The event was held at Kaddaiparichchan TRO Office in Muttur east.

Under the SIGIP a recipient family can select its self-employment tools. Thereafter the TRO enters the scene and pay the required money to the seller.

And also the TRO opens a savings account in the name of the recipient with initial deposit of six percent of the value of the cart, bull or any other item. This is to induce the recipient to save money thereafter from the proposed self-employment project, Mr.Kiruba said.
