Capacity building of rural development officers rural development officers and panchayat raj officers (rural administration) officers and functionaries forms the most strategic aspect in mobilizing all the schemes, policies and plans of the government and other organization for rural development, as these officials are at the grassroots, working directly with the rural communities and are the key players in delivering the planned services and benefits to the rural poor. The competence of these officers is directly related to the successful implementation of the development plans. APARD thus acts as an enabler in successful implementation of rural development schemes and projects as it trains and builds competency in the rural administrative and development officers to efficiently deliver service to the people and also creates awareness among the people about the services available.
