ANSWER
MINISTER OF AGRICULTURE AND FARMERS WELFARE 

(SHRI NARENDRA SINGH TOMAR)

(a) to (d): Agriculture, being a State subject, the State Governments take appropriate measures for development of agriculture in the State. However, Government of India supplements the efforts of States through appropriate policy measures and budgetary support and various schemes/ programmes. The various schemes/ programmes of the Government of India are meant for the welfare of farmers by increasing production, remunerative returns and income support to farmers.

Agriculture Growth Rate

Growth Rate of Gross Value Added (GVA) in Agriculture and Allied sector, as per the First Revised Estimates for 2019-20 released on 29th January, 2021 by Central Statistics Office (CSO) at Constant 2011- 12 Prices during 2019-20 is 4.3%.

The Government constituted an Inter-ministerial Committee in April, 2016 to examine issues relating to “Doubling of Farmers Income” and recommend strategies to achieve the same. The Committee submitted its Report to the Government in September, 2018 containing the strategy for doubling of farmers’ income by the year 2022. After acceptance of the DFI Committee recommendations, the Government has constituted an ‘Empowered Body’ to review and monitor the progress.

The Government has been pursuing the target of doubling farmers’ income.

The Government has adopted several developmental programmes, schemes, reforms and policies that focus on higher incomes for the farmers. All these policies & programmes are being supported by higher budgetary allocations, non-budgetary financial resources by way of creating Corpus Funds, and supplementary income transfers under PM-KISAN. The latest major intervention includes the ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat – Agriculture package’ which includes comprehensive market reforms and creation of ‘Agricultural Infrastructure Fund (AIF)’ worth Rs. 1 lakh crore.

All these initiatives are expected to achieve the annual target and double the farmers’ income by 2022 as targeted.
