Agriculture is an important sector of IndianÂ economy contributing 16 percent of overall GDP withÂ 44 percent of the population getting employment fromÂ it still today. Since independence, Indian governmentÂ has taken several initiatives to improve agricultureÂ starting with first ever land reforms, development of
irrigation projects then after green revolution, subsidies,Â liberalization and many loan waiving schemes whichÂ served the development of agriculture to certain levelÂ but the contribution of agriculture sector to GDP hasÂ decreased from 1950â€™s to 2015 leading to agrarianÂ crisis. Agriculture now became no longer a profitableÂ economy as the increased cost of cultivation did notÂ keep pace with returns leading to indebtedness amongÂ farmers.
