Abstract

Credit is an important instrument of acquiring command over the use of working capital, fIxed capital and consumption goods. In the wake of Green Revolution, land and labour have receded into the background as predominant factors of growth. Use of capital and adoption of modern techniques of production which have become major sources of growth of agricultural output necessitate access to credit markets for financing their use. Institutional sources of credit have become quite ,ignificant during the last few years. The rapid expansion of credit from institutional sources can be seen from various indicators.
