This dissertation scrutinises India's agricultural landscape, tracing its historical evolution and dissecting the causes behind the prevailing agrarian crisis. It contends that the primary driver of this crisis is the escalating privatisation of the agricultural sector. Through a rigorous examination, it elucidates the influence wielded by global institutions like the IMF, World Bank, WTO, and multinational corporations on India's legislative framework. Critically appraising the 2020 agricultural bills, the study highlights their potential to exacerbate inequalities and erode food sovereignty. It advocates for the implementation of the MS Swaminathan Committee report as a pathway towards reform, emphasizing the urgent need for policies that prioritize farmer welfare and sustainable agricultural practices.
