Cost benefit analysis of price support and input subsidy to achieve wheat production target in India



Cost benefit analysis of price support and input subsidy to achieve wheat production target in India



Agricultural Situation in India 38(12): 809-812



The paper illustrates the effects of Indian Government policies to increase food output by analyzing the price support and fertilizer subsidy programmes aimed at achieving national self-sufficiency in wheat. The criteria used to compare the price support and input subsidy approaches were: (1) total cost to the government; (2) total social benefit and cost of the programmes; (3) distribution of benefits; and (4) foreign exchange saving.
