The District Rural Development Agency, North Garo Hills, Resubelpara, carved out of erstwhile, DRDA, East Garo Hills, Williamnagar is a society registered under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 on 5th of September, 2012, and is governed by existing rules and procedures of Community & Rural Development, Government of Meghalaya and Government of India. DRDA has traditionally been the principal organ at the district level to oversee the implementation of anti-poverty programmes of the Ministry of Rural Development. This agency was created originally to implement the Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP). Subsequently the DRDAs were entrusted with number of programmes of both state and central governments.

Rural development and poverty alleviation programmes are implemented on a decentralized basis, keeping in view the large geographical areas, the administrative requirements and the need to involve grassroots-level officials and the community in the implementation of the programmes. At the central level the Ministry of Rural Areas & Employment has been co-ordinating the implementation of these programmes. The Ministry is responsible for the release of central share of funds, policy formulation, overall guidance, monitoring and evaluation of the programmes. At the State level Secretary, Community and Rural Development and the Director of Community and Rural Development are overall incharge for implementation of the rural development programmes. At the District level, the programmes are implemented through the DRDAs (District Rural Development Agencies). The governing body of DRDA includes Members of Parliament (MPs), Members of Legislative Assemblies (MLAs), District level officials of Development Departments, Bankers, NGO's and representatives of weaker sections of the society. The Deputy Commissioner is the Chairman of the Governing Body and the Project Director is the Member Secretary. At the block level the Block Development Committee, Block Development Officers and at the village level, village level workers are responsible for implementation of the Programme. The Governing body at the district level provides guidance and directions to DRDA.

Many Schemes of the Central and State Governments are introduced from time to time. Several schemes are available providing support to different components of Rural Development. Schemes are also periodically modified to reflect the experience over the years. The task of DRDA has been to identify the needs of the rural population and reach the appropriate schemes where they are needed. In implementing the schemes, the role of the DRDA has been technical, managerial and financial. Thus DRDA is not only a body to monitor the funds for the schemes but also provide appropriate managerial and technical support.

In order to ensure proper implementation of the programmes at the grass roots Ministry of Rural Development has evolved a comprehensive system of Monitoring and Evaluation and professional agencies are made use of in this. Regular monitoring of the programmes are done to assess the physical and financial progress. Concurrent evaluation is conducted periodically to streamline the implementation and improve the delivery systems. The Monitoring and Evaluation programme includes Progress Reports, Financial Statements, Intensive Inspection by officers of the central and state governments, Parliamentary Committees and research studies on specific areas.
