Crop Increase Urged
By Indian Minister
•y tha Aueciatad Pratt
NEW DELHI.—“It is a shame that
India, where 75 per cent of her
325,000,000 people are agriculturists,
could not produce sufficient to meet
her needs,” says Industry and Sup
ply Minister Dr. Shyamaprasad
Even to meet the present low
standard of nutrition, Dr. Mook
herjee says, India is importing at
the rate of 2,000,000 tons per year,
costing her about $300,000,000.
“Ten per cent increase in the
present production in India will
cover the margin,” he says.
