Introduction
Economic transformation of a country like India 
crucially depends on the performance of its 
Agriculture and Allied sectors. 
This sector happens to be the largest source of 
livelihood in India. Our goal of food security also 
depends on the performance of this sector. 
As high as 70% of rural households depend on 
agriculture for their livelihood, with 82% of the 
farmers being in the small and marginal category. 
The objective of inclusiveness in development has to be 
realised through a focus on rural development where 
agriculture can deliver significantly.

The share of Agriculture and Allied activities in GVA of the country has 
declined from 18.2%(2018-19) to 16.5%(2019-20).

growth in non-agri sectors owing to the structural changes in the economy.

Real GVA growth rate of Agriculture, Forestry & Fishing Sector is estimated to 
grow at 2.8% in 2019-20 as compared to 2.9% in 2018-19. 
Gross Capital Formation(GCF) in Agriculture & Allied sectors
