The Green Revolution in India started in the late s and with its success India attained food self-sufficiency within a decade. However, this first „wave‟ of the Green Revolution was largely confined in .   This book explores the economy and society of Provincial India in the post-Green Revolution period. It argues that the low 'quality' of capital development in India's villages and small towns is the joint outcome of the informal economic organisation, that is strongly biased in favour of capital, and of the complex stratification of the workforce along class and caste lines.

        Importance of the Informal Sector The service sector in advanced countries accounts for a large and growing share of total GDP because of the growth of high-value-added services. But in contrast, developing countries usually have a large service sector that is composed mostly of low-value-added service activities. This research paper asks whether the Green Revolution led to improved nutrition outcomes in Bangladesh. While agriculture is accepted as an important sector for influencing nutrition, there is a lack of rigorous evidence from such large-scale agricultural programs. The authors match data from five rounds of the Demographic Health Surveys ( to ) with district-level rice.

'Green Revolution' has opened up great opportunities of increasing foodgrain production in land scarce countries. The diffusion of the new technology is the key to maintaining the food population balance in Bangladesh, since there is little scope of increasing production by expanding cultivated land.

Population Growth and Green Revolution in Bangladesh There are different causes, which contributed to the population growth of Bangladesh.
