The State Urban Livelihood Mission has issued guidelines for the Diwali Fair, which will be held as part of the PM SVANidhi scheme. The fair aims to increase the income of street vendors, self-help groups, and individuals before the festival. All district magistrates have been directed to organize the fair in open spaces, providing sufficient space for parking, food stalls, swings, and cultural programs. The fair will be publicized in main markets through microphone announcements, and a chief nodal officer will be appointed at the district level to ensure proper execution of the event.
A committee under the district magistrates’ chairpersonship will organize the fair. Medical camps will also be set up for the families of street vendors and self-help group members, providing medical advice and medicines. Various competitions, including art, slogan writing, mehndi, rangoli, dance, singing, and cooking, will be organized to promote creativity and talent.
Under the PM SVANidhi scheme, the first, second, and third loan applications will be approved, and banks will set up stalls to distribute loans during the fair. Departmental stalls will also be set up to link vendors with the PM SVANidhi scheme and other eight schemes for vendor profiling and more. Additionally, vendors who have actively engaged and conducted maximum digital transactions with maximum cashback in the cultural program will be honored.
Overall, the Diwali Fair organized under the PM SVANidhi scheme aims to provide a platform for street vendors, self-help groups, and individuals to increase their income before the festival. The fair will offer various activities, competitions, and opportunities for vendors to access loans and link with relevant schemes. It is expected to be a vibrant and beneficial event for all participants.
