Abstract

As we live in the era of inclusive development, it is quite important that all sectors and segments must have a deserving place the realm of economy policies at all levels. No matter what policies have been implemented by the government over the years towards accomplishing the much cherished objective of inclusive growth, the agricultural sector that feeds nearly more than fifty percent of Indians finds itself in doldrums, having witnessed a persistent plummeting of its growth rates. The policy advocacies have not suitably encompassed the imperatives of agricultural sector although intermittently the need to rectify this loophole in framing policies have been rightly voiced by experts at many a time. The role of agriculture in sustaining the quality of growth rate has long been recognised. Agriculture sector through its linkage with all other sectors propels the growth spectrum and therefore the foundation of growth should have its foot landing on the firm support of the agriculture sector. The lukewarm attention that has been paid to the agriculture sector and its potential consequences are identified by many experts. For instance, Dr.Manmohan Singh, former Prime Minster, once said the agricultural sector in India has been beset with the problems of policy and technological fatigue.
