The poorest segments of the world’s population are located in the rural areas of the developing countries, often with little or no agricultural land. While wage labour in the agricultural sector may provide subsistence employment, the majority of the rural poor will have to depend on non – farm employment. Rural industrialization is widely recognize as a dynamic force of development. Employment generation, income distribution, diversify the rural economy and narrow down spatial inequity in socio – economic development have traditionaly been considered as prim objectives of rural industrialization. This article is an attempt to show, can industrialization be best adapted for the development of the rural areas in developing counteries? We discuss how developing countries have faired in two last decade or so in promoting rural industrialization as a means to improve the living conditions of the people in their rural regions. We have analysed different approaches to rural industrialization and its impacts in developing countries. the consequences of research show that the rural indu-strialization as a part of rural integrated development approach could achieve the most important goals of development in rural areas. Rural industrialization has alleviated rural poverty through the employment generation.
