    Abstract :
    India has 1.21 billion population according to the 2011 census. Most of the people depend on the agriculture sector. We are aware about the deep crisis of the farm sector since decades in India. Thousands of farmers committed suicides in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra and some other parts of India. Employment is not growing on par with the population growth. Without development of the agriculture sector there is no chance to create employment to the rural youth. Particularly in our India on the basis of the natural resources we should think to establish Agri-Based Industries. But the Govt. is not keen to make relevant policies in support of Agri-Industries and farm sectors. For this reason lakhs of farmers all over India are shifting to other sectors instead of continuing agriculture.
