The agrarian distress is deepening. For the first time since independence, a fall in the total cultivated area has been reported. With the hike in the prices of inputs and the sharp decrease in subsidies, many farmers are simply finding agricultural activity not providing them enough to make even both ends meet. This is resulting in continued incidence of distress suicides. The state of the workers is no better. The share of wages as a proportion of GDP now stands a little over 10 per cent compared to over 25 per cent in 1990-91.
