Volume: 5 Issue: 2 2015
Naxalite movement in India is a social and political concern. The paper aims to see whether there exists any developmental disparity between Naxalite and non Naxalite affected districts of selected states in India and then it focuses on crime rates (especially on murder rates) in the study area with the hypotheses that development is more in Non- Naxal affected districts and Naxal affected districts experience significantly higher murder rate over non- Naxalite districts. Culling data from the Crime records of India, Census andDistrict Level Household Survey, the study reveals that unlike overall crime rate there exists considerably higher murder rates inNaxal affected districts and a marked social developmental disparity between Naxalite and non- Naxalite areas. The propensity of Murder is noticeably low with lower level of urbanization, higher female- male ratio and better literacy. Social development should be prioritized in the Naxal affected districts.
