Abstract

The Arthashastra of Kautilya, written about 2500 years ago by the founder minister of the empire of Chandra Gupta Masurya, describes in detail how agriculture was the basic source of revenue for the state and what were the duties of the state for development of agriculture. Agriculture has always been the prime activity in India. However, presently the agriculture sector face many vagaries, due to the long term neglect of the sector. However, the government has now been taking many steps to revive the condition of Indian agriculture. Thus, Kisan Credit Card Scheme was launched by GoI and NABARD in 1998-99. The present study deals with the importance, benefits availed from the scheme and problems faced by the farmers in hill areas of District Nainital. The results are primary survey based which reveal that the scheme has helped farmers to avail timely and adequate amount of credit for agricultural purposes.
