Abstract-In this research paper, author would like to focus on Non-Governmental Organizations and Peoples' Participation on Wasteland Development in India. A Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) is any non-profit, voluntary group of citizens which is organized at local, national or international level. Task-oriented and driven by people with a common interest, NGOs perform a variety of services and humanitarian functions, bring citizens' concerns to the notice of governments for necessary remedial action. They provide expertise, serve as early warning mechanisms and help sometimes implement international agreements. Some are organized around specific issues, such as human rights, the environment and health. Their relationship with offices and agencies of the United Nations System differs depending on their goals, their venue and their mandate. Over, 1,500 NGOs with strong information programme on issues of concern to the United Nations are associated with the Department of Public Information (DPI), giving the United Nations valuable links to people around the world. DPI helps those NGOs gain access to and disseminate information about the range of issues in which the United Nations is involved, to enable the public to understand better the aims and objectives of the World Organization.
