Agriculture in India is one of the most prominent sectors in its economy. India is the largest producer in the world of milk, cashew nuts, coconuts, tea, ginger, turmeric and black pepper. It also has the world's largest cattle population (193 million). The agriculture sector in India is expected to generate better momentum in the next few years due to increased investments in agricultural infrastructure such as irrigation facilities, warehousing and cold storage. Furthermore, the growing use of genetically modified crops will likely improve the yield for Indian farmers. India is expected to be self-sufficient in pulses in the coming few years due to concerted efforts of scientists to get early-maturing varieties of pulses and the increase in minimum support price.Total agricultural exports from India grew at a CAGR of 14.61 per cent over FY10-19 to reach US$ 38.54 billion in FY19. In FY20 (till November 2019) agriculture exports were US$ 22.69 billion.

India has 84% of women working for livelihood in the areas of farming and horticulture. These women need program on livelihood generation, entertainment, healthcare, beauty culture etc.

Although most women in India work and contribute to the economy in one form or another, much of their work is not documented or accounted for in official statistics. Women plow fields and harvest crops while working on farms, women weave and make handicrafts while working in household industries, women sell food and gather wood while working in the informal sector. Additionally, women are traditionally responsible for the daily household chores (e.g., cooking, fetching water, and looking after children). Since Indian culture hinders women's access to jobs in stores, factories and the public sector, the informal sector is particularly important for women. There are estimates that over 90 percent of workingwomen are involved in the informal sector.

Cloud Radio can be used to cover these aspects. It can be used to empower the women by broadcasting program on their legal rights, laws on child marriage, dowry, and related issues.

Health care, or healthcare, is the prevention, treatment, and management of illness and the preservation of mental and physical well being through the services offered by the medical, nursing, and allied health professions. India traditionally has been a rural, agrarian economy. Nearly three- quarters of the population still lives in rural areas.

Another factor driving the growth of India s healthcare sector is a rise in both infectious and chronic degenerative diseases. While ailments such as poliomyelitis, leprosy, and neonatal tetanus will soon be eliminated, some communicable diseases once thought to be under control, such as dengue fever, viral hepatitis, tuberculosis, malaria, and pneumonia, have returned in force or have developed a stubborn resistance to drugs.

Cloud radio can broadcast programs on traditional medicines, yoga, sidhha and Ayurveda not onlt to residents of Bharat but the whole world.

Farming is not a sustainable livelihood option for many farmers in India. They can only get enough yield to live comfortably. There is no surplus that can take care of the future, good education, good health and a higher standard of living. The main reasons are poor quality of land, sub-optimal use of rainwater, insufficient irrigation and appalling ignorance. Farmers have to become entrepreneur and cut out the middle men. .

Cloud Radio may broadcast programme on livelihood generation by teaching skills such as to make pickles, candles, embroidery, etc. and also marketing technique.
