Abstract

Food production has been one of the major concerns for Indian political climate. Major agricultural changes and policies were initiated to bring more agricultural productivity in India. Union Government also strives to bring more growth in Agricultural sector through five year plan initiations. Yet, result seems to be slower agricultural growth and lack of proper vision & implementation. Major concerns like water availability, improper distribution & water management, pollution, increasing population, rural migration to urban, economic diversion towards other sectors, and increasing rural poverty are in increasing trend. Authors bring statistical evidence for above mentioned concerns and decision makers to consider these issues critically for any policy initiations. Authors stress that unless agricultural productivity increases, average Indian poverty statistics will not reduce. By 2030, India will reach first in world population, might also face severe food crisis. It’s now time for Indian government to rethink on their economic policies to bring life for dieing agricultural sector.
