What was the main focus of the first Five Year Plan?
Continued efforts have been made to develop agriculture in the country since independence. One of the most important processes through which this was done was the Five-Year Plans carried out in the country. These plans are centralized and integrated national economic programmes. The first Five Year Plan (1951 -1956) strongly supported agricultural production, and its main focus was ‘land reforms’ through the abolition of the zamindari system, ceiling on land holdings and consolidation of fragmented land holdings.
