Village Grain Bank
The concept of VGB came into being with a view to safeguard the poor tribal people against starvation during any natural calamity or lean season when they do not have any earning opportunity and hence no income to obtain even their daily food requirement. Such people in need of food may borrow food grain from their village grain bank set up within the locality and again repay back when they start earning. This Central Govt. scheme is being implemented by WBTDCC Ltd. through the LAMPS since 2002-03.
