A framework for an agricultural policy model for India is described. The broad objective is to construct a descriptive, computable model with which one can:

-- evaluate the consequences of various government policies which have been tried from time to time and some of which have been suggested but not yet tried; and

-- examine these policies in the context of the open economy of India which operates in the setting of bilateral, multilateral, and international cooperation, aid and trade.

The model is structured to both reflect the agricultural scene in India and be computable within the availability of empirical information.

The importance of various objectives of the government policies and the instruments of policies which are employed are identified following a brief examination of the agricultural and general economic scene in India.
