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.

  2. To develop a planning structure endowed with appropriate technology, skill and institutional set up for implementing resource development plans.

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