Dr. Veena Rani
Agriculture sector in Indian economy plays pivotal role for the growth and development of an economy. In India Agriculture sector at present provides livelihood to 65%to 70% of total population. The sector provides employment to 54.6% of country’s workforce and is the single largest private sector occupation. But it can be observed that its contribution in real GDP has fallen to 13.9% in 2013-14  which is a matter of great serious concern. Every year various types of policies are being adopted by Government of India for the welfare of farmers but it is a matter of great concern that every year government has to waive of loans of most of the farmers as they are unable to repay the loans and hence commit suicide. Farmers’ suicide cases is a serious threat for our economy. The aim of the paper is to focus light on the ways and means from our ancient Vedic philosophy to make our Indian Agriculture prosperous one as well as to extract the farmers from the heavy burden of loans. The Researcher has searched out the knowledge about Vedic literature for the welfare of farmers from Swami Ramswarup Yogacharya who is a great philosopher of four Vedas
