  • An excellent and quick effort to review The Eleventh Volume of the Report of the Committee on Doubling Farmers’ Income (DFI) which has examined the status and reforms needed in the agricultural extension system in India. Rightly pointed out that the Report of the 12thPlan Working Group on Agricultural Extension (Planning Commission, 2012) should have been consulted while drafting this report since that presents detailed analysis on extension and had made several relevant recommendations. At least such documents deserved a mention in the list of references. Congratulations & thanks to Dr Prasad and AESA for bringing before us this critical analysis well on time.
