Development of the rural areas has been one of the paramount concern of the successive five year plans of the ountry. The implementation of the scheme Integrated Rural Development (IRDP) was made in 1978 - 79. This programme is now a component of the 20 point Programme. The IRDP aims at a target group consisting of the poorest among the poor including small and marginal farmers, scheduled tribes, scheduled caste and all other persons who lives below the poverty line. The twin objectives of raising incomem and generating employment are to be achieved through investment in agriculture and ancillary occupations, cottage and small scale industries and particular in viable economic activity which suits the beneficiary family. The author's in the present study make an analysis of the in-put of investment in the amelioration of poverty condition. They have data evidence to infer that to some extent the programme has helped the benediciaries to cross the poverty line.
