Rural Economy key to PM Modi’s $5 trillion vision
On June 15, 2019, PM Modi announced the formation of a powerful task force to suggest structural reforms aimed at boosting farm productivity & sale of agricultural produce in order to boost farmers’ income.
This will be a key component of the PM’s vision of making India a $5 trillion economy by 2024. PM Modi will be the chair the governing council of the think-tank, which also includes all state chief ministers as its members. The committee will have a core focus on the implementation of the Model APMC Act but also look at other aspects of the agricultural economy – like a re-evaluation of the Essential Commodities Act in order ease of restrictions on farm exports & liberalisation of land leasing norms.
The overall objective is to boost the income of farmers by ensuring fair remuneration for agricultural produce, streamlining of supply, driving investment into the sector, etc. In turn, these reforms will boost the overall rural & Indian economy.
You can also benefit from this development by investing in the Rising Rural Demand smallcase. This smallcase invests in companies that derive a significant amount of their revenue from rural India, thus allowing investors to benefit from this expected growth in the rural economy.
