One of the main problems for rural India being not at the same pace of development as the urban India is due to the lack of schemes, that involve the participation from all the stakeholders. There is a gap between the government policies and its beneficiaries. The gap widens with every initiative of the government that fails to reach the remotest parts and fills up with the policies that touched almost every needy in the country. However, in a country with a population of over 1.25 billion, it is drastically difficult to design an initiative that benefits all. Therefore, there is a need to synergize the efforts of Academia-Government-Industries & Society in every area to orchestrate ground level models for technological, social as well as administerial betterment of the rural India.
