Tirtha Rural Institute strongly believes that rural prosperity
will not come to a reality unless we promote entrepreneurship
among rural masses. With the advent of new economic policies such
as privatization, liberalization and globalization, the rural
economy has been shattered with large-scale production and
wide-distribution practices. Added to this, prevailing drought
conditions over several successive years have further intensified
the plight of the farmers. However, rural markets have been
undergoing a dramatic change with the influx of many a new product
and service into rural areas, giving rise to consumerism. In this
scenario, the best solution for rural empowerment could be nothing
but creation of entrepreneurial culture among rural masses. This
initiative would not only create self-employment and employment
opportunities among rural masses but also arrest rural migration
to urban areas. In this direction the philosophy and initiatives
of the Institute are as follows.
