DAY-NULM: Implementation Structure in Assam
The National Urban Livelihoods Mission has a three-tier interdependent structure (at national, state and city levels) for implementation of the programme. These tiers of DAY-NULM are closely interlinked and guided by the common objective of promoting sustainable livelihoods of the poor and work with the goal of eradication of urban poverty and empowerment of the urban poor.
At the national level, the National Urban Livelihoods Mission (DAY-NULM) has been established as a society registered under the appropriate law. A Mission Director appointed by the Government of India is looking after all aspects of implementation of DAY-NULM. The National Mission Management Unit (NMMU), a dedicated support team at national level, was also established to support Mission Director in implementation and monitoring of the DAY-NULM.
A State Level Committee (Governing Council and Executive Committee) was notified by the Government of Assam in 2014 and the Assam State Urban Livelihoods Mission Society (ASULMS) has been established to implement DAY-NULM in Assam. The Assam State Urban Livelihoods Mission Society (ASULMS) is a registered body and the Rules & Regulations have been formulated. The State Mission Management Unit (SMMU), a dedicated support team at the state level, has been established to support the State Mission Director, ASULMS in the implementation and monitoring of DAY-NULM at the state level. Similarly City Mission Management Units (CMMUs) have been established for 25 cities so far. There is provision for formation of more CMMUs, if the requirement for the same arises in the future.
