Rural Infrastructure Development Level and its Constraints in Chambal-Yamuna Plain of Western Uttar Pradesh
Abstract: The accessibility to rural-infrastructural services is strongly constraint by physiographic factors of the region. Inadequate accessibility affects the scenario for socio-economic development of a region. Hence the Level of accessibility to services is determinant of level of development of a region. In the present study the development level of Socio-economic infrastructure of the villages of the semi-arid Yamuna-Chambal plain has been analyzed. It has been observed that the expansion of gully and ravenous feature are obstructing the connectivity and development level of infrastructure here. Studied blocks are highly affected by land degradation. As a result of that undulating surface has isolated the habitats of this region. Few portion of the study area is having comparatively better infrastructure facilities. These zones are delimited with the area associated to administrative canters and expanded on arable patches. This study would help to understanding the physiographic correlates of socio-economic development of a rural area.
