India needs an investment of Rs 6,399 billion for doubling farmers’ real income by 2022-23 say these reports of the interministerial committee on doubling farmer’s income released by the Ministry of Agriculture

The first volume of the Report of the Committee on Doubling Farmers’ Income (DFI) intended to examine the growth trends in farmers’ income since independence and analyse growth in associated support infrastructure (roads, electricity, irrigation, market yards, etc.). However, it is observed, that there has been no uniform methodology in the past to specifically ascertain farmers’ incomes and comparable data benchmarks are thus not immediately available over long periods.
