Concrete plan of action for rain harvesting needed
The agricultural economy of India needs a change in the financial year to agricultural year (July 01 - June 30) from April 01 - March 31 (a ritual day to waste the resources in the name of target oriented approach ) with a concrete plan of action for ‘rain harvesting’ which is capable of taking care of the problems of floods, water logging, droughts and declining water table in all times to come.

To improve the financial situation and bring efficiency, sufficiency and equity in Indian economy, there is a strong case for suitable pricing for birth, death and marriage certificates which can be used for human resource development activities including education, health, environment, tourism and above all food security.

Keeping in view the internal threats including crime, suicide by the farmers and unemployed youth-the cause of causes for terrorism of various kinds, India needs a separate budget on defence like railways. Let it become the agenda of a new Government after 2014 elections. 

This is necessary and sufficient to win the confidence of the people who deserve national security justifying appropriate defence expenditure which is an engine of economic growth.

The slogan “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan’ has merit for bringing barren land under cultivation for enhancing agriculture production for implementing National Food Security (NFSA) Act 2013. Let us develop military farms in a big manner for the great cause. It is perfectly in tune with the vision of Bharat Ratan Dr. B.R. Ambedkar for acquiring land for nationalization of agriculture.
