Adibasi Mahila Sashaktikaran Yojna (AMSY)

 

AMSY is a micro credit project implemented by LAMPS since 2003-2004 for empowering the poor tribal women, offering loans as well as subsidy facilities on easy terms for poverty alleviation and generating self employment. The maximum project cost involved is Rs 50,000 with the provision for subsidy upto 50 percent, subject to a maximum of Rs 10,000. The loan is granted at an interest rate of only 3%. The AMSY covers schemes like sal leaf plates making, grocery, paddy husking, goatery, piggery, house dairy, and various such schemes suitable and cost effective for the tribals. Schemes under AMSY have proved to be highly effective for economic development of the poor tribals because the schemes are executed entirely by the tribal women who unlike their male counterpart, plan for the future. Technical trainings are also provided to facilitate proper implementation of the projects.

The National Scheduled Tribe Finance & Development Corporation has documented the achievement of AMSY in West Bengal as a significant part of their country-wide effort to highlight the success of their working in tribal upliftment. It is unfortunate to note that since the matching subsidy under TSP has of late been withdrawn from such a popular project, the project is in a dying process. 24,145 families (beneficiaries) have been brought under AMSY during the period from 2003-04 to 2010-2011 involving a total outlay of funds amounting to Rs.47.32 crores. Disbursement particulars of AMSY scheme are furnished below.
