What is rural development in india?
Rural Development in India aims at the overall development of rural India, the primary focus being the boosting of the agrarian economy of India. India’s agrarian economy is responsible for 1/5th of the total Gross Domestic Product, and for the country to keep at its pace of development, this is one sector that needs to be given primary importance. This includes bringing power to India’s villages, free education to its schools, and a better standard of living for the people living in rural areas.
Implementing newer and better methods of cultivation is another method to boost the agrarian economy. A fitting example of this is the Unnati project by HCCB. Employing a cutting edge technique known as Ultra High Density Plantation of mangoes, which cuts down the cultivation period of mangoes to a few months, while also increasing the number of mango trees that can be grown per acre.
