Agrarian Crisis in India

Anil Kumar Thakur (Editor) Surendra Kumar (Editor)
Synopsis Our agrarian economy is facing grave crisis. Some of the crises are natural and some are man-made. Our agriculture is still a gamble with monsoon even after completion of ten five year plans. Flood devastations, drought and fall in rainfall are natural calamities whereas absentee landlordism, defective tenurial system; arbitrary fixation of rent, disparity in the ownership of land; paucity of financial resources, illiteracy and ignorance among farmers, partial implementation of land reform measures prevalence of semi-feudal system in the rural area, indifferent attitude of the state and union governments; burden of indebtedness; lack of marketing facilities and rampant corruption in the distribution of fertilisers; improved seeds and agricultural tools are some of the glaring causes on account of which the agrarian crisis is deepening day-by-day despite the tall talk of the Government and Planning Commission to achieve 4% agricultural growth during 11th plan period which is stagnating presently at 2% per annum. This book in 24 chapters is an humble attempt to diagnose the causes of agrarian crisis and to prescribe remedial measures.All contributors have analysed the causes of agrarian crisis and its remedies in their own way.
