To work towards an integrated development i.e., economic, social and cultural, and to stimulate sense of good relationships and cooperation among the villagers, raising their economic, educational, socio-cultural and moral levels.
The criterion for judging the success of our national level plans is the extent of balance achieved between increase in production and eradication of disparities. Development should start from the bottom instead of percolating from above. In order to achieve this, each village should be self-sufficient and capable of guarding against any external exploitation. Villages should be prepared to perish in their efforts to guard against external invasion. Each village should be locally self-governed and the Panchayat (Local Self-Government) should have full authority.
The objectives include to strive for integrated economic, social and cultural development of the inhabitants of the region; to ensure the proper utilization of local natural resources to build an agro-industrial society; to build ideal villages in which villagers are able to achieve all-round development, based on self-reliance and on conformity with the national ethos; to inculcate amongst the villagers an attitude of mutual cooperation and understanding, and to raise their economic, social, educational, cultural and moral standard; and to undertake various activities and programmes to achieve the above objects.
Its constituencies include farmers, women and tribal peoples.
