A strategy for judicious use of resources is called a resource planning. It is important in India because they are the basis of all economic activities which are the necessary for the development of a nation.

Resource planning is a complex process which involves three stages:

  1. to identify the resources across the regions of the country. The methods can be surveying, mapping and qualitative and quantitative estimation and measurement of the resources.

  3. To coordinate the resource development plans with overall national development plans . It refers to meeting the requirements of larger plans of the nation.
