Presents, Urbanization and globalisation constructs are really important negotiations in this universe. Therefore, in National Policies, execution is really of import facet to transport out their activities efficaciously. Further, due to the increasing development activities and revisits the failings, restrictions and oversights in past policies in Government national development policies execution, these are really of import in the comparing of rural development public presentation between national policies and Government mechanism.
Here, National Policies are chief cardinal participants of Government mechanism and those policies stimulate the rural economic development and growing of rural economic. Hence, today assorted types of NGOs, INGOs want to implement in rural countries and to increase more development activities. Further, authorities establishments help to happening the development troubles besides. Therefore it is of import that the measuring of the comparing of the rural development placement of the national policies which implemented in Sri Lanka. Through this research, we can happen out the grade of rural development activities of national authorities policies in order to compare the public presentation of those policies.
National Policies was introduced by Canadian Conservative Party for economic development in 1876 and set into action in1979[ 1 ].Then other states besides follow these policies to elate their states ‘ economic development. These policies consider Rural Development actions which largely aim at the societal and economic development of the country. These plans are normally top-down the local or regional governments, regional development bureaus, NGOs, national authoritiess or international development organisations. But so, local populations can besides convey approximately endogenous enterprises for development. The term is non limited to the issues for developing states. In fact many of the development states have really active rural development plans. The chief purpose of the national policies is to develop the undeveloped small towns. To develop a state non merely industrialisation is sufficient but besides the every common has to last.
Sri Lanka ‘s national policies are being reoriented under the stewardship of the United People ‘s Freedom Alliance ( UPFA ) Government, aimed at acceleration of economic growing with particular consideration given to pro-poor growing schemes[ 2 ]. The development scheme consolidates positive elements of the national policies followed over the past two decennaries and revisits the failings, restrictions and oversights in past policies in order to guarantee just development in the state.
2.0 Background of the research survey
2.1 Objective of the Study
The aim of the research survey is to happen out the grade of the rural development placement of the national policies in order to compare the public presentation of those policies.
From this, the research will try to
Identify the factors which are act uponing on national policy public presentation of Government.
Identifying if there is any important disparity between rural development and its impact on the national policy public presentation.
Identifying and analysing factors that lead rural development negligence and besides supplying suggestions to do a better pick of national policy public presentation.
Identifying the factors which are act uponing on the effectual rural development of national policy.
2.2 Significance of the Study
The National policies of rural development are implemented by Government mechanism in rural countries ; so, we must mensurate the public presentation, development tendency, hazard, and rural people reaction of the national policies ‘ execution. In this, manner we can happen out the policies ‘ public presentation to the society and state. This will profit to the authorities through the measuring and comparing of the national policies ‘ public presentation of rural development.
The National policies will be planned authorities ‘s future effectual development activities.
The authorities can explicate the national development schemes in national policies.
They can be after has to pull the rural people in order to accomplish their ends.
So, this comparing besides helps to the society to foretell that in which authorities implement their development policies and how to increase their development public presentation. A authorities can make up one’s mind that how to accomplish the development mark from national policies in originative manner to actuate its organisations.
2.3 Over View of the National Policies[ 3 ]
Here the research worker considers the Aims of the national policies and their activities. The chief aim of the formation of this National Policies are to mix all the poorness relief undertakings implemented by several line authorities organisations at regional and rural degree under Government Mechanism and implement such rural development undertakings with proper resource direction and co-ordination to accomplish productive development in the state. The broad range of duties assigned to the National Policies includes major national development plans implemented island broad every bit good as undertakings implemented at regional degree. Main national degree plans include the Gama Neguma, Jathika Saviya, Decentralized Budget, Samurdhi Scheme.
2.3.1Rural Development Policies
In malice of the fact that all the development plans implemented during the last five decennaries accommodated ‘Rural Development ‘ Programs and Projects, anticipated development in the small town could non be achieved, chief grounds being the preparation of plans at national degree, unequal attending and fiscal proviso to rural jobs, absence of community engagement in small town development and inefficient undertaking execution. Lack of equal Rural Development Policy was the chief ground for this state of affairs. The self-sufficing small town existed before the foreign invasions bit by bit headed to disaster due to the misguided and unequal rural development policies and schemes implemented after the foreign invasions and besides subsequent independency. The poorness degree in the rural countries and the plantation sector bit by bit increased.
