Asim Kumar Rajbhar, Dr. Kushendra Mishra
Development means unfolding, revealing or opening up the facts of world which are latent. For human being it is nurturing his potential power. Primary objectives vested in development are economic growth, equity in income distribution, political and economic freedom and equitable access to resources, health care, education, opportunities of employments and justice. Rural development is part and parcel of overall development and connotes the achievement of these basic objectives in overall rural area of the nation. Source of income i.e. type of economic activities in which the rural population involved is the one of the most important determinant of rural development. The major source of rural livelihood and income of 58.2% workforce of India is agriculture but unfortunately it is growing only at a pace of 2.8% during 2010-11. In India, agriculture has been facing the issues of ineffective Supply chain Management (SCM) long before.
This descriptive research paper studies the Supply Chain Management of two agricultural products viz., Rice and wheat and finds SCM is an intrinsic tool for rural development.
