he Rural Development in India is one of the most important factors for the growth of the Indian economy. India is primarily an agriculture-based country. Agriculture contributes nearly one-fifth of the gross domestic product in India. In order to increase the growth of agriculture. The Ministry of Rural Development in India is the apex body for formulating policies, regulations and acts pertaining to the development of the rural sector. Agriculture, handicrafts, fisheries, poultry, and diary are the primary contributors to the rural business and economy. The introduction of Bharat Nirman, a project set about by the Government of India in collaboration with the State Governments and the Panchayat Raj Institutions is a major step towards the improvement of the rural sector. The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act 2005 was introduced by the Ministry of Rural Development, for improving the living conditions and its sustenance in the rural sector of India.
Let us go to village. India had reached a turning point in its long and arduous struggle for socio-economic development. In the 21st century India continues to live in villages. This makes it obvious that any process of planning and development in India can hardly succeed without transferring its rural society. The approach to successive five year plans envisages ‘growth, equity, social justice, self-reliance, improved efficiency and productivity as its guiding principles. As a strategy to achieve these objectives, it calls for a ‘sharper focus on employment generation and poverty alleviation’ through rural development programmes. It is believed that provision of productive employment will help people to stand on their own feet and work with self-confidence and self-respect which will in turn help in people’s participation in developmental tasks. It is felt that information, education and training can play a critical role in creating awareness among the beneficiaries, equipping them with skills required in the process of being able to sustain their own up gradation and inculcating an attitude wherein they view themselves as part and planners of rural development Programme. We attempt to give the philosophy, policy and Programme intervention for rural development in India through our several awareness and camps.
Navjivan Foundation has an active rural development policy because this helps us to achieve valuable goals for our countryside and for the people who live and work there. India rural areas are a vital part of its physical make-up and its identity. Many of our rural areas face significant challenges. Some of our farming and forestry businesses still need to build their competitiveness. More generally, average income per head is lower in rural regions than in our towns and cities, while the skills base is narrower and the service sector is less developed.
