The rural non-farm sector already generates over a fifth of all rural employment in India, and as much as a third of the total income of rural households. However, Indian policy-makers have failed to see that the rural non-farm sector can make a critical contribution to employment growth and economic development.

This book provides the most comprehensive analysis of the sector available for any developing country, and puts forward a coherent and wide-ranging strategy for promoting the sector to meet national goals of full employment, economic growth and poverty alleviation.

Drawing on new institutional economics and organizational analysis, the authors provide an in-depth assessment of the successes and failures of development policies, and the organizations that implement them, for regulation, promotion, credit and producer representation. The analysis is backed by a wealth of concrete illustrations derived from extensive fieldwork in eight major states.
