What is PURA

Posted on: November 16, 2006

PURA, Provision of Urban amenities in Rural Areas, is an idea of Hon. President A P J Abdul Kalam to fulfill the vision 2020, by making India a developed nation through the improved quality of the rural life.

As we know, villages are the heart of the nation. The main idea of PURA is to provide an opportunity for entrepreneurship and employment. Provision of PURA will generate large number of enterprises leading to employment generation in those areas. President tells students should start thinking of what sort of industry or service they can creat in a village cluster of their choice, which can generate employment opportunities for many and deliver value added products. Education system should also highlight the importance of entrepreneurship and prepare the students to get oriented towards setting up enterprises which will provide creativity, freedom, and the ability to generate wealth.

Once the PURA scheme gets operated there will be plenty of opportunities for the youth. Economic growth in the rural areas will certainly drive India towards developed nation in 2020.
