Abstract

Urbanisation, along with becoming a universal trend, has also emerged as a significant driver of agricultural transition in the developing world. More and more people from rural parts of India migrate to urban centers in search of non-farm livelihood options and for better living conditions. Urbanisation is closely coupled with transformation of traditional rural economies into modern industrial economies through irreversible land use change. The land remaining under farming is also influenced by urban demand with mixed outcomes in production and livelihoods. India exhibits this reciprocity of urbanisation and farming prominently.
