The Model is developed envisioning Mahatma Gandhi’s idea of ‘Gram Swaraj’ and PURA (Providing Urban Amenities to Rural Areas) of the late President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. It is an amalgamation of people, technology, traditions, skills, and entrepreneurship spirit coming together to make sustainable development of the villages happen by helping the villages become financially viable, socially equitable, and eco-friendly.
