» Directorate of Self-Help Groups & Self Employment (SHG&SE)
The Directorate of SHG&SE was established way back in June 2007 to act as the executive arm of the Department, especially to coordinate activities at the field level and act as the bridge between the Department and the field functionaries. At the State level, the Directorate has provision for a Director, two Deputy Directors and other support staff. In the districts, there is a post of the District SHG&SE Officr. At the Sub-division level, both for the urban local bodies and the blocks, the Sub-divisional Officers coordinate activities of the Directorate/ Department. There are contractually engaged SHG&SE Supervisors at the sub-divisions, ULBs and Blocks for day to day activities. In the Blocks, the SHGSE Supervisors work under direct guidance of the Block Development Officers. There are Prakalpa Sahayaks in the field who provide support to the enterpreneurs in seeking assistance under SVSKP against fixed project-linked incentives.
