Prime minister has presented his dream of smart cities in India and a bunch of hundred cities has been selected for the project. These cities are supposed to work with an efficient technology based sustainable model of development. Mahatma Gandhi always anemphasis on the development of rural India and his statement “India lives in its villages" was his visionary idea. An area that is located outside the cities and towns (countryside in western literature) is known as rural. In India, there are near about 70% of thepopulation residing in rural areas and those areas need immediate face-lifting in term of socio-economic and political spheres. Lower educational attainment and poor economic conditions keep them backward than urban counterparts. Wisely and combined uses of information communication technology (ICT) and Geographic Information System (GIS) can enhance rural areas from agriculture to industries and farm to housing, from education to health and other spheres of rural life.The present paper is an attempt to explore the areas of rural life those can be improved with the help of ICT and GIS techniques.
