  • The 'Gramin aajeevika parks' will be known as 'rural industrial parks' to develop gauthans as livelihood centers.

  • Some of the livelihood-related activities are producing vermi-compost, goat rearing, manufacturing incense sticks, dona-pattal (leaf plate) manufacturing, fish farming, egg production, and mushroom output.
  • Chhattisgarh has set up 8,404 gauthans of the 10,624 sanctioned. The state government is currently procuring cow dung at Rs 2 per Kg for making vermi-compost. Once the 300 parks are started the production will be increased.
