             7.3  A trend in the percentage share of agriculture and allied sectors to total GVA of the economy
             at current prices for the last ten years is presented in Figure 3. The share of the sector in total
             GVA of the economy has a long-term trend of around 18 per cent. The share of the agriculture
             & allied sector in total GVA, however, improved to 20.2 per cent in the year 2020-21 and 18.8
             per cent in 2021-22.

                                    & Allied Sector to Total GVA (at current prices)

             7.4  A trend in the distribution of share of GVA of agriculture among its constituents is presented
             in Figure 4. Higher growth in allied sectors as compared to crop sector has obvious implications
             in terms of increasing importance of the former in total agricultural GVA vis-a-vis the later. It
             may be observed that the share of the livestock and fishing & aquaculture in total agricultural
             GVA has been improving during the period. Recognising the increasing importance of allied
             sectors, the Committee on Doubling Farmers’ Income (DFI, 2018) considers dairying, livestock,
             poultry, fisheries and horticulture as engines of high growth and has recommended a focussed
             policy with a concomitant support system.
