Initiatives in Rural Development
Rural India, which accounts for nearly three fourths of the India's population
is characterized by low income levels which are inadequate to ensure a quality of
life compatible with physical well being of common man.
District Administration in accordance with the policies of the Central and State governments,
is responsible at the grassroots for launching a frontal attack on rural poverty through various
programmes which endeavour to reach out to the last and most disadvantaged
sections of society, provide them with avenues of employment and to
improve infrastructure relating to their life-supporting systems.
