What efforts were made for resource planning in the First Five Year Plan?

Answer:

  • The availability of resources is a necessary condition for the development of any region. But technological knowledge is an important prerequisite for it.
  • There are many regions in our country that are rich in resources but are economically backward; whereas there are some regions which have a poor resource base but are economically developed.
  • Resources can contribute to development only when they are accompanied by appropriate technological development.
  • In India, development or resource development does not only mean the availability of resources but also the technology, quality of human resources and the historical experiences of the people.
