Abstract:
There are no universally acceptable approaches when it comes for rural development. The term "rural development" means "over all development of rural areas" which includes improving the quality of life of rural people by way of providing them electricity, safe drinking water, education, health benefits, sanitation, communication and information technology, infrastructure etc. Rural development has been the most important issue in all discussions, when it comes to the economic development of the developing countries. Rural India comprises 73 percent of the country's population but its share in the total national income is less than 45 percent. A country like India which is considered to be one of the powerful nations along with USA and China, it's very unfortunate that rural areas of India are still deprived when it comes to development. And that's why this has been the biggest reason for the huge flow of man force shifting from rural to urban cities. Though government has initiated a number of schemes for the upliftment of the rural areas and communities but still there are certain lacuna's which are supposed to be looked forward. There are several schemes which are initiated by the Indian government, some of which have been successfully completed and some are still going on.
