Activities : Service in Rural and Tribal Areas : 2016-17

5 months ago by in News, Service Tagged: ,

Rural and tribal welfare work is accomplished in three ways:

    • through our centres located in rural and tribal areas;
    • through our urban centres which have taken up development projects in rural and tribal areas; and
    • Through our educational and medical institutions in semi-urban areas, where rural people form a significant percentage of the beneficiaries.


The Math and the Mission spent a sum of Rs. 70.26 crore for rural and tribal development work, apart from the huge expenditure incurred by the educational and medical institutions located in rural and tribal areas.
