Rural industries have a major aspect in Indian economy due to scarcity of capital; increasing unemployment; regional imbalances and disparities; inequalities in the distribution of income and wealth; and un-utilization and/or under-utilization of rural resources. This study analyses the potential of rural industrialization and their impact using the system approach, based on resource availability, in the untapped areas of Patna region. This study aims at analyzing the present scenario and forecasting the production and demand in the future using input-output model. Based on these analyses, the location and type of rural industries have been identified on the map of the Patna region. This study proposes planning model to ensure sustainable development in the system by imparting rural industrialization in the study area.
