This paper delves into the philosophies of Mahatma Gandhi and Anna Hazare regarding the development of Indian villages, assessing the current rural development programs. It further examines factors and various dimensions of development, categorized into economic, social, sustainable, and territorial aspects of rural development. The study offers a comprehensive perspective on improving the quality of life through various Government schemes in border villages of Mahendergarh (Haryana) and Jhunjhunu (Rajasthan), selected based on a composite index. Primary data was collected through field surveys using scheduled interviews, complemented by secondary data from the District Census Handbook issued by the Census of India in 2011. A significant issue highlighted is the lack of respondent knowledge about Government Schemes, emphasizing the need for proper orientation. The development of villages should adopt a multifaceted approach, including attributes such as effective village leadership (Sarpanch), problem identification, democratic decision-making processes, social reforms, cooperative management systems, special attention to women, facilitation of village organizations, and direct funds for appropriate utilization. Local inclusion in shaping Smart Villages is crucial, leveraging their awareness of regional issues.
