About the Book :

This volume attempts to examine the process and practice of development planning at grassroots level in India with the participation of the people. Touching upon the basics of devolution, namely transfer of powers, functions and finance in the states, it addresses the bottlenecks involved in the process. The contributors also discuss the relevance of regional information system and development indices in Panchayati Raj, the gap between district planning practice and theory, biomass assessment and optimization model for energy planning, and the problems in implementation of decentralization. The case studies of micro-level planning from the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Rajasthan make part of the discussion as well. The book will be of great use for researchers, policy-makers and development workers.
