Agrarian Reforms and Economic Development:


The land reforms in a country can play an effective role in its development if there exist certain circumstances and conditions in a country. The land reforms are unable to remove the obstacles in the way of social and economic development. The land reforms perhaps, will not be able to reduce the. population, and enhance employment opportunities in the country. The countries which are heavily endowed with population the agri. sector fails to absorb such rising population, even before land reforms and after land reforms. It is the non-agri. sector which can absorb the increased population.


The land reforms just feel the problem of poverty, but they are unable to put it off. The economic development through reforms will be possible only if both agri. and industrial sectors support each other. Moreover, after land reforms there will rise new issues pertaining with manpower, technology and land consequent upon new agri. sector. Each country has its own stage of economic development. Therefore, the views regarding land reform would also be different. In the initial stage of economic development unequal income distribution is considered something necessary. But due to land reforms the inequalities in income distribution will decrease.


When the process of development in a country starts it requires a big increase both in respect of food as well as in respect of raw material. Therefore, the land reforms should aim at increasing the agri. output both the staple food as well as cash crops. Moreover, when agri. output increases the exports could be increased to finance the process of industrialization and development. Therefore, the land reforms must aim at removing those obstacles which restrict agri. output. Once when the society is industrialized people will be able to get the jobs in non-agri. sectors. The political monopolies will come to an end and the society will be democratized and educated. People will become aware of with their rights and obligations. In such state of affairs it will not be necessary to re-distribute the lands. The agri. sector will become industry where rather reforms the agri. sector will have to be assisted with subsidies and tax rebates.