The present Government holding realized this state of affairs introduced the Island broad National Program called ‘Gama Neguma ‘ concentrating on the rural community[ 4 ]. The Island-wide national development accomplishing through the building of an economically comfortable small town consisting of a principled society continuing ethical values can be regarded as the national policy aim of this plan.
Creation of a harmonious, good and healthy society through cultivating societal and cultural qualities in the community.
Conversion of the small town community to stakeholders of the development procedure and its benefits by intrusting the small town community, the right of determination doing with respect to the development of their ain small town and the duty of implementing appropriate undertakings.
Creation of a self-sufficing small town by bring forthing employment through doing available economic and societal installations to the villagers enabling them to happen their day-to-day demands within the small town itself.
Complete development in the small town by implementing plans under three major constituents of carry throughing moral/social development, making chances for coevals of supports and building of substructure installations in the small town.
In add-on to the commissariats made available by the Ministry of Nation Building, coordinate all other development activities carried out in the small town by other line Ministries, provincial and Local Government Authorities, private sector and non-governmental organisations.
Assure active co-operation of all interest holders such as rural community, province functionaries and local political authorization in the execution of Undertakings.
Gradual transmutation of the small town to be the Centre of development by unearthing the small town ‘s potencies and apportioning fiscal resources through a period of several old ages.
2.3.2Policies refering to poverty Alleviation
Even though the poorness degree of the Island as a whole has declined as shown in the statistical information of the Department of Census and Statistics, it is seen that poorness lines of the Rural Sector and Plantation Sector when taken individually are at a higher degree. In malice of income per-capita being high, bulk of the rural community still live in poorness while the poorness. In the plantation sector has reached alarmingly higher degrees during the last several old ages. The benefits accrued through attempts hitherto made for relief of poorness have non reached the rural and plantation sectors and the lower strata of population. It is hence necessary to implement specific pro-poor plans to minimise such disagreements. The Gama Neguma Program, in malice of its direct part towards minimising poorness of rural community, entirely is non sufficiently geared to minimise the poorness. The Samurdhi Relief Program plays a critical function in this way. It is implemented to guarantee minimal dependent degree of the poorest of the hapless.
Specific Policy Aims
Ensure minimal dependent degree of poorest.
Provision of sustainable supports to upgrade the criterion of life of the hapless and to accomplish economic authorization.
Execution of alleviation plans for the households populating below the poorness line.
Nutrition plans for pregnant and breastfeeding female parents in hapless households.
In add-on to above alleviation steps, proviso of Infrastructure installations, Capital, Technology, Consultancy, Guidance and Marketing installations by the Government to direct them towards sustainable supports.
Promote private investings, debut of recognition strategies and making public consciousness about bing recognition strategies. Execution of such particular undertakings for hapless households with Government ‘s intercession.
Avoid duplicate and guarantee maximal productive use of the resources through the co-ordination of pro-poor plans implemented in the rural countries with fiscal aid made available by the other line Ministries, Provincial Councils and Local Government bureaus and Non-Governmental organisations.
Allow and ease the rural community to program, implement and oversee their ain development plans.
2.3.3Gama Neguma ( Village Upliftment Program )[ 5 ]
Gama Neguma is a new construct for rural upliftment and small town re-awakening in Sri Lanka introduced with a position to convey about an accelerated development for the rural Sri Lanka by National Policies model. Despite the different rural development attacks taken topographic point over the past 60 old ages of post-independence epoch, no important advancement has been achieved to convey about a alteration in life style of rural multitudes to acceptable degrees.
To guarantee community engagement by motive, organisation and community authorization for autonomy based on entire development of the rural community.
To present a formal mechanism for participatory determination makes and undertaking planning.
To obtain optimal benefits from development plan and to implement incorporate small town development programs to avoid duplicate.
