bHub (Bharat Hub) aims to improve quality of life of more than 85% rural population and 13 crore households. It will generate significant employment opportunities for rural youth, create immense business opportunities for industries in manufacturing, service and agriculture sector, thus unlocking enormous potential of rural India.
bHub will empower Rural India by upgrading three pre-existing establishments in villages of India.
- 2,50,000 secondary schools
- 1,80,000 PHCs
- 1,39,000 post offices
This being the core of bHub initiative, there will be focused efforts on enhancing their set up structurally and functionally. A standardized methodology will ensure uniformity throughout the nation, similar to the one nation-one ration card and Swachha Bharat with special emphasis on tribal areas.
bHubs will be appealing, eco-friendly and equipped with essential modern technology & facilities
bHub is highly feasible because:
- Pre-existing establishments will be utilized to drive the initiative
- No new requirement of land
- Extended support from the villagers, as it will benefit them in current scenario as well as future
- More than 76% villages are connected by road
- More than 94% villages are electrified
Value proposition of bHub
Around the three pre-existing establishments, we can create a Warehouse (Godown), Cold Storage (if required), provision for Commodity Exchange, a Community Kitchen for mid-day meal, Customized Center for Vocational Training, Recreation Center (Yoga), Landscape (tree/herbal plantation & water conservation) and an Open Fitness Gym & Veterinary Center at each block.
What will be our Role?
Communicate the bHub concept to the Government, Policy Makers, Corporate and especially to the Villagers and Non-Resident Villagers (NRV). We believe that the bHub is the realization of our existing relationship with the rural and corporate India for last 25 years.
Options for implementation
Government + NRV/ Government/ Government + Corporate/ PPP/ BOT/ Bonds/ CSR (for example Pharma companies for PHCs, Nationalized/ Private Banks for post offices). The bHub project can be implemented successfully if our Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji make an appeal to the Non-Resident Villagers (NRV), Philanthropists along with the Chief Ministers, Central and State ministers, MPs, MLAs/MLCs, Media, Intellectuals, Corporate & Celebrities to build/renovate and maintain/upgrade, one of these three pre-existing establishments. With this synergetic approach, bHub project will be completed in 1,000 working days. A MoU (Government + NRV) will be signed for the same and appropriate credit will be given inside the premises.
Option 1 – Implementation of bHub in ALL 5,80,000 establishments
Option 2 – Implementation of bHub in 85,000 feeder villages of India, each of which caters to 4 to 13 adjoining villages. The PHCs in these feeder villages will have minimum 2 ambulances
Option 3 – Implementation of bHub in 6,000+ talukas/tehsils of India. This will need minimum 5 ambulances & free conveyance to students & senior citizens
