Shyama Prasad Mukherji Rurban Mission (SPMRM)
The Scheme seeks to stimulate local economic development, enhance basic services and create well planned Rurban Clusters. It seeks to develop cluster of villages while at the same time preserving and nurturing the essence of rural community life while focusing on equity and inclusiveness without compromising with the facilities perceived to be essentially urban in nature thus creating a cluster of ‘Rurban Villages’. It aims to bridge the rural-urban divide in economic, technology and services. It also seeks to lay emphasis on reduction of poverty and unemployment in rural areas, spread overall development in the region and attract investment in rural areas.
In Mizoram there are currently four (4) Rurban Clusters – Aibawk Cluster (11 villages), Thingsulthliah Cluster(15 villages), East Lungdar Cluster (9 villages) and Khawzawl Cluster(13 villages).
