    Madhya Pradesh

    State Profile:

    Madhya Pradesh is located in the heart of India. It is well connected by air, rail androad. All important roads and rail lines from North to South and from East to West pass

    through the State. This includes national highways and some of the busiest railway lines.

    Major container facility is available in the State at Indore. The most easily accessible seaportsare Kandla and Mumbai on the western coast and Vishakhapatnam on the eastern

    coast. Administratively, the State is divided into 10 divisions covering 50 districts spreadover 318 tehsils, 313 blocks and 55393 villages. There are 14 Municipal Corporations and 86

    Municipalities and 236 Nagar Panchayats. It is one amongst the first Indian States toimplement the three tier Panchayat Raj System in the country and has 50 Zila Panchayats,

    313 Janpad Panchayats and 23040 village panchayats having their own electedrepresentatives with 33% reservation for women.

    The State has a geographical area of 308.14 lakh ha. It is second largest Indian State in sizecovering more than 9% of the total Geographical area of the country. Over 94.69 lakh ha area

    in the State is under forest constituting about 30.73% of its Geographical area. Agro-

    climatically, the State falls in Zone-VII (Eastern Plateau and Hills Zone), Zone-VIII (CentralPlateau and Hills Zone) and Zone-IX (Western Plateau and Hills Zone) and is sub-divided into11 sub agro-climatic zones. These regions are endowed with the best soils. The major typesof soil in the regions are alluvial in the north, medium and deep black soils in the west and

    central regions, mixed red and black soils in the east and north eastern regions and shallowand medium black soils in the southern region of the State.The average rainfall in the State is

    1089.3 mm with over 94% precipitation during July-October, the peak being in September.Heavy precipitation in a short span of three months results in heavy surface run-off, thus,

    depriving sufficient water supply for irrigation and domestic purposes for the remainingmonths. Most of the surface water in the State provides protective irrigation during kharif

    season and subsequently, little irrigation is available during rabi and summer seasons. Thisexplains low cropping intensity in the State.

    Madhya Pradesh is amongst the less populated States of the country with a population

    density of 196 per sq. km as compared to 324 per sq. km for the country as a whole. The totalpopulation of the State as per Census 2001 is 603.48 lakh. Out of the total population, 443.81

    lakh reside in rural area (74%) and 159.67 lakh reside in urban area (26%). The totalpopulation comprises of 314.49 lakh male (52%) and 289.04 lakh of female (48%). Thus, the

    sex ratio (females per thousand males) works out to 919 which is lower than all Indiaaverage of 933. The rate of growth of population in the State during last decade (1991-2001)

    was 24.3% as compared to the national average of 21.5%.

    Madhya Pradesh has a sizeable scheduled tribe population. According to census 2001, the

    total population of MP is 603.48 lakh of which the tribal population constitutes about 122.33lakh which is 20.3% of the total population. There are 30 districts in the state which have a

    share of ST population higher than the national average. It has wide variety of tribalcommunities. There are 46 recognized Scheduled Tribes and three of them viz. Bharia,

    Saheria, and Baigas have been identified as "Special Primitive Tribal Groups" in the State. Themain tribal groups in Madhya Pradesh are Gond, Bhil, Baiga, Korku, Bhadia, Halba, Kaul,

    Mariya, and Sahariya. Dhar, Jhabua and Mandla districts have more than 50 percent tribalpopulation. In Khargone, Chhindwara, Seoni, Sidhi and Shahdol districts 30 to 50 percent

    population is of tribes. Maximum population is that of Gond tribes. As per the revised normsof GOI, for below poverty line (BPL) survey, the percentage of BPL population in MP was

    37.06% in rural areas and 38.44% in urban areas (2000-01). In rural areas out of 83.51 lakhfamilies, 30.94 lakh families were identified as BPL families. Poverty alleviation is most

    important agenda of the State Govt. The draft paper to the eleventh Plan proposes to bridgethe gap between the poverty ratio of the State and national average. Of the total 258 lakh

    workers as per 2001 Census, 74% are main workers (those who work gainfully for more than

    183 days in a year) and 26% are marginal workers. Work participation in the State is 42.7%,

    of which that for women is 37.2% which is much higher than all India average of 31.6%. ofthe total workforce, 71.5% is dependent on agriculture {cultivators (42.8%) and agricultural

    labourers (28.7%) }

    During the year 2007-08, the Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) has increased by 5.25%over last year (base prise - 1999-2000). Primary sector which covers agriculture, animalhusbandry, forest produce, fisheries, mining, etc. contributed 22.45% in the Gross State

    Domestic Product (GSDP) during 2007-08. Agriculture and allied activities continued to be

    the mainstay of the States economy with about 74% of the total population dependent on itfor their livelihood, although share of primary sector in the total GSDP has declined over the

    years from 29.75% in 1990-00 to 22.45% in 2007-08. The State is lagging behind ininfrastructure development. The infrastructure index for the State was 75 benchmarked

    against 100 for all India. On Human Development Index (combined Rural and Urban for theyear 2001) Madhya Pradesh ranked 12th among all Indian States. The State was lagging

    behind the all India average in respect of many basic and social infrastructure indicators suchas road density per 100 sq. km., irrigated area to net cropped area, number of telephone lines

    per hundred population, child mortality rates, no of primary health centres/ hospitals, etc.The national average for all types of road network is 81.22 km/100 sq. km., whereas in M.P.

    it is only 53.68 km/100 sq. kms. The per capita income during 2007-08 (QE) at currentprices in Madhya Pradesh was Rs. 18051 as against all India average of Rs 33228. Thus, MPcan be classified as a low income State in the company with Bihar, Orissa, Uttar Pradesh and

    Rajasthan. MP has extensive mineral and forest resources, rich and fertile soil and

    reasonably abundant water resources. But it is an industrially backward State. Bhopal,Gwalior, Indore, Katni and Jabalpur districts lead in industrialisation in the State. There areover 26 industrial development centres and more then 575 heavy and medium industries in

    the state. There are 4.54 lakh small scale industrial units in the state. MP ranks first incement production in India.

