Transforming Aspirational Districts Programme (TADP)
Launched by Government of India, TADP is an ambitious national effort to transform the backward districts of India in a time-bound manner, improving development outcomes aligned with Sustainable Development Goals 2030. The programme aims to quickly and effectively transform these districts. Health & Nutrition, Education, Agriculture & Water Resources, Financial Inclusion & Skill Development, and Basic Infrastructure comprise the programme’s core areas of focus. Ministry of Home Affairs is the nodal Ministry for coordinating the development intervention in the most challenging 35 Left Wing Extremism (LWE) affected districts in India. Transforming Rural India Foundation (TRIF) is supporting the MHA in the implementation of the programme.
The programme plans to setup small cells with the State Government, to support implementation of the Transforming Aspirational Districts Programme. The State Cells will support concerned districts in implementing the TADP Plan. They will identify cross- cutting issues relating to policy, implementation challenges and sectoral support. The Cells will act as a secretariat for all the convergence efforts among the key departments at the state level, for ensuring successful implementation of the TADP. The Cells will also follow-up on all district level tasks relating to the programme.
