Nearly 66% of these units are located in rural areas and about 80% of them are family-based enterprises supporting livelihood rural household and minimizing their migration to urban areas. These units largely fall within the category of micro enterprises. So to promote such micro enterprises, PM FME scheme has been started which would even be beneficial for employment.
