The Cluster Approach


The Cluster Approach S Guhan THIS book is part of the output from the 'Tumkur Project' of the Institute for Social and Economic Change, Bangalore. The project is a systematic, interdisciplinary attempt to look at problems of rural development in the perspective of clusters of villages as the 'unit-area' of development. The 'cluster approach' was first outlined by V K R V Rao in his Convocation Address (1977) to the Indian Agricultural Research Institute. It is based on the perception that" both welfare-oriented and growth-oriented rural development should be optimally planned for on the basis of groups or clusters of villages rather than on single village basis or in terms of ad- ministrative units such as blocks and taluks.
