There are significant benefits from the increased supply and improvement in the quality of physical capital which increases labor productivity as well as investment in human capital.


The investment made in terms of mechanized technologies, supporting infrastructure and appropriating the knowledge relating to their management; and adopting new technologies and practices involving better innovation in agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, and relevant skill development will sustain and boost the value-added growth of this developing state of India.
