Author(s):

Abstract:
The National Sample Survey Organization (NSSO) has conducted a series of studies in the new millennium to ascertain the socio- economic condition of the Indian farmers covering education level, living standard, farming practices, income and productive assets, awareness and access to modern technology and rural indebtedness. To meet these requirements the NSSO conducted a Situation Assessment Survey of the farmers in 2003 and brought out estimates of food consumption, incidence of consumption and consumption expenditures across the farmers. The consumer basket included all food items and non- food items. It may be mentioned that this is one off survey on the state of living conditions of the Indian farmers. Nonetheless, the cross- sectional evidence contained in the report provides a good account of the consumer expenditure of the farmers and the regional characteristics in terms of priorities in food consumption. It is under this perspective the IDR Group thought to analyze the data relating to specific items of consumer basket (cereal, milk, edible oil and meat, fish and eggs) and bring out various facets of household consumption expenditure of farmers for dissemination and further discussions.
