Agriculture and Rural Development in India
By Astha Ahuja
Although agriculture is still the backbone of the Indian economy, at least in terms of employment, the impulses of reforms have been relatively less in scope and depth in this sector. This book explains the key reform measures undertaken for the development of agriculture and rural areas since 1991. To provide the necessary backdrop to the new order, the work traces the developments in Indian agriculture during the post-Independence period and examines current issues pertaining to this vital sector of the Indian economy.
