One of the major objectives of Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration, Mussoorie, which imparts training to Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers, is not only to sensitize them towards the plight of rural people, but also to equip them with an in-depth understanding of rural issues. The IAS officer trainees are required to prepare a village study report as a part of their district assignments after conducting extensive questionnaire based household survey.
The volume- I of the Socio-Economic Profile of Rural India, Series – III, contain State papers of the States of Haryana, Punjab, Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, prepared by eminent scholars. The basic ingredients of these state papers are borrowed from the village study reports of the IAS Officer Trainees. Undoubtedly, the state papers are of high quality because they are enriched by inputs from the long-experiences of the authors in the field of rural development.