The under mentioned methods are used as basic scheme for small town development plans under ‘Gama Neguma ‘
To fix incorporate small town development programs with community engagement aiming all development attempts to accomplish a common aim.
To do chances for the rural community to take part actively in their economic, societal, cultural and moral development attempts.
To form and authorise rural community to guarantee their entire committedness and part in the development procedure
To pool all resources utilized in small town development and implement productive, transparent integrated small town development programs for proper coordination at small town and divisional degree,
To transform the rural community to a group of activities with ideological and comparative thought abilities and heighten self finding by developing their abilities and accomplishments demand for sustainable development dependant on ego trust, while altering the subsistent outlook with an orientation towards accomplishing marks.
Coincident Rural Livelihood Development with substructure development for economic revival and societal development.
2.4 Identifying the job of the research
It can be defined as National Policy that affects Rural Development ”
I. What factors affect national policy in rural development?
two. To what extent, rural development is determined public presentation of national policy?
2.5 Hypothesiss of the research
Based on the false insouciant relationship given in the undermentioned conceptual theoretical account, the undermentioned hypotheses are developed for proving
H1: – National Policy on Rural Development will non take to higher development Performance.
H2: – National Policy on Rural Development will take to higher development public presentation.
There are may be some restrictions in any survey and no outlook in this survey besides.
It was impossible to acquire to the full relevant and accurate informations on information from the beginning.
The identified restrictions are.
Annual study and other statistical studies are released by Government. So, it is non independent informations.
Due to the clip restriction the analysis portion has non been gone in deepness. Equally far as this survey is concerned these are the sensed restrictions.
This research considers the rural countries which are situated in deficiency of facilitated countries.
Interview method is non considered in this survey. Therefore, fresh information of rural development can non be acquired from rural people in this research.
This survey will be taken merely national policy that affects rural development. But other factors besides make influence on rural development. ( e.g. Government fiscal background, Rural People activities, and etc )
2.7 Research methodological analysis
In a deficiency of rural developed countries, rural development public presentation and national policies execution are critical issues. Rural development public presentation of national policies has positive impact on authorities organisational public presentation. In this survey, rural development public presentation of national policies that is authorities mechanism, and their degree of public presentation are measured. The relationship between rural development public presentation of national policies and national policies ‘ execution is measured by utilizing statistical techniques.
Conceptualization is of import to organize a frame work when understanding any analysis. It is better to obtain the consequence through this frame work. Then it is easy to happen out the relationship among them. The conceptual theoretical account clearly depicts the form of relationship among cardinal variables. In this manner, this analysis caused a relationship between national policies and their rural development public presentation to organize a conceptualisation theoretical account. Further national policies ‘ public presentation can besides be connected with authorities organisations ‘ efficiencies and effectivity.
The methodological analysis is used to analyse the relationship among variables and their predictable form.
SWOT analysis ( Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats analysis )
This research is a qualitative method in this research, based on research worker ‘s observation and responses from national policy on rural development public presentation.
This technique is used to happen out the relationship among the variables and their strength. This is a quantitative technique ; hence, two variables such as independent variable and dependent variable are taken in this survey.
Independent variable – National Policy implement of Government
Dependent variable – Rural Development Performance
X – Mugwump variables
Y – Dependent variables
r – Co – efficient correlativity
Pearson Co-efficient of correlativity
na?‘XY – a?‘Xa?‘Y
a?s ( na?‘X2 – ( a?‘X ) 2 ) . ( na?‘Y2 – ( a?‘Y ) 2 )
The coefficient of correlativity ( R ) takes the value from +1 to -1 ( including plus one and minus one ) Therefore the correlativity Coefficient expresses the undermentioned relationship.
Positive perfect relationship +1
Negative perfect relationship -1
Moderate relationship +0.5 or – 0.5
Strong relationships +0.9 or – 09
Weak relationships +0.1 or – 0. cubic decimeter
No correlativities 0
In this research, in order to happen out the relationship between these two variables Pearson co-efficient of correlativity is used. On this equation at co-efficient of correlativity following symbols are used.
This method is used to happen out the per centum and to show their tendency about rural development standing of national policies ‘ public presentation which is affected by certain factors.
