHGs). He said these SHGs played a vital role in increasing family income and improving quality of life.

Speaking about Prime Minister's call for self-reliant India, the minister said Atmanirbharta can't be achieved only by Government's schemes and efforts. He urged the empowered SHGs to come forward and help other SHGs to become Atmanirbhar.

The Saras Aajeevika Mela 2021 is being organized from 26th February to 14th March 2021 by the Ministry of Rural Development. More than 300 rural self-help groups and craftsman from 27 states are participating in the Mela.

The Mela will remain open from 11 AM to 8 PM daily.
