This study has identified significant gaps between the intention of a series of rural development schemes and the experiences of the supposed beneficiaries – as in the case of the two Zeme Naga tribal villages located at the border of two administrative jurisdictions of Manipur and Nagaland. This study analyses the villagers’ perceptions of rural development programmes, their socio-economic status, and living condition based on interviews and observations. It attempts to understand the socioeconomic issues of the two villages, and further leads us to look at the concerns of the villagers and figure out what ought to be done.
