While India is moving at a brisk pace in globalisation and industrialisation, a large and important section of the country’s population is struggling with social and economic backwardness. These areas of backwardness include poverty, illiteracy, women exploitation, unemployment, etc., and are keeping economy weak. Therefore, we will have to re-build rural sector to lay a solid foundation of development and strengthen the process of development in rural areas.
The booklet Panchayaton Ki Bhoomika: Margdarshika is a step towards strengthening panchayats as a mean to develop such a framework through which villages can progress towards development. The booklet aims to impart necessary information to the target audience in an easy to understand format so panchayati raj system can be strengthened.
