About the Book:-

Gram Panchayats have been mandated for the preparation of Gram Panchayat Development Plan (GPDP) for economic development and social justice utilizing the resources available to them. The GPDP planning process has to be comprehensive and based on participatory process which involves the full convergence with Schemes of all related Central Ministries / Line Departments related to 29 subjects enlisted in the Eleventh Schedule of the Constitution.  Most in the village live with no means of livelihood. Poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, & poor infrastructure are a big concern. The lack of primary health care facilities, along with gender disparity, high incidence of infant mortality, poor maternal health, child undernourishment are additional grave issues for the villages.  Rural development in general is used to denote the actions and initiatives taken to improve the standard of living in non-urban neighbourhoods, countryside, and remote villages. These communities can be exemplified with a low ratio of inhabitants to open space.  This study, carried out under the aegis of Natural Resources Data Management System (NRDMS) programme, attempts to address a wide range of issues concerning village development planning in India.
