Rural Transformation in India

The Impact of Globalisation

Edited by: A. Vinayak Reddy, Gaddam Bhaskar

Emergence of WTO and the series of deliberations under Uruguay round have changed the world economic order. Indian Government has shelved the earlier protectionist policies and opened up the economy to the world market. he biased attitude of the Government towards service and industrial sectors has relegated agriculture to the backdrop. The present book attempts to highlight the challenges posed by globalisation on the agriculture sector and rural development efforts and the consequent impact on rural poverty, food security and employment situation. Macro and micro level observations on the above issues dealt with in this book will give valuable insight into current issues and problems related to rural economy of India.
