The objective of the book is to study a unit or a programme with the help of sound methodological application. It has been observed that mere description of the planning and developmental strategies is insufficient to deal the problems of regional inequalities. Therefore, an attempt is being made to search the problem, formulate the strategies, enumerate objectives and to solve problems with appropriate methodological tools. In the book empirical evidences have been presented to cover broader perspective and holisticity of regional planning in India. Empirical verification is the key to write this volume. Unit level/area level study has been done to justify the idea and rational of this book. The thrust of the book is methodological argumentation, logical analysis and systematic arrangement of facts. This is envisioned that there is lack of systematic account to overview regional development, planning and policy outlook in India. This book is an attempt in this direction to replicate and emphasize developmental strategies and its implication. Special emphasis has been given on the methodological aspect so as to logically underpin the existing paradigms of development.
