The basic assumption of this paper is that rural development in India should not be seen as a package of specific needs but as a transformation of rural life and conditions of the country. In this paper, it is assumed that the term rural development means the overall development of rural areas on a sustainable basis. In this background, the paper attempts to explain the link between the microfinance services and the rural development. The paper also argues that microfinance is not a magic bullet for poverty reduction and rural development in India. The paper which is conceptual in nature is totally based on secondary data.

Keywords: Microfinance, Rural Development, Magic bullet, Poverty reduction
