The objective is to double the Farmers' Household income in a span of One Year. Crystallize the income streams of the Farmers' Household

The farmers work in the fields with mechanized farming and good inputs of seeds, fertilizer and water availability throughout the year

The women folk contribute separately by associating with self help groups through the efforts of Bandhan Bank and other such micro finance groups

The adult Children are suitably trained by skills development techniques and gainfully employed in the industries and civil contracting jobs nearby and thereby contribute to the household income separately and also help in advanced farming techniques to their parents and adults
