Doubling Farmers' Income

Agriculture plays an important role in the overall growth of the Indian economy. While the share of agriculture in GDP has declined sharply during the last five decades the dependence of the rural workforce on agriculture for employment has not declined in the same proportion. This has widened income disparity between the agricultural and non-agricultural sectors. A Committee chaired by Dr Ashok Dalwai, was set up at the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, Government of India, in April 2016 to look into various aspects of growth in farmers’ income. The Committee has adopted NCAER as one of the knowledge partners in this work. The Report of the Committee is structured through 14 volumes. The draft versions of the first four volumes of the “Strategy for Doubling Farmers’ Income by 2022” have been uploaded on the website of the Department of Agriculture Cooperation & Farmers Welfare.
