Despite significant growth during the planning era, the occupational structure in India has not undergone a radical change. Still some 65 per cent of the population continues to live in villages, seeking employment and living in the agricultural sector. Rural India continues to lag behind the rest of the economy leading to growing gulf in the rural-urban disparities in incomes and living conditions. Poverty, iliteracy, ill-health and civic inertia are all concentrated in the rural areas. This book "Agriculture and Rural Development" brings out the emerging challenges and discusses the policies and programmes for holistic and sustainable development of rural India. Different issues that come up for analysis in this book are classified into SIX PARTS with contents spread over 36 chapters. The author makes extensive use of the latest data and information from the officially published reports. The author of the book advocates the Gandhian Model of Development with decentralised administration and planning with village as the growth centre. Also, the book highlights the relevance of the high level committees like the National Committee on farmers headed by Dr. M.S. Swaminathan and the Model for urbanisation of rural areas advocated by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Inclusive growth, it is pointed out, becomes meaningful, if policy measures are on the lines of the Gandhian Model of Development. Among others, issues covered in this book are: Environment and Sustainable Development; Benefits from the Common Property Resources (CPR) and steps to safeguard CPR; Women Empowerment; Human Resource Development in Rural India; Health for All; Education for All; Regional Imbalances and Social Tensions and Special Economic Zones and their impact on Agriculture. The book meets the requirements of graduate and postgraduate students in economics and rural development. Very rightly, the book concludes that if work culture becomes the motto of all citizens, coupled with value best on native culture of this sacred land, path is well set and then india is bound to emerge as a `DEVELOPED NATION`.
