India lives in agriculture. Agriculture and allied activities contribute 20.19% of the GDP of the country. India is the world’s second-largest producer of vegetables and fruits. India is also the largest exporter of wheat, sugar, spices, millet, pulses, and milk. Agriculture has been considered predominantly as an unorganised sector due to the quantum of production and the vast spread of the rural population working on it. The government has introduced various licences to regulate, and bring transparency and equality in pricing for agricultural products.
