Even today 72.2 percent of the total population of India lives in the village, that is, 7 out of every 10 people live in the village. Even today India is a country in the village and the economy here is predominantly agricultural. Agriculture accounts for only 26 percent of the country's gross product. The economic growth of the country has been accelerated through the five-year plans and the rural economy has started changing the form of the village, which is not untouched by this.

6. Development of ancillary and cottage industries - Strengthening and improving the rural economy after independence.
For the purpose of this small and small domestic industries were developed according to the availability of local raw materials in every village. Which has increased employment opportunities.
