The positive agricultural price policy and land reforms in favour of the peasants would play an important role in solving the problem of agrarian crisis in India. However, some more efforts are needed in this direction. Besides, an increasing government investment in research and development activities, marketing of food grains, financial help for loans and machinery on hire basis from cooperative institutions, subsidies in favour of peasants, to provide all types of help to producers’ cooperative organisations for the processing of agricultural produce and providing financial help to farmers at the time of natural calamities will help to uplift the level of living of farmers. Education and health facilities will help to improve the lot of families of marginal and small peasants, agricultural labourers and rural artisans.
