About UBA

Unnat Bharat Abhiyan (UBA) is motivated by the idea of bringing about transformative change in rural development processes by using institutions knowledge to assist in the creation of an inclusive India’s architecture. The goal is to establish a virtuous loop between society and an open academic system by offering knowledge and techniques for growing professions, as well as to improve the skills of both the public and private sectors in responding to rural India’s development requirements. The current policy environment encourages national entities to adopt villages and develop relevant technology.
