Select the correct answer using the codes given below
Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment launched the Scheme for Economic Empowerment of DNTs (SEED) for the welfare of De-notified, Nomadic and Semi Nomadic Communities.
The four components of the Scheme for Economic Empowerment of DNTs are:
- Educational empowerment:A component of free Coaching for DNT Students has been envisioned for the educational empowerment of these communities.
- Health Insurance:It is most likely that members of DNT/NT/SNT communities have little or no access to medical facilities and other benefits available under the mainstream health policies.
- Facilitate livelihoods:The decline of traditional occupations of DNT/NT/SNT communities has exacerbated their poverty. A focus to support livelihood generation for these communities is required.
- Housing:At present, a very large number of families belonging to the DNT/NT communities are without permanent shelters. In view of their changing socio-economic scenario, a large number of DNT communities are trying to settle themselves and take to alternative professions.
