Rural Development is defined as improving the living standards of the masses of the low income population residing in rural areas . Rural development in general is used to denote the actions and initiatives taken to improve the standard of living in non-Urban neighbour hoods , countryside, and remote villages. These communities can be exemplified with a low ratio of inhabitants to open space. Agricultural activities may be prominent in this case whereas economic activities would relate to the primary sector, production of foodstuffs and raw materials . Definitions According to World Bank rural development is a strategy designed to improve the economic and social life of a specific group of people by extending the benefits of development to the poorest among those who seek livelihood in the rural areas. According to Finance Ministry rural development is systematic and integrated use of national resources enabling every person to engage himself in production and social useful occupation and earn income that will meet at least the basic needs

As a strategy, it is designed to improve the economic and social well-being of a specific group of people – the rural poor. As a discipline, it is multi-disciplinary in nature, representing an intersection of agricultural, social, behavioural, engineering and management sciences .

Rural Development Policies and Strategies:

Rural Development Policies and Strategies Growth Oriented Strategy Welfare Oriented Strategy Responsive Strategy Integrated or Holistic Strategy

Community Development Programme (CDP):

Community Development Programme (CDP) The Community Development Programme was launched in India on 2nd October, 1952 with 55 Community Development Projects (CDPs0. Each project had an operational area of about 400 to 500 square miles, comprising 300 villages and a population of about 2 lakhs. The project area was divided into 3 development blocks, each consisting of about 100 villages and a population of 60 to 70thousand . The project was headed by a Project officer, and a number of subject matter Extension Officers in the disciplines of agriculture, animal husbandry, cooperation, industries, rural engineering, social education etc. each project had about 60 multi-purpose. Village Level Workers (VLWs), one for each group of 5 to 10 villages. They were government appointed extension functionary at the lowest level. Who were nearest to the people. The multipurpose VLWs were common to the development departments engaged in rural work.

Concepts of Community Development:

Concepts of Community Development The term Community Development appears to have originated from Cambridge in England. In 1948, the Cambridge Summer Conference on African Administration recommended this term defining it as a movement designed to promote better living for the whole community with the active participation , if possible on the initiative of the community, but if this initiative is no forthcoming spontaneously , by the use of techniques for arousing and stimulating it in order to secure its action and enthusiastic response to the movement. The United Nations (1956) defined Community Development as the process by which the efforts of the people themselves are united with those of the governmental authorities to improve the economic , social and cultural conditions of the communities, to integrate these communities into the life of the nation and to enable them to contribute fully to national progress. Community Development has also been defined as a balanced programme for stimulating the local potential for growth in every direction. Its promise is of reciprocal advance in both wealth and welfare, not on the basis of outside charity but by building on the latent vitality of the beneficiaries themselves with the minimum of outside aid.

Development Programmes Intensive Agricultural District Programme (IADP):

Development Programmes Intensive Agricultural District Programme (IADP) Intensive Agricultural District Programme popularly known as Package Programme “ Was thus launched in the country from Kharif 1960. On a pilot basis in seven selected districts. The Central idea behind the IADP was that increased agricultural productivity shall lead to economic growth , which shall bring welfare to the society. The programme aims at combining technical know-how, credit and production supplies for stepping up agricultural production. The method adopted in IADP was to demonstrate the feasibility of increased agricultural production rapidly by concentrating all factors of production at the same time in an integrated action programme in selected areas fulfilling optimum conditions. Agriculture, like all other industry needs high degree of investment before it can be self-generating and self-financing.

distinctive features of IADP:

distinctive features of IADP Through factors of production were known earlier, they were not provided simultaneously, timely and adequately. Essential input like fertilizers etc. to be made available 100 percent of the requirement. Previously credit was available only to the credit-worthy farmers. In this programme, any farmer who joins the programme has a farm production plan and has the potential to get increased yield, will be given credit. In selected areas more agricultural and cooperative staff will be posted. Composite demonstrations instead of single factor demonstrations. Economics of the demonstrations will be worked out. Periodical training of staff

Drought Prone Areas Programme (DPAP):

Drought Prone Areas Programme (DPAP) The Drought Prone Areas Programme, formerly known as Rural Works Programme, was initiated in 1970-71 as a Non-Central Sector Scheme. Seventy –four districts have been identified as drought prone and they have been grouped under 54 units. The programme aimed at mitigating the severity of scarcity conditions by executing rural works to generate employment. The programme was sought to be reoriented on the basis of an area development approach, and was redesigned as the Drought Prone Area Programme (DPAP) at the time of the mid-term appraisal of the Fourth Five Year Plan. The programme was confined to that area which was originally taken up under the Rural Works Programme.

