India Agricultural Distortions Study

Project Leader: Dr. Ashok Gulati
Research Team: Shweta Saini
Commencement: April 2015
Funded by: The World Bank

The objective of this project is to analyse India´s recent and prospective agricultural trade policy from the perspective of price distortions, including the role of border taxes and quantitative restrictions and domestic price interventions (taxes and subsidies such as those applying on fertiliser and other inputs, and direct price interventions). The analysis uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative/empirical approaches, diagnosing the extent to which distortions in the incentive structure affect producers’ incentives and their potential impact on trade, particularly exports.
