About The Seminar:

Mahatama Gandhi always believed that the “Future of India Lies in its villages” and he was convinced that “If the villages perish, India will perish too”. For him rebuilding of the nation could be achieved only by reconstructing villages. Though urbanization is increasing and consequently proportion of rural population in total population is gradually on decline still close to seventy percent population or 743 million people, as per census 2011 live in rural areas and despite declining share of agriculture and GDP, agriculture continues to employ around half the country’s total workforce and over two-thirds of the rural workforce.
