“With the increased momentum in promoting FPOs recently, much has been written on the successes of the past and challenges of the present. But none that’s as comprehensive as this 2022: State of Sector Report – Farmer Producer Organizations in India. Through real-life case studies and in-depth analysis, several eminent authors have reflected on a wide range of issues relevant for the sector. The importance of competent promoting agencies for capacity building of FPOs and an enabling policy environment – as key components of the ecosystem required to realise the potential of collectives – is well brought out in the report. Underscoring the vital role of technology in strengthening and scaling the FPOs is another contribution of the report. Additionally, I am sure all the stakeholders will find the data and information presented in the report very valuable in carrying out their day-to-day work.”

A Reluctant Bureaucrat is an incisive study of the administrative system in India interwoven with a personal account of life lived within the realm of active government service.
