Overview for Survey of Rural India: A Comprehensive Study of Gram Panchayat and Community Development Block (In 27 Volumes)
Integrated development of rural India is one of the challenging tasks for the Government of India. Although considerable progress has been made towards the socio-economic development of rural masses, yet much more remains to be achieved in new and emerging areas, such as telecommunication, transport, energy, physical infrastructure, e-governance, etc. An invaluable source of very wide and deep information—this publication (in 27 vols.) is a monumental work on rural India and rural-oriented initiatives undertaken by the country. The work draws upon painstakingly collected authentic and updated information, which has been meticulously presented through a standard format for each of the 6311 Community Development Blocks—specified rural area earmarked for the purpose of development administration, across different states and regions of the country. Concerned scholars, researchers and development practitioners will find the publication highly useful to know deeply about rural India. Present four vols. (Vol. 1 to 4) of the series (released so far) cover two major states of Southern India, namely, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka.
