Here attempt has also been made to present the temporal dimensions of policies and objectives being adopted, extended and/or modified after reviewing the needs of identified target area and/or target groups. Second part attempts to analyse the trend of rural development programmes being implemented in the region with their changing philosophy and composition from Community Development Programme (CDP), Small Farmers Development Agencies (SFDA) to Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP). This part of the book encompasses the block level analysis of rural development programmes being implemented and attempts to understand the block-wise and programme-wise proportion of beneficiaries. First half of the third part of the study has been so designed to have the first hand information on the basis of village and household questionnaires especially developed for the purpose, not only have helped in evaluating the impact of various rural development programmes but also in assessing the participation of beneficiaries and that of the implementing agencies.
