Development is a dynamic concept and it changes through time and over spaces. It is mostly inegalitarian and all spaces are not properly equipped for development. Regional disparity is inevitable and it’s part and parcel of developmental studies of developing countries. Identification of developed or backward region within a spatial unit is one of the most important issues of targated development. It aims to reduce regional imbalance and helps to achieve regional development. Spatial variation in terms of socio-cultural, economic, health or infrastructural aspects are perpetual pheneomena of Indian history whether it’s from colonial rules or to the present context. Present paper tries to identify regional variation in various aspects at the block level. Bankura district which is quite distinct physiographically and culturally and also one of the western district of West Bengal has been chosen as study area. Block level analysis of developmental parameters will help planners to endow resourses for further development of the less developed blocks. Analysing various aspects of development, Kotulpur, Bankura-I, Khatra, Barjora have been identified as developed blocks whereas blocks like Saltora, Ranibandh, Indpur, Gangajalghati are considered as less developed.
