CENTRE FOR RURAL STUDIES (CRS) Chaudhary Devi Lal University Sirsa is located in the rural hinterland and therefore considered to be educationally backward. The economic life of the university's catchment area in the Sirsa and Fatehabad districts (the colleges of these districts are affiliated to this University) of Haryana state, Bhatinda, Mansa and Barnala districts of Punjab state and Hanumangarh and Sri Ganga Nagar districts of Rajasthan primarily dependents upon on agriculture activities. The university's rural demographic character necessitates conducting and promoting studies in rural affairs. Thus, the rationale for setting up the Centre for Rural Studies. The Centre will be headed by a Director (equivalent to the rank of Professor and should have experience of rural affairs related research studies) with adequate staff and own office. The UCRS will: a) Prepare, develop and deliver academic programs focusing on rural affairs. b) Promote research in rural affairs. c) Institute award for excellent research work in rural affairs. d) Conduct training programs for elected representatives of PRIs and officials engaged in delivering services to rural people or engaged in rural development.
