Agriculture Infrastructure Development

The National Development Council resolves that agricultural development strategies must be reoriented to meet the needs of the farmers and calls upon the Central and the State governments to evolve a strategy to rejuvenate agriculture. The NDC reaffirms its commitment to achieve 4 per cent annual growth in the agricultural sector during the 11th Plan. After a lapse of six/seven years of implementation, the achievements in different sectors could not make much headway due to dearth of necessary infrastructure and other factors. The Department proposes to improve infrastructure and connected supporting services, in view of the above and in order to augment food grains production and to attain self-sufficiency,
