New Delhi: Due to the efforts of the government, social and economic changes are taking place in the country at a fast pace, due to which half of the population is also benefiting. In Jharkhand, women of similar aspirational districts are becoming self-reliant (Atmanirbhar). The tribal and primitive tribe hill women of remote rural areas of Pakur made the leaf plate business a means of becoming self-reliant during the Corona period. Atmanirbhar Bharat: PM Modi sought the cooperation of scientists in realizing the dream of self-reliant India

Making a leaf plate changed the standard of living

These women are earning a good income by collecting Sal leaves from the forests, making plates from those leaves and selling them in weekly haat markets and hotels. Hundreds of rural women are associated with this business, this has not only changed their standard of living but has also improved their children’s upbringing.

Earlier, only leaves were sold

It is worth mentioning that Sal trees are largely present on the mountains of Littipada and Amdapara blocks of Pakur district of Santhal Pargana division. Till a few years ago, outside traders used to make huge profits by buying sal leaves very cheaply from the local people.

Self-reliance being made by making leaf plate itself

Seeing the prospect of business of leaf plates, the Rural Development Department formed a group of women through JSLPS and trained them to make leaf plates, after which the women themselves took the path of self-reliance by making leaf plates and selling them in the markets.

Apart from MNREGA, during Kovid, clusters have been identified to connect rural women with self-employment. He told that apart from giving training to some women groups to make leaf plates, they were also helped financially and mechanically so that they can grow their business and become self-reliant.

Advice being given to increase production

In this regard, Kuldeep Choudhary, Deputy Commissioner of Pakur, says that by identifying women who are associated with this business, they are providing better employment opportunities by providing them more advice. For this, instructions have been given to the concerned Block Development Officers, that as many types of mass such programs are held, their group can be supplied easily so that production can be made easy.

It is evident from these efforts of women that half the population living in the forests on the inaccessible mountains has shown that if given the opportunity, they too can become self-supporting and make an important contribution in the new construction of the society despite the dire circumstances of the Corona period.
