    1. high i am a lecturer for economics i think this govt has taken some good steps to improve the agriculture but still we have to keep in mind that in 1955 the overall output from agriculture was about 56% right now it is approx around 18% so its a alaraming situation their should be another greenrevolution so that we can improve the productivity , their should be such mecanism that easily any land suitable for agriculture shouldnot be let to construction purpose

    2. Excellent post on The India Budget 2012. Marketing is very important for any business. more leads mean more customers which in turn means, more income. Good to hear that Midday meals has been extended INR119 bln or $2.4 bln. Thanks fpr sharing.
