IADP What Holds It Down

Report of the Expert Committee on Assessment and Evaluation of the Intensive Agricultural District Pro- gramme, Government of India, 1966. THE EXPERT COMMITTEE appointed by the Government of India, with S R Sen as Chairman, for assessing and evaluating the Intensive Agricultural District Programme, has recently submitted its second Report. The Report is now available in mimeographed form. The I A D Programme was launched in 1960-61 and the present report covers its operation for 5 years for which period the Programme was originally conceived. In the first Report prepared in 1963, the assessment and evaluation of only the first group of seven districts were undertaken while the present one deals with all the 15 districts that have so far been brought under this programme. Since the I A D Programme is the king-pin of the current agricultural strategy of the Government, the report needs careful study.
