DESIGN OF STUDY
Scope: Agriculture in India is the means of livelihood of almost two thirds of the work force in the country. It has always been India’s most important economic sector. Realizing the importance of Indian agricultural production for economic development, the central Government of India has played an active role in all aspects of agricultural development. Planning is centralized, and plan priorities, policies, and resource allocations are decided at the central level. Food and price policy also are decided by the central government. Thus, although agriculture in India is constitutionally the responsibility of the states rather than the central government, the latter plays a key role in formulating policy and providing financial resources for agriculture.
Limitation: This report is a study on the Agricultural Finance in India, its credit needs and the schemes and loans offered by the nationalized banks but, however a lot of problems were faced during the research work in finding the information. The time constraints and the length & depth of study are limited to the requirements of the University of Mumbai....
