Rural development is an old theme, although the concept has experienced continuous evolution in contents and concerns for organising development in the rural areas. The primacy of rural development in less developed countries emerges due to the overwhelming significance of rural dimensions in their economies. Rural development, like economic development, reflects concern for the reduction in poverty, inequality and exploitation. In most countries, this may also be taken as a concern for urban biases in development since most of the socio-economic indicators such as income, nutrition, life expectancy, physical infrastructure, literacy, provision of social services in the rural areas compare unfavourably with those in the urban areas. Rural development implies desired positive change in the rural areas both in a qualitative and quantitative sense. The reduction of hunger, poverty, unemployment and inequality constitutes rural development, which in term improves the quality of life and level of living of the rural masses.
