Rising Farm Wages in India: The ‘Pull’ and ‘Push’ Factors

Publisher: CACP Ministry of Agriculture

This paper captures the growth ‘pull’ factors through growth of overall GDP, or of construction-GDP or agri-GDP, while MGNREGA’s ‘push’ factor is measured by the employment generated under the MGNREGA scheme. The econometric analysis is undertaken through a panel data set of 16 major states (by pooling) for the period 1990-91 through 2011-12. Analysis is also undertaken for each of these 16 states separately through time series analysis for different time periods.