Panchayat Raj Institutions in Implementation of Rural Development Programmes:

Panchayat Raj Institutions in Implementation of Rural Development Programmes The passage of the Constitution (73rd Amendment) Act, 1992 marks a new era in the federal democratic set up of the country and provides Constitutional status to the Panchayati Raj Institutions. The Act which came into force on 24 April, 1993 stipulates that Panchayats shall be given powers and authority to function as institutions of self-government .

The Panchayats receive funds from three sources – (i) local body grants, as recommended by the Central Finance Commission, (ii) funds for implementation of centrally-sponsored schemes, and (iii) funds released by the state governments on the recommendations of the State Finance Commissions . Panchayati Raj is a system of governance in which gram panchayats are the basic units of administration. It has 3 levels: village, block and district. At the village level, it is called a Panchayat , at the taluk level it is Taluk Panchayat and at district level it is Zilla Panchayat . Village Panchayat It is a local body working for the good of the village. The number of members usually ranges from 7 to 31; occasionally, groups are larger, but they never have fewer than 7 members. Gram Sabha Gram sabha is constituted by all members of a village over the age of 18 years.

Problems / Constraints in Implementation of Rural Development Programmes:

Problems / Constraints in Implementation of Rural Development Programmes Inadequate Coordination As per the Guidelines all the developmental programmes in the rural areas are to be planned / formulated by DRDA in corporation and coordination of other departments and financial institution, agencies of peoples representatives etc. It is often observed that these agencies, organization failed to maintain proper coordination among each other. All the agencies / organizations are trying theirbest to stick to their own principles and ideologies. In the process cooperation and coordination are not maintained. The Agencies responsible for the formulation, implementation and evaluation of the Rural Development Programme are required to maintain good coordination among them. Inadequate funds The rural development programmes require more capital investment. The Economic Sectors of rural areas remain more or less traditional. These sectors also adopt traditional methods of production . In order to attain rural development the transformation of technologies is required. The conditions of weaker section people are not improved even after 50 years of planned economic development . The upliftment of their socio-economic condition also require high dose of investment..

PowerPoint Presentation:

Leakage of benefits It is observed that, there is considerable leakage of benefits to non-target sectors and groups . Most of the rural development programmes are conceived to improve the Socio-economic condition of the weaker section like small, marginal farmers, agricultural and non agricultural labourers , rural artisans, scheduled castes, scheduled tribes and deprived women etc. It is observed that benefits are not properly reaching to theses classes. Low Sustaining Impact It is observed that a considerable number of rural developments programmes/schemes having no or little sustaining impact for changing the socio-economic status of the beneficiaries. The assets created from the credit assistance of financial institutions and subsidies of the development / administrative agencies are short lived (Particularly in case of livestock assets) failed to push the beneficiaries up on the scale of production and productivity. This is perhaps due to the existence of low or no development approach / thoughts. This factor again dominated by the lack of awareness about the programmes . Dominance of welfare over productivity In India, most of the rural development programmes are based on the basic welfare principles. These schemes are backed by both credit and subsidy components. Besides, development of infrastructure facilities is also emphasized under these programmes

PowerPoint Presentation:

It is also evident that provision of long term credit and based on the principle of write off by political parties also have adverse effect on the productivity of economic sectors. It is observed that the subsidy component is often extending up to 100 percent in some selected schemes and class of beneficiaries. This reduces the productivity motive and attitude of the beneficiaries. More Generalized Programme Rural Development Programmes have been conceived for the all round development of the rural areas. However, the rural development Programmes are launched in the context of general problems of the rural areas. It fails to give importance to some particular and area issues. The rural development programmers should be micro in nature and growth oriented based on real values
