National Seminar on Recent Developments in Economics of Rural Development Policy Approaches, Issues, and Innovations

ABOUT THE SEMINAR

Mahatama Gandhi always believed that the “Future of India Lies in its villages” and he was convinced that “If the villages perish, India will perish too”. For him  rebuilding of the nation could be achieved only by reconstructing villages. The share of rural population in total population is gradually declining but still close to  66.46 % in 2017 as per World Bank collection of development indicators. Despite declining share of agriculture in GDP, agriculture continues to employ around half the country’s total workforce and over two-third of the rural workforce. As the country aspires to double the farmers’ income by 2022 the policy planners need to analyze issues related to agriculture and rural development in holistic manner. The proposed seminar attempts to highlight the policies, empirical investigations and theoretical approaches to rural development in India and will focus on understanding its dimensions, structure and the various challenges it generates for rural development and also attempt to discuss the possibilities that could be generated through molding rural development approaches in fruitful manner so that it could act as a catalyst for poverty eradication, rural inequalities and overall rural development
