Efficiency of Investments in IRDP-A Study of Uttar Pradesh

This paper attempts to evaluate the Integrated Rural Development Programme (IRDP) and examines whether the programme can be justified in the tight of the two major concerns of the recent debate on the subject, viz, the efficiency of IRDP investments for the poorest of the poor and the magnitude of increase in their income from these assets, regardless of whether or not they are able to cross the poverty line.

Current Agrarian Scene Policy Alternatives

C H Hanumantha Rao The present agricultural strategy has enabled us to accumulate stocks of foodgrains sufficient to meet the internal demand without recourse to imports, but this 'self-sufficiency' has been achieved at the cost of other equally important objectives of agricultural development, viz, imparting stability to output growth, eradication of rural poverty and reduction in regional disparities.

Poverty and Development-Characteristics of Less-Developed Regions in India

For a large country like India with enormous regional disparities in development and differences in the institutional framework deriving, in quite a few cases, from cultural diversities, any single strategy for the whole country may not prove to be appropriate.

Agricultural Growth and Rural Poverty-Some Lessons from Past Experience

Some Lessons from Past Experience C H Hanumantha Rao There is a strong complementary relationship between the growth of agricultural output and employment generation in Indian agriculture because of the existence of large underutilised resources such as land and labour.

Socio-Political Factors and Agricultural Policies

The concept of 'trade-off' between growth and improved distribution is used not only to rationalise and perpetuate the prevailing unequal distribution of agricultural land but also to justify the intensive use (per acre) of scarce inputs like fertilisers and water on large farms and in the developed regions when the social product would be greater by spreading such inputs relatively thinly over a larger number of farms in a wider area. In view of their greater capacity to invest and bear risk, large farmers and the developed regions intensify the use of such inputs producing less than socially optimum output.

Strategy for Removal of Poverty-Lopsidedness of Fifth Plan Approach

Lopsidedness of Fifth Plan Approach FOR the first time in the history of Indian planning, one finds in the Approach to the Fifth Plan the concrete objective of providing minimum consumption for the bottom 30 per cent of the population. The monthly per capita consumption of the lowest 30 per cent of the population, at 1971-72 prices, was estimated for 1973-74 to be Rs 22.90 in the rural areas and Rs 25.17 in the urban areas. By 1978-79, the monthly per capita consumption of this lowest 30 per cent of the population is to rise to Rs 36,64 in the rural areas and to Rs 39.60 in the urban areas. Thus the increase, over the Fifth Plan period from the initial 1973-74 level, works out to 60 per cent for the rural poor and 50 per cent for the urban poor.

Agricultural Taxation-Raj Committee s Report

Raj Committee's Report C H Hanumantha Rao The myth of extracting significant revenue from the agricultural sector through direct (progressive) taxation has persisted throughout the planning period in India. The Raj Committee on Taxation of Agricultural Wealth and Income apparently sees the reality but instead of exploding this myth and coming out boldly with proposals for an equitous tax structure, it has decided to perpetuate some of the regres- sive elements in the existing tax structure

Differential Rates of Interest - A Comment

September 9, 1972 Differential Rates of Interest A Comment C H Hanumantha Rao IN his article "On Differential Rates of Interest" (July 1, p 1279) A K Dasgnoti observes that although banks should charge differential rates of interest with a view to discriminating in favour of the weaker customers, they should operate on commercial lines and seek to maximise profits subject to some subsidy to the weaker sections. According to him, such an operation on commercial lines is possible because banks have a monopolistic position in the credit market and the system of differential interest rates amounts to monopoly price discrimination, if only re-lending by the weaker sections can be discouraged, as the elasticity of demand for credit of the poorer sections such as small farmers is higher than that of the richer sections.
