The history of Rural Development Programmes in India dates back to pre-independence period.  Over the years, many rural development programmes were implemented depending on the needs of the rural poor of the country.  Reaching the basic needs such as food and shelter of the poor, various rural development programmes were implemented by the Central Government from time to time through the State Government.

The Rural Development Department is primarily concerned with addressing the needs of the rural people in matters of sustainable economic activity, shelter & hygiene concerns, rural infrastructure & connectivity.
