The voluntary sector in India has played a major role in rural development, through mobilising communities and catalysing people`s initiatives for change, as well as through direct implementation of interventions around specific issues.
Formal recognition of the role of voluntary organisations in the Seventh Plan documentled to the formation of the Council for Advancement of People`s Action and Rural Technology (CAPART) in 1986, as a nodal agency for catalysing and coordinating the emerging partnership between voluntary organisations and Government for sustainable development of rural areas.
CAPART was formed by amalgamating two agencies the ‘Council for Advancement of Rural Technology’(CART) and ‘People`s Action for Development India’ (PAD). CAPART is an autonomous body registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860, and is functioning under the agencies of the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India. Today, this agency is a major promoter of rural development in India, assisting over12,000 voluntary organizations across the country in implementing a wide range of development initiatives.
