Livelihood Mission and Transfer of Technology
 
The present elected Council of the MAC is putting utmost importance to livelihood centric schemes in order to fight poverty and rural unemployment; and to trigger economic growth. It has been evaluated that land, although flood prone, are available in abundance during the winter. But, despite this available land resource, there is exodus of rural youths to various cities for job. This has been caused primarily due to lack of information, technology, entrepreneurship and skill; and, secondarily due to lack of fund.

 
 
 

Therefore, MAC has drawn a Livelihood Mission with a clear approach to motivate and organize the rural youths and other farmers on one hand and to facilitate transfer of technology from scientific and professional institutions. A series of workshops and awareness camps have been held at different places with experts/scientists and resource persons from the following institutions:

» Assam Agricultural University
» Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Dhemaji
» Regional Agricultural Research Station, North Lakhimpur.
