A comparison between India and Bangladesh’s agricultural policies
India and Bangladesh are both agrarian countries; approximately 60% of their working populations are involved in agricultural activities. Over 87% of the rural people in Bangladesh and 70% of the rural people in India derive at least some income majorly from agriculture.
Recent agricultural bills in India
Recently, three reformative agricultural bills were presented in the Lok Sabha (lower house) by the government of India.
Even though agriculture comes under the state list, meaning that the state has almost autonomy over making bills related to the agricultural sector, the bills proposed by GOI bypass the state government’s powers.
