Abstract

This paper, using the governance framework, investigates the state of the agricultural value chain in India of select agricultural export products. While doing so, we are mapping the existing institutions/regulatory frameworks and their coordination across departments. The analysis, based on primary data, allows us to argue that there appear to be numerous institutions in place to protect the interests of farmers, domestic traders, and those interested in entering the international market. However, the real challenge lies in the coordination of various agencies and also information asymmetry, which results in higher transaction costs of doing trade.
