There will be loss of livelihood and income of the affected population once they are displaced from the affected village and being resettled in a new resettlement site.

  • Dr. Ankur Pare did research on “Sociological Study of Displacement of Affected families due to hydel electric projects: With special reference of National Rehabilitation and Resettlement Policy 2007” and found that for the development of the country the making of hydel electric project is very important. The Advantage due to hydel electric projects is water is available for irrigation, production of electricity, production of fish, drinking water. On the one hand there are advantages from the making of Multipurpose projects and on the other hand there are some disadvantages, like for the making of projects land acquisition is done due to which lakhs of people are displaced. So to sort out this problem National Rehabilitation and Resettlement Policy was made. According to this policy, minimum displacement of the people and to Identify non-displacing or least displacing alternatives in consultation with the requiring body, hold consultation with the affected families while preparing rehabilitation and resettlement scheme or plan, ensure that the interests of adversely affected persons of the Scheduled tribes and weaker sections are protected etc.

Gram Panchayats work at village level and implement the policies made by the government. Panchayati Raj has provided support to bring positive change in rural social structure. Now people have started participating in development work and highlighting the failures and critical view in the implementation of development programs. Panchayati Raj Institutions have emphasized in awakening the spirit of responsiveness in the villagers. Under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, school is being constructed in every village. The village panchayat does the work of providing land for the construction of the schools. The Sarpanch has been given the responsibility of monitoring the money which is sent by government to build a school. Panchayati Raj institutions have an important role in implementing the government’s development programs at local level and showing the desired results.

India is very sensitive towards natural disasters (flood, earthquake and landslide) as well as man-made disasters (chemical and industrial disasters). Disaster management is very important for sustainable development and environmental protection of our country. The biggest challenge during the disasters is to restore the facility of transport, food, water and shelter, despite all the difficulties for the affected areas due to disaster. Transportation routes are blocked, the electricity grid is failed and it becomes very difficult for the sufferers to get relief on time. Due to disasters, there is adverse impact on sectors like industries, especially communication and technology and this damages our economy. Pre-preparation of disaster management should be done such as sensitivity assessment, planning, institutional structure, information system, warning systems, public education and training and foreboding etc.

 

  • He did research on “Food Security in India: Challenges and Solutions”. In his research paper he focuses India have achieved food security but still problems like malnutrition and hunger in our country are not being solved. There is no shortage of grains in our country, which is considered to be the cause of hunger. Actually today the country’s large population does not have enough money, so that he can eat food and not able to feed his family. In fact, it is challenging to provide food security to every citizen of the country. On one side, growing population on the other side the farmers are moving to non-agricultural areas. To improve the status of food security in India setting up of Mega Food Park, organic farming, reduced use of chemical fertilizers, food coupon system and buffer stocks should be increased.
