The importance of agriculture and its role in socio-economic..

IIPM - Admission Procedure

The importance of agriculture and its role in socio-economic in India can be realised from the fact that the majority of population depends directly or indirectly on agriculture. The agriculture sector contributes only about 18% of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with around 60% population depending on the same. For development of agriculture APMC Act or Agriculture Produce Marketing Committee Act should be dismantled and more access to free market should be provided to the farmers. On the lines of Special Economic Zones, 750 Special Agriculture Zones or Agro-processing Zones, should be developed. This will allow specialised agriculture and resources sharing that will in-turn lower the production cost and increase efficiency. To let in this improvement percolate all the farmers, even in the most remote area, there is urgent need of 75 new agriculture research institute and extent the irrigation facility to 75% of land area, which now covers only 55% of land. The agriculture should be more technology intensive, wherein the farmers should be told about latest technology and scientific methods of agriculture. For imparting this kind of knowledge, farmers should be updated with latest improvement in framing and for this 750 small agriculture information centres should be opened. Schemes like ‘Saksham’ should be extended to 75000 villages from current target of 50000 villages and should cover 75% of rural population instead of 50% population. The success story of ITC’s numerous projects should be widened and should reach benefit 75000 villages of India (only 35000 villages had been covered).
