Changing consumption pattern and rural industrialistion
Dr. Alok Agrawal
Traditionally, artisans in a village include blacksmiths carpenters, potters, shoe-makers and weavers. Thus, their role in a traditional rural economy was towards making the village a self-sufficient unit. In the present context, however, villages are getting increasingly modernised and the tendency among farmers is to acquire more and more of improved farm machinery and equipment. The present paper tries to identify the reasons of Changing Consumption Pattern and Rural Industrialistion.
