Disparity in Income in Context of HYV

B K Chowdhury It has been suggested that the high-yielding varieties programme not only leads to and sustains unbalanced growth among the different regions but also widens the income disparity among the farming population of the same region as between the large and small farmers. This happens because the HYV programme favours the promising and developing regions in which the necessary infrastructure for steady growth already exists, and because, within the regions thus marked for growth, the small farmers are less well-endowed compared to the large farmers to take on the new technology.

B M Desai D K Desai An earlier study had indicated that farmers tend to substitute commercial hank credit for their own funds and/for other sources of finance, and that this substitution has no significant impact on farm production, This article is therefore based on the connected question: "Is inadequacy of the existing insiitu tional credit facilities a problem in changing agriculture?".

The Indian Manager of the 1980s

Arabinda Ray The history of Indian industrial management in the period since Independence has made it quite clear that while we had a strong family and hierarchical tradition, we, unlike Japan, did not choose to exploit it in building our industrial, including management, relation patterns. Instead we chose to adopt norms of the Western world as the massive amount of American management literature that has been absorbed in this country in the last two decades will testify.
