Village adoption is nothing but the act of accepting the villages for some purpose may be for development as in this context. Many efforts of village adoption are being carried out at many levels in our country. But it is almost very difficult to develop more than 6 lakh villages in India by just adopting them. Hence we need to strengthen village adoption programs towards a Model village approach as this village adoption has to be considered as a mile stone to achieve this. Usually both the Model village and Village adoption programs are assumed as the same, sometimes they are used as synonyms but not. This paper attempts to view these two approaches critically, and provided the scope and potential of the Model village concept with unique examples. It is expected the acceleration in the progression of our country through this unique approach.

Key words: Village Adoption, Village Development, Model Villages, Rural Development, Rural Migration, Rural India.
