The name of the group is suggested to be "Antara Swanirbhar Dal" which will be formed by collecting @ Rs 20/- per head from the group members

  • Periodic Meeting
  • Skill Training
  • Financial loans on low interest
  • Assistance in sale of produce.
  • To strengthen the bonding of the group, proper Capacity Building Training should be given.
  • Motivate the group members to involve in any kind of income generation activities.

Antara launched a Scheme of Community case management on Saturday, the 2nd February, 2008 to extend care & support to the very needy mentally challenged persons in the villages around Antaragram. Currently there are 25 patients enrolled in this programme.
