The Government of Andhra Pradesh has been implementing many welfare programmes and development schemes with a view to empower the rural poor through creating additional income by improving their productivity. Further with a view to minimizing drudgery, improving product/service quality with the help of modernizing the process of operations, Government have decided to Re-launch ADARANA scheme with the ultimate aim of contributing to increased income levels and to improve the living standards of the practicing artisans in Particular and all the BC communities in General.

The Population belonging to Backward classes in the state pursuing traditional occupations such as cattle and sheep rearing, toddy tapping, earth works, fishing, weaving, goldsmithy, blacksmithy, brasssmithy, carpentry, stone carving, laundry, pottery, oil pressing, basketry, hair dressing, tailoring and dyeing fall under 125 communities listed in the State list of Backward Classes. Further, there are many of the BC communities without the traditional activities are practicing Agriculture and allied activities. Even many of the age-old practicing artisans diversified from their traditional activities and are into Agriculture and allied activities.

Adarana being the flagship scheme for the Backward classes, aims to modernize their tools and technology. The Managing Director, APBCCFC Ltd., in his letter cited has proposed to relaunch the Adarana scheme under the name ADARANA II.

Government after careful consideration of the proposal hereby issue the following guidelines for implementation of Adarana scheme.


To provide financial assistance to the artisans belonging to Backward Classes for acquiring improved modern tools and gadgets for sustainable Income Generating Activity and economic development
