Assam State Urban Livelihoods Mission Society has been established in 2014 to implement DAY-NULM in Assam in compliance with the National Urban Livelihoods Mission formulated by the Government of India.
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 the 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 the implementation of DAY-NULM.
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 the formation of more CMMUs if the requirement for the same arises in the future.
