FROM DEF ON THE FIELD
Assam has been providing India and the rest of the world with high quality tea for the last 150 years now. Any visitor going to Assam will experience the aroma and savour the unique malty flavour of Assam tea. Among the 140 tea estates of Barak Valley, Rosekandy Tea Estate has made a place of distinction for its good management, healthy relationship with labourers and also for its social obligation. The estate has been known for the production of best quality green leaf tea selling 800,000 kg annually in the valley market.
DEF has started a training programme with 50 rural weavers and artisans on digital skills and employment in four states to enable them to explore and connect with the digital world and to augment their earnings by leveraging digital connectivity. Five groups have done their after-orientation programme and completed all the five modules in June 2022. The aim of this digital skilling is to build the capacity of the entrepreneurs to access information and stay connected with the outside world.
