The Haryana Institute of Rural Development (HIRD) was set up, at Nilokheri in Haryana in 1990, as the apex Training and Research Institute in the field of Rural Development in the State. HIRD is an autonomous body under the Department of Development and Panchayats, Government of Haryana. The setting up of the SIRDs for providing facilities for training, research and consultancy, etc., in Rural Development, is the result of a decision of a High-Powered Committee constituted at the Government of India level. Subsequently, the European Economic Community agreed to provide sufficient funds for the creation of basic infrastructure for these institutions in every state. It also agreed to finance the SIRDs on a recurring basis to the extent of 50 per cent. The remaining 50 percent expenses are to be borne by the concerned State Governments with the specific objectives of revamping the training infrastructure and enabling the administrative functionaries, the elected representatives of the PRIs and the ultimate target beneficiaries to derive maximum advantage out of the resources being allocated for various Rural Development and related Programmes in the State. Another important dimension was added to the responsibility of the HIRD because of two very crucial central Acts, Mahatma Gandhi NREGA and RTI Act. NREGA was extended in all the districts of the country from April 2008 and accordingly the responsibility of the HIRD for the capacity building of all the stakeholders right from grassroots level to the district level administration increased many fold. Literature, reading material, training module were to be prepared and circulated among all the stakeholders. RTI Act also added training activities of the HIRD. For this purpose, the Institute will have to do capacity building of the SPIOs, ASPIOs and the representatives and functionaries of the Panchayati Raj Institutions through training and awareness campaigns.
