India is majorly a country having a bulk of its population living in rural areas with more than 2/3rd of the population and 70 percent of the workforce located in rural areas. Rural economy constitutes a major chunk i.e. 46 percent of India's national income. Despite urbanization being on the rise, more than half of the country's people are likely to be living in rural areas even by 2050. Thus, the development and growth of India cannot be imagined without the rural economy being strengthened as it holds the key to India's overall development. Traditionally in India, agriculture and allied activities have played a major role in the rural economy and employment generation. Apart from agriculture, livestock farming, production of traditional local handicrafts, and service industry like construction, carpentry,etc have been another major area of employment generation in the rural economy.
