    CHANGING THE MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE OF AGRICULTURE IN UTTAR PRADESH. in order to enhance productivity per unit of investment, and make agri products internationally compe ive in matters of quality and cost, the size of managerial unit of land has got to be increased.Only then the agriculture sector could be made profitable and economically viable. The govt policies should encourage a minimum size of such economically viable units for support, incentives and subsidies of different kinds .Such management units will absorb more high end technology already available in the country and elsewhere. Gradually the sector needs to be corporatorized, The contract farming where all sorts of machinery and agri inputs could be used by entrepreneurs should be encouraged .Clusters of such farms could be linked to upward market and food processing industries and the export bodies. Without affecting the ownership structure the quality of management will be transformed for the better.

    NGOs must be asked to register with an appropriate organization whether or not they request the government for grant-in-aid. That may not be NITI Aayog as the mission of this organization becomes too much. India may set up a NGO evaluation organization. Each NGO should be required to state its mission, key objectives and goals. They should submit an annual report showing how their goals were accomplished in relation to the funding they received from domestic and foreign sources. Each NGO should have a website on which the people and organizations who requested their services, beneficiaries of their programs, those impacted positively and negatively by their activities, and the general public could post testimonials, complaints, and comments. The NGO evaluation organization should report to the government and parliament how each NGO and categories of NGOs are performing and if any NGOs should be deregistered. NITI Aayog may use the NGO plan data to see if certain missions can be entrusted to NGOs as they also collect and spend funds or if the government has to supplement such activities only to a minor extent.
