The Economics of Indian Agriculture

Author : Dr. B. V. Narayanaswamy

A general textbook, we felt, should deal with the permanent rather than the temporary problems such as, for instance, the present acute shortage of food caused by the war. fined our discussions to long-term trends. Chapters, debt relief and rural financing have been discussed first, as we have felt that no real progress is possible so long as the farmer continues to be financially dependent.

Our aim in writing this book has been to provide the under-graduates of our Universities with a comprehensive text-book on agricultural economics pertaining to conditions obtaining in our country. Much of the subject matter in books on rural economics published abroad has little relevance to the peculiar conditions and problems of Indian agriculture. There is no paucity of literature on the problems confronting Indian agriculture and the lines on which these can be successfully solved. Almost all the economic aspects of the agricultural problem in India have been thoroughly discussed in a number of classical reports published by the Government, such as the Reports of the Royal Commission on Agriculture in India, the Maclagan Committee on Co-operation, the Central Banking Enquiry Committee and the various Provincial Banking Enquiry Committees, the Provincial Committees on Co-operation, and the reports of Sir John Russell on the Working of the Imperial Council of Agricultural Research and of Dr. N. C. Wright on the Development of the Cattle and Dairy Industries in India.
