Due to its complex geographic conditions and peculiar developmental needs, people of this region felt neglected as a part of the larger entity of Uttar Pradesh. Since its emergence as a separate state Uttaranchal is faced with numerous developmental challenges.

The book provides an indepth understanding of the major developmental issues and problems of Uttaranchal. It also throws light upon the possible developmental strategies, needs and priorities of the state.
