Unemployment and Agriculture: How Rural Management can bridge the gap?



When leaders are asked to give an example of a nation that has optimally used its youth to contribute to overall growth, India is often seen as a bright ray of hope. Certainly, all the top positions in world-acclaimed organizations are occupied by Indians of diverse cast and creed. However, the reality is far from the pink image painted above: the youth of the nation is in the grip of unemployment. It is even surprising to know that this has infiltrated the rural section, revealing the serious deficiencies of the agricultural segment in general.

Unemployment is also a rural problem.

Why point the finger at agriculture? India is essentially a rural nation, where agriculture, horticulture, handicrafts, fishing, poultry and dairy products are the main contributors to the rural economy. However, the contribution of agriculture has declined, creating a space for inequalities. Here, unemployment is mainly due to capital shortages, poor exploitation of natural resources and inadequate employment opportunities.

The main problem lies in the nature of work, since agriculture depends on the benevolence of nature. It is the rain that makes the sector prosper and, unfortunately, India has rains that last only 3 to 4 months. In addition, it is labor-intensive work, while, in the current era, no one prefers to work throughout the year. Naturally, there has been a major change in dependence on agriculture as its main source of income. From 60%, it is constantly reduced due to problems such as price fluctuations, droughts, floods, pest outbreaks and diseases, etc., which generates income uncertainty. In addition, the un glamorous image of agriculture keeps young people away: there is the misconception that a farmer is short, which has spread for centuries.

However, Sector with many opportunities:

The segment has great potential: the rural economy contributes to 50 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, and also represents 50 percent of the workforce. About 75 percent of new factories built in the last three decades have emerged in rural areas, representing 75 percent of all new manufacturing jobs. Since 2000, GDP per capita has grown to 6.2 percent per year in rural India compared to 4.2 percent in urban areas. The main responsibility is to attract youth, which forms a large part of the unemployed segments.
