Mahatma Gandhi has rightly said: I have believed and repeated times without number that India is to be found not in its few cities but in its lacs of villages. Rural Development enjoys top most priority in the policies and programmes of India. Designing and execution of development projects is an essential means of attaining certain basic objectives such as alleviation of poverty, generation of employment, increasing of literacy, provision of health care, fulfillment of housing and a host of other basic needs in rural areas. The overcrowding in cities should be an eye opener to the national policy-makers; the key to the urban problems lies in the improvement of life in rural sector. Indeed, the only alternative to extreme pressure on bigger cities and their strained infrastructure is to develop rural areas. This paper analyses the efficacy of rural development programs with all the three stakeholders of the development process which are NGOs, villagers and the concerned government officials.
