As we know that agriculture is the backbone of the Indian economy and here crop loans can be of great help to the farmers for increasing agricultural production. Availability of low interest and adequate crop loans to farmers, mainly small and marginal farmers, through commercial banks not only helps in increasing crop productivity but also improves their economic condition. Hence Centre is trying to connect with more and more number of farmers and has asked them to take crop loans from commercial banks to improve productivity.
