Abstract

Agriculture is one of the few sectors of the economy that expanded consistently after independence and successfully satisfied domestic demands. Since gaining independence, the agricultural sector has been the main driver of India’s prosperity. Objective: The study’s goal is to illustrate India’s agricultural self-sufficiency (Aatmanirbharata). Design and methodology: This study is mainly descriptive in nature, utilising both quantitative and qualitative methods. Its design is based on secondary data. The information is gathered from secondary sources of Indian knowledge, including books, articles, websites, and online journals published over time. Findings and Discussion: Indian agriculture has experienced a remarkable metamorphosis since the nation’s independence, transforming it from a largely agrarian society to a thriving agricultural superpower. Many laws, advancements in technology, and changes in society have all contributed to this change. In conclusion, the evolution of agricultural policies, practices, and initiatives over time demonstrates the adaptability and tenacity of Indian farmers and policymakers. India’s joint efforts to promote innovative, inclusive, and sustainable farming practices will support growth and prosperity for many years to come. Adoption of new farming technologies that are environmentally sustainable and climate resilient will be at the centre of a second green revolution.

Keywords: Domestic demand, Self-sufficiency, Indian agriculture, Agricultural superpower.
