With 75% of the people living in villages, the focus of the government has continuously been to improve and uplift the lives of the people living in rural parts of Sikkim. The consistent efforts and pro poor policies of the government have made remarkable strides in alleviating rural poverty. The poverty rate in Sikkim has come down by 33.43% in the past 22 years. With heightened efforts, the vision of the state government making Sikkim “Poverty Free State” by 2019 is well on its way of completion. The pace of overall growth also has accelerated over the last decade and today Sikkim stands proudly as a jewel in the crown of the country.The progress has been made because of the holistic approach towards development by the state government. Several milestones have been achieved in every sector including tourism, environment, power generation, empowerment, sanitation, housing, electrification, assuaging poverty, self reliance, rural connectivity and economic prosperity.
