Abstract

Green revolution has been the major success story of free India. The nation that was frequently plagued by famines and chronic food shortage before green revolution, we are today in position where we are contending with the problem of surplus. From a food grain production around 55 million tons at the time of independence, we now boost of production of more than 250 million tons of food grain (2011). Agriculture has been a source of livelihood for more than two thirds of our population. Unlike developed nation, agriculture still remains the backbone of our country. To free India from its reliance on the developed nations for its food need, agriculture was promoted in a big way. Agriculture in India is not merely a business enterprise; it is more a way of life. Indian agriculture is undergoing rapid transformation since the introduction of green revolution technology. The recent policy of liberalization and globalization has opened up new avenues for agriculture modernization. This has not only stressed on improving agricultural inputs, infrastructural facilities in rural areas but liberalizing inputs reducing subsidies, loosening ceiling laws and generating agricultural surplus for home and international markets. In view of the increasing prosperity in the rural areas demands are being raised for agricultural taxation and according industry status to agriculture.
