Economic status of farmers: A case study of Haryana State
Haryana is one of the 29 states in India, situated in North India. It was carved out of the former state of East Haryana on 1 November 1966 on a linguistic basis. It stands 21st in terms of its area, which is spread about 44,212 km2(17,070 sq mi). The city of Chandigarh is its capital while the National Capital Region city of Faridabad is the most populous city of the state and the city of Gurugram is financial hub of NCR with major Fortune 500 companies located in it. When we talk of socio- economic status, the issue of farmers committing suicides takes a top priority. Farmers have been committing suicides increasing day by day in India over the last few years. Suicides by cultivators and agriculture labourers have been reported in Haryana since the mid 1980s. This is caused by a multi-dimensional crisis of the rural in the post-green revolution phase of agricultural development.
