According to data from the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy,
unemployment rate in the country has doubled from 3.39% in Jul 2017 to
6.23% in Mar 2018. It is expected to further increase to 6.75% in Apr
2018. The number of jobs in the FY18 declined to 406 million as
compared to 406.7 million in FY17. Volatility in the agriculture sector due
to drought, unseasonal rains, bad crop, etc. affect the Indian workforce as
almost half of it is dependent on agriculture.
According to the joint secretary Ministry of Agriculture, agricultural
credit is growing every year. He further informed that the agricultural
credit stood at Rs. 10 lakh crore in FY18. He cited the need for increasing
the flow of agricultural credit to small farmers and providing loan to
tenant cultivators. The chief of Warehousing Development and
Regulatory Authority informed that electronic issuance of negotiable
warehousing receipts would soon start. This would help farmers get the
much needed bank finance against their stocks.

resolution process.
