10th Statistics Day: Agriculture and Farmer's Welfare

Publisher: MoSPI

Agriculture and allied activities remain the major source of livelihood for nearly half of the Indian population. The sector is critical for food security and inclusive growth. It has been observed, especially from the development experience in Brazil, Russia, India, China (BRIC) countries, that one percentage point growth in agriculture is at least two to three times more effective in reducing poverty than the same magnitude of growth emanating from non-agriculture sector. Agriculture, thus, occupies the centre stage in the Indian economy and any situational change in this sector, positive or negative, has a multiplier effect on the entire economy.
