Agriculture and Rural Development

Abha Lakshmi Singh (Author) Shahab Fazal (Author)
Synopsis Rural India and Agriculture are nearly synonymous and the rural dimension in Indian economy is of towering significance. Agriculture is providing livelihood for four out of every five Indians and even fifth one would find it extremely hard to survive if agriculture or rural economy is neglected. So to say that rural development is national development is not very wide off the mark. Indian policy makers have been emphasizing the primacy of rural development, ever since the planning process was initiated in the country. But is should be remembered by the planners that rural development is an interminable process and continuous in its conception and any shift in emphasis or change in the contours of process may lead to anarchy and more problems. This book consists of five chapters, the first is about conceptual basis of rural development and various efforts made for rural development in India. The second chapter deals with the importance of agriculture in Indian economy and role of agriculture in the rural development. The third chapter discusses rural infrastructural facilities and amenities. The fourth chapter throws light on various issues of agriculture and rural development in India. The fifth chapter critically examines the rural development strategies in India. This is a very useful reference book for Administrators, Policy Makers, Planners who are engaged in the Agriculture and Rural Development of the Country.
