With the creation of Self-Help Groups, economic empowerment of women in Jammu and Kashmir is a reality now.

The J & K administration has taken many steps to promote women entrepreneurship especially in rural areas.

Government has also introduced many schemes to encourage women for entrepreneurship.

It is because of the efforts of the government within a short period of time, around six lakh women from the rural areas have been associated with 74,000 Self-Help Groups in Jammu Kashmir.

Government has intensified the women entrepreneurship movement by providing financial assistance without guarantees, training and necessary support so that Nari Shakti can contribute in the journey of Atma Nirbhar Jammu Kashmir, observed the Lt Governor.

Jammu and Kashmir is the second state/UT in the country after Andhra Pradesh, which has created a dedicated industrial estate for women entrepreneurs.

Krishi Sakhi and Pashu Sakhi Programmes have been launched under the Rural Livelihood Mission to make women economically independent.

The Lt Governor expressed hope that SARAS Aajeevika Mela will give renewed push to One District One Product initiative.
