Narendra Singh Tomar is the Agriculture and Farmer Welfare Minister of India
Close to 60 percent of India's population finds agriculture as the means and source of earning their livelihood, directly or indirectly. In fact, along with the agrarian society, all the non-agrarian sections of the population are also heavily dependent on agriculture, for obvious reasons. Therefore, the role of the regulatory body, that is, the Ministry of Agriculture becomes very challenging and demanding owing to the vastness of its jurisdiction.
The Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India is the supreme body that works towards the formulation and administration of the rules, regulations and laws related to agriculture in India. The major sections that the ministry looks after are agriculture, food-processing and co-operation.
Presently, the ministry is presided over by Union Minister of Agriculture Radha Mohan Singh.
