Infrastructure is the foundation for the development of any country; Infrastructural facilities are the wheels of development which plays a decisive role in determining the overall productivity and development of country's economy as well as the quality of life of the citizens. This paper highlights the intra-district disparities in infrastructural facilities in Ranchi district using seven indicators viz. education, health, financial services, transport and communication and public utilities. An attempt has been made to examine the spatial disparities in infrastructural and rural development across the district, considering block as a unit of analysis, using simple multivariate method to construct a composite infrastructure development index (IDI) by combining various infrastructural facilities at the block level. The paper concludes suggesting suitable policies for developing the backward areas which would further aid in enhancing the levels of socio-economic development of Jharkhand. Keywords: Disparities, Infrastructural facilities, development.
