Abstract

A defining feature of agricultural economic policy making in India until the nineties has been its inward orientation with high government intervention. In an agricultural economy like India which has highly inequitable socio-economic structure, an intervention by the government is very important. The high rate of growth of population on the one side and the sluggishness of the industrial sector on the other side gave rise to a very high demand for land.
