Abstract: Urbanisation is taking place at a rapid phase in India due to employment opportunities, education, entertainment, comforts, transportation, economic activities and better amenities. Both central and state government are giving more thrust for augmenting infrastructure in urban areas and less importance is given to rural areas. Around 60% of the population in India is living in rural areas and depending on agriculture and allied activities. As agriculture has become non-remunerative people from rural areas are migrating to urban areas in search of job. Migration of rural people to urban area can be reduced only when agriculture becomes sustainable remunerative and infrastructure and amenities are developed on par with urban areas. Concept of rurban is introduced with an objective of providing amenities on par with urban in rural areas. This paper aims at study of existing infrastructure in Nizampatnam. Collecting the expectations of the stakeholders, identifying the gap between the existing infrastructure and expectations, come up with an infrastructure model for the study area. Existing infrastructure in the study area is collected, a survey is carried out among the stakeholders to understand their needs and expectations and gap in infrastructure is identified. Also identified the schemes of state and central government under rurban mission and various other schemes and evolved and the modes of finance. Appropriate infrastructure for sustainable second green revolution is identified and presented.
