Beekeeping has been carried out across many generations in India. It is ideally suited to rural areas and uses only the available local resources which otherwise go waste. It requires very low investment and skills. This Industry has the potential to offer direct employment to lakhs of people especially hill dwellers, tribal and farmers. Prime Minister of India viewed this opportunities and advised the authorities to explore the possibilities to create employment in Tribal regions and Left Wing Effected (LWE) areas, Backward Districts of the country and announced to take up mass honey production as Sweet Kranti (Sweet Revolution). Thus Honey Mission was launched August 2017 in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for ‘Sweet Revolution’.
Beekeeping is the raising and caring for honeybees so that honey can be harvested from them.
Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) under Ministry of MSME is the implementing Agency of Honey Mission.
