Agricultural Modernisation and Agricultural Development in India
About the eBook
Agricultural sector in India recently faces serious challenges and constraints because of liberalisation and globalisation policy followed by Indian Government. Establishment of many agriclinics and agro colonialism leads to our economy in progressive path. Huge volume of investment allocations have been made to improve agriculture as agri business sector but have not been able to achieve the desired goal because many difficulties and uncertainties are clubbed with each other. Agricultural modernisation as was introduced by the British raj was based on exploitative land, labour and credit relations and was promoted with our eye to colonial interests. The modernisation that independent India has witnessed has improved the lot of peasants of all categories, but the large farmers have come to dominate rural society. Social equality remains elusive. The book covers all these aspects in a vivid way.
