Child Marriage Curb on Socio-Economic Development in India

According to UNICEF child marriage refers to the marriage of a girl or boy before the age of 18. It refers to both formal marriages and informal unions in which children under the age of 18 live with a partner as if married and carry out the responsibilities of a household and give rise to the legitimization of procreation that has in return several economic and social impacts on the development of the economy. Early child marriages are associated with a rise in family burden because of the phenomenon of more children due to a larger time gap of reproductive age that is associated with multiple social curbs particularly on the part of women as they are prone to suffer from health issues, emotional imbalance, more responsibilities etc.

Farmers Protest 2024: Ensuring the Guarantee of Minimum Support Price (MSP)

Minimum Support Price (MSP) was first mooted in 1966-67, with the onset of the green revolution, to substantiate the Punjab farmers to use the dwarf ‘miracle’ wheat varieties that were imported from the International Centre for Maize and Wheat Research in Mexico (American-controlled) and then were cross-bred in India, primarily at the Indian Agricultural Research Institute in New Delhi. Soon MSP acted as a safety net for farmers that upside down the multitude of Indian agriculture from deficit to surplus. Initially, MSP for wheat was fixed at Rs 54 per quintal with the motive to incentivize farmers to grow wheat and paddy as they were the least lucrative and labor-intensive crops.
