Wealth effect remains weak, impacting large-ticket consumption 18.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
The third part of JM Financial’s Rural Safari focuses on real estate, income growth and how it aids in consumption. The survey shows that real estate prices are flat to down in most places though there are some early signs of pick-up around NCR. It also finds that agri-household income will improve from 7 per cent growth in FY18 to near double-digit growth in FY19. Consumption sentiment is largely steady and any impact from the issues in the financial sector should be short-lived Land prices continue to be weak Rural land prices that skyrocketed by at least 5x-10x over the last decade on improved road connectivity, urbanisation, remittances and speculation have been soft for the last few quarters. Barring regions adjacent to urban areas or where large infrastructure projects are coming up, there is no evidence of land transactions taking place as yet. Land prices were weak after 2015 on average, and after demonetisation, transaction volumes significantly eased. Measures to reduce the flow of black ...

Modest Growth in non-farm income 16.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
The second part of JM Financial’s Rural Safari series shows how non farm income, even though slow in acceleration, helped to partially offset the decline in farm income over the past two years. It draws attention to the political aspect of farm loan waivers, saying demand for them is likely to rise as general elections approach. The survey, however, notes that such relief provided by the government to meet financial needs also helps boost rural consumption Rural income is increasingly diversifying away from agriculture to non-farm income, which currently accounts for  40 per cent of total agri-household income. Major sources of non-farm income are dairy and poultry, wage-based occupation, sand mining, tractor rental income and small businesses. An increase in infrastructure activity creates jobs and aids rural income. As the agri-economy improves, it is likely to create additional demand in the non-farm sector, including processing, transportation and packaging through backward and forward production ...

How price impact affects the farming community 15.10.2018 Financial Chronicle
Steady production growth and increased availability of horticulture putting pressure on prices: Horticulture production has continued to outpace growth in foodgrain production for the last five years and in FY18, the total horticulture output was estimated at 308 million tonnes, 8 per cent higher than foodgrain production. However, in terms of storage infrastructure, horticulture faces massive shortage and currently only 10 per cent of the total production of fruits and vegetables can be stored in cold storages. In the interim, price challenges and volatility continue to remain high for horticulture crops, particularly for perishables. After a weak FY15 (-0.5 per cent YoY), vegetable production has continued to increase over the last three years and channel checks indicate that wastages (estimated to be 30-35 per cent of total production) have continued to decrease as there is increased awareness and use of better farming practices and post-harvest handling on average, leading to increased availability ...
