There are umpteen number of developmental programmes concentrating on poor. However, at no single place, a list of these programmes offered by Government, NGOs and other agencies are available. This study has the objective of documenting and analysing the developmental programmes/schemes in vogue, benefits rcfeived, difficulties faced in availing the benefits of developmental programmetnd the transaction costs incurred to avail the benefit in the rural and peri-urba areas of Bangalore metropolis surrounding Magadi. For this study, a sample of 0 farmers from peri urban (Magadi town area) and another sample of 50 farmers from rural area (Halasabele village Magadi) have been chosen, to have comparison between the benefits of developmental programmes received by the farmers in peri-urban areas with that of farmers of rural area. Magadi town is well connected with Bangalore metropolis by a new asphalted road. Halasabele village is included in the sample as the rural village located 20 kms away from Magadi town on the way to Kunigal, with relatively low urban or peri-urban influence. A litmus test for the apparent difference between peri-urban and rural area lies in the market value of land of Rs. 2 million per acre in peri urban Magadi and Rs.O.S to 0.6 million per acre in rural area of Halasabele, pointing to a difference of around 300 per cent. The sample farmers were chosen to include 25 farmers with irrigation facility and 25 farmers without irrigation facility with the hypothesis that irrigation confers higher benefits. It is also hypothesised that the governance of developmental programmes is indicated by the magnitude of transaction costs
