Getting Punjab Agriculture Back on High Growth Path: Sources, Drivers and Policy Lessons

Publisher: ICRIER

Punjab became a symbol of India's grain surpluses, giving India the much needed food security. But lately, as a result of its decelerating agri-growth, Punjab has lost its pre-eminent position of being the state with highest per capita income in India. That raises some fundamental questions: where did Punjab go wrong? And how can it get back to high growth path of more than 5 percent per annum in agriculture and overall GSDP of more than the national average of 7-8 percent per annum, say for the next 10 to 15 years? It is precisely these questions that we try to address in our larger study on Punjab agriculture, identifying its sources and drivers of growth, and how best to accelerate its agri-growth.
