ABSTRACT

Concerned by the slow growth in the agriculture and allied sectors, the National Development Council (NDC) resolved that a special additional central assistance scheme namely Rastriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY) be launched. The NDC resolved that agricultural development strategies must be reoriented to meet the needs of farmers and called upon the Central and State Governments to evolve a strategy to rejuvenate agriculture. The NDC reaffirmed its commitment to achieve 5.5 per cent annual growth in the agricultural sector during the 12th plan. The present investigation was conducted in Banswara district of southern Rajasthan. Banswara and Ghatol tehsils were selected for the present study on the basis of maximum number of tribal population. The study reveals that the majority of tribal beneficiaries reported remarkable change with regard to social aspects like experience and confidence increased due to interaction with fellow member and training received. The change to a remarkable extent was found by majority of beneficiaries with regard to economic aspects such as overall family income increased, standard of feeding and clothing improved, material possessed including household increased.
