On a sunny Friday morning of December 1994, three college teachers of a suburban city, guided by the obligation of social-debt repayment, were discussing the problem of eradication of illiteracy from the locality with the Sub-Divisional Officer (Civil) in his official residence. All problems and hurdles that stand between were discussed with the best possible remedial measures to be under-taken. One such perennial problem was acute poverty the rural people have inherited. Tagged with it is the socio-cultural condition of the people. The discussion revolved round the point that poverty is the main cause of all these- socio-cultural and economic condition that arises from ignorance, illiteracy, so-on and so-off. Hence without redressing this main problem any attempt to do-away with other subsidiary problems will only be too temporary to make any impact on the people. The group then decided to work for socio-economic development of the people with the economic agenda placed in the center place. For this they choose the Self-Help-Group (SHG) platform as an all-round and quick amelioration process.

Next few days were spent on giving concrete shape to this and the blue-print for an NGO was finalized. Thus came the auspicious day, 8th March,1995, of formation of an NGO At that time the name of the organization was GRAMIN VIKASH and later on it had taken the shape of GRAMIN which is acronym of Agency for Rural Income Generation and Management.
