A lot of the gujarati road transport system is still in its infancy, with most of the country still not being covered by the state transport network.
This is due to the lack of funding from the government.
But a new initiative from the Centre for Rural Development (CRD) has given the gujjar a chance to get on the road.
The CRD, along with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MRH), launched the Gujjar Gateway to Help the Rural People (GGT) project in the state of Rajasthan in August this year.
It aims to connect the remote and rural areas of the state to the national highway network by 2019.
The aim is to ensure that the gujjars can move freely between rural areas, including those bordering the national capital.
The gujawar road transport is a vital lifeline for the rural poor.
“This project is a long-term plan and the gujabaras are the backbone of the rural economy.
In the rural areas they have an important role to play,” said CRD Minister of Rural Development and Urban Development Prakash Jain.
“This project will give a boost to the gujuar economy.
It will also help the rural people in their journey towards employment,” he said.
According to the CRD’s plan, the gujiwal will have a daily turnover of about Rs. 5,000, which will help in reducing the poverty in the region.
The gujjawar is the main mode of transport between the north and south.
In this area, it is also used for moving people from one part of the district to another, which is one of the major challenges faced by the gujriwal in the remote areas of Rajsamand.
A person travelling on a gujra can have to walk for several hours to reach his destination, according to the minister.
He said that this was the reason why the gujeera are often stuck in a rural area.
“In some parts of Rajamand, people are not able to walk freely because the roads are not paved and they have to cross the river on foot,” said the minister adding that people were often left stranded in the mountains of the region by the lack in infrastructure.
A majority of the population of Rajasht and Pangam districts are under the poverty line, according the official census data.
The government has said that around half of the estimated 1.75 crore population in the country is in poverty, while the average income in the rural and rural poor sections is just Rs. 25,000 per month.
“The gujiwals are very important for the people of the remote region.
They make up the backbone for the gujaars in the countryside.
They are the lifeline in their daily journey.
They feed the people in the villages,” said Naveen, an engineer in Pangan district.
“There are many people who cannot even afford to feed themselves and they are very vulnerable.
The people are afraid to come to villages and there is no one who will help them,” he added.
The project has also raised awareness of the need for better infrastructure.
“The gujeas are also a major source of revenue for the government in the district.
The Government is working on the construction of the Gujjars Gateway,” said Jain, adding that the project has already started.
He added that the government has also initiated the construction works of a helipad in the city of Baghpur to provide better services for the poor.
