Rural Management Students undergo Block Placement to understand government programmes and schemes
Block-Level Placement is an integral part of the course curriculum of the Rural Management Programme of XISS. The objective of block placement is to provide an opportunity for the students to observe and learn the practical aspects of different government programmes and schemes for sustainable community development at the Block Level. This observation and learning of government programmes and schemes took place in the form of a Block Placement.
This year students were divided into seven small groups; each group consists of both boys and girls. In Ranchi district, students were placed in seven blocks - Kanke, Ratu, Ormanjhi, Nagri, Itki, Angara, and Namkum. The students visited the said blocks during the daytime and returned to their residences by evening. The Block level exposure was held from 19 December 2022 to 3 January 2023. Students submitted a report based on their observation and learning to the Block Development Officer and in their office after completion of their study.
Students observed, learned, and understand the aims and objectives of the programmes and schemes like MGNREGA, PMAY, SRLM, DDU-GKY, NSAP,etc. for alleviation of poverty, generation of employment, creation of durable community, social and economic assets, and providing social security for the rural people and general development to uplift the economic condition of people living in rural areas of the Ranchi district of the Jharkhand State.
Block Placement exposure of Rural Management students was successfully completed under the supervision of Dr K.K. Bhagat and Dr Sanjay K. Verma.
