Nearly seventy-five per cent of Indian population live in rural areas. This rural population is spread over 5.8 lakh settlements of different sizes throughout India. Rural development is getting increased attention recently from planners as this is closely linked up with the overall economic development of the country. Road network in rural areas constitutes one of the essential infrastructures required for the development of agrarian Indian economy. A comprehensive study of rural travel patterns, changes in transport demand with time and other related issues on traffic and transport help planners and other decision makers in developing appropriate long term strategies.
