Decentralised Planning in India

S.C. Sharma (Author) Jai Prakash (Author) Anita Gupta (Author)
Synopsis Need for decentralised planning in India has been emphasised for a long time. The large size of the country, the uneven resource endowment, the highly differentiated nature of the society in terms of language as well as institutions, the varying levels of social and economic development in different areas have made the plea for decentralised planning a weighty one. In order to make the planning more viable, and also in order to make the various five year plans really a people's plans, it would be more expedient if the plans are started from the grassroot level i.e. the lowest administrative unit. The decentralisation of more funds and powers to local bodies had also been on the national agenda since the beginning of planning machinery has been created even at the state level, not to mention the lower levels. District level planning which is essentially a micro-level planning or 'planning from below' means that like the central and the state plans every district should have its separate plan which should be based on the considerations of local resources, developmental requirements, real problems and the present state of economic development. The present analytical explosion would surely help the planners, researchers and policy makers for district development planning. The study proves the hypothesis that better the understanding of the variety of constraints and considerations which are into integration and coordination in planning and implementation of various development schemes, greater will be the utility of schemes in the context of the development.
