To keep a counter check on every aspects on rural development , population has been the most importance point to safeguard the element. Migration plays a very pivotal role in deciding the control check on development in rural.

The government though on the regular basis maintain the record yet a lot more has to be done. Stressing on the importance of maintaining population balance in cities and villages, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar  said there is a need to evolve a formula for ensuring development of rural areas at par with urban areas to check migration of people to cities. 

He emphasised if people want to the country and state to be happy and prosperous, there is first a need to develop the villages. The chief minister said Vidhayak Adarsh Gram Yojana aims at ensuring the socio-economic development of villages by ensuring active participation of people. 

He said all members of Legislative Assembly, cutting across the political parties, should be part of this scheme and contribute towards rural development. 

Under the scheme each MLA would have to develop three villages by September, 2019. The first village will have be developed by March, 2017, second by September, 2018 and third by September, 2019. 

The MLAs will have to choose first village by December 1, 2015, second by May 1, 2016 and third by November 1, 2017. 

Villages with population ranging between 3,000-7,000 in ground areas and between 1,000-3,000 in hilly areas could be taken up by the MLAs for development, Khattar said. 

It is not mandatory for the MLAs to choose village from their own constituency. They could opt for villages of their choice from other constituencies too, he added. 

Besides the implementation of Vidhayak Adarsh Gram Yojana and Saansad Adarsh Gram Yojana, prominent personalities, who are residents of village but settled in other parts of country or abroad, will also be asked to adopt their village.
