The situation of primary education is worse in most parts of the world and Kashmir has one of the worst. Though many societies across the globe are working for improving quality of accessible education but people and govt. of kashmir are in deep sleep and can’t even dream of giving a little attention towards something that has been neglected for long. this negligence combined with incapability of administration results in destruction of childhood and as a result we are not getting the youths they could have been. These youths could not only have contributed positively for the overall development of state but also on global scale.But with dReaMer’s movement their is a new hope
agriculture sector plays a strategic role in the process of economic development of Jammu and Kashmir and India, and on an average 70% of the population are still getting livelihood and employment from this sector coupled with its allied sectors as this sector contributes around 27% of the states income. Presently agriculture sector is contributing 13.7% of the GDP at national level and at state level it is contributing around 21.09%. Jammu and Kashmir is well known for its Paddy crop followed by maize, oilseeds pulses, vegetables fodder and wheat where as in Jammu region the most eatable and produced crop is wheat which is followed by maize, paddy, pulses, oilseeds etc where as barley is the major cereal crop followed by wheat in Ladakh. Jammu and Kashmir has also got the monopoly in terms of Saffron crop(famous all over the world due to its quality) which is being produced in the district Pulwama 15KM away from Srinagar. At the same time Basmati Rice is being produced in R.S Pora of Jammu division and Rajmesh of Bederwah, Kishtiwar constitute the economic significance of the state . The growth rate in respect to agriculture and allied sectors for the 12th five year plan has been targeted to be around 2.99% and as per the advances estimates growth rate for the financial year 2014-15 has been projected to be around 3.84% but at the same time the growth rate in the sector, particularly in the crop sub sector is on a decline as the percentage of deficit is continue on a high, to meet the requirements of the growing population which has resulted in the import of these gaps from the central pool.
Looking at the present situation in Jammu and Kashmir the figures in terms of production, area and yield rate are not satisfactory as the gap between deficit and requirement is increasing at an increasing rate which has gone up to 81% against the current population growth. Late figures are very disturbing and the trends have started emerging in the said sector as the farmers are losing interest subject to less remunerative. To sustain continuous growth in productivity in agriculture, profitability and sustainability is must. There is a need to create a general awareness about the knowledge, skill and techniques to enhance production, productivity and quality of food grains so that the farmers could earn a sustainable income for survival.
