The problem considered in this paper is to select various schemes under the integrated Rural Development Program (IRDP) and to maximise the number of beneficiaries so as to optimise the annual income generated from each scheme. There are typical constraints prescribed by the government in the allocation of funds to several schemes from the budget outlay for IRDP each year. In this paper, with the help of the data drawn from the District Rural Development Agency of Dindigul Anna District, Tamil Nadu, India, we develop a linear programming model for maximising the annual income generated from the schemes.