    Average size of the land holding in the State is 2.22 ha. (all India 1.57ha.) Small/Marginalfarmers hold 65% (all India 75%) of total land holdings but operate only 26% of area.Disparities in land holdings is further brought about by the fact that medium and large

    farmers own 35% of holdings and operate 74% of area.

    The gross irrigated area of the State has increased from 65.43 lakh ha in 2006-07 to 65.67lakh ha in 2007-08 witnessing 0.37% growth. The net irrigated area also witnessed 0.83%

    growth as it increased from 63.65 lakh ha in 2006-07 to 64.18 lakh ha in 2007-08. Netirrigated area constituted 43.39% of the net sown area (147.90 lakh ha) during 2007-08.About 66% of the irrigation in the State is through groundwater resources. As far as areaalready brought under cultivation is concerned, bulk of area is still rainfed and irrigation

    potential in the State is still underutilised.

    The power position in the State is not better than in most of the other States of the country.The power capacity available as on 31.03.09 was 9658.45 megawatt as compared to 9458.08megawatt as on 31.03.08. The share of thermal power with 2857.50 megawatt is maximum in

    total power capacity of the state followed by capacity of Narmada Power Project with2356.50 megawatt. During the year 2007-08, 36071 million units of electricity was producedand 31.68% electricity was used for Agricultural purposes. As per new norms, the extent of

    rural electrification is around 64% in the State.

    Nine major perennial rivers of the State namely Mahi, Narmada, Tapti, Chambal, Betwa, Sone,

    Wainganga, Ken, Pench originate in MP and flow to the five bordering States. The estimatedannual surface and groundwater run-off is about 116 lakh ham. Out of this, the water

    available for use is around 81.5 ham in MP. The State has so far developed irrigation potentialof 25.74 lakh ha, which is 17.40% of net sown area.

    MP is one of the eight mineral rich states of country. The state used to provide a large

  • 7/31/2019 About Madhya Pradesh

    3/14

    spectrum of mineral resources right from the minerals of key sectors (Lime stone, dolomite,bauxite) and energy sector (Coal) to diamonds and gem stones. Coal is the largest availablemineral resource in the State. Phosphorite deposits are available in Chhatarpur, Sagar and

    Jhabua districts in MP. Besides diamond bearing areas are Panna belt in the State.

    Agriculture in the state is still traditional, it is mostly rainfed along with the impeding factors

    of soil erosion due to rolling topography, practice of keeping land fallow during kharif andtaking only one crop in rabi, existence of large area of cultivable waste land, high portion of

    low value crop with low productivity etc. Agriculture faces uncertainties caused byfluctuations in rainfall, flood, droughts and other natural calamities. Such uncertainties are

    particularly severe in the rainfed areas. Rainfed area constitutes about 70% of the totalcultivated area of the State.

    Banking Network:

    The State has wide network of banks. There are 39 Commercial Banks (CBs) in public andprivate sectors, 08 Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) ,1 State Cooperative Bank (MPSCB), 38District Central Cooperative Banks (DCCBs), 1 State Cooperative Agriculture and Rural

    their 373 branches. Of the total 5158 bank branches in the State, 2429 branches (47%) arerural branches. The CBs and RRBs account for 55% and 21% respectively of the total branchnetwork in the State. The aggregate deposits of all banks in the State stood at Rs. 108366.17

    crore as on 31 March 2009 as compared to Rs. 89604.37 crore as on 31 March 2008,

    recording a growth of 21%. The share of Commercial banks, RRBs and Cooperatives in totaldeposit was Rs. 91855.39 crore (85%), Rs. 8087.17 crore (7.5%) and Rs. 8423.61 crore

    (7.8%) respectively. The growth rate of deposits of the CBs (22%) has been better than thatof the RRBs (21%) and the Cooperatives (9%). The average per branch deposit of CBs as on

    31 March 2009 was Rs. 32.15 crore as compared to Rs. 6.86 crore for DCCBs and Rs. 7.53crore for RRBs. The area wise composition of deposits indicates that 12.6% of the total

    deposits was contributed by rural areas, where as 27% by semi-urban areas and 60.4% byurban areas.The total loans outstanding as on 31 March 2009 for all agencies together was

    Rs. 67974.85 crore as against Rs. 60057.93 crore as on 31 March 2008 registering an

    increase of 13.2% during the year.

    The agriculture credit provided by Co-operative banks, Commercial Banks (CBs) and RRBsincreased from Rs. 10612.38 crore during 2007-08 to Rs. 12074.39 crore during 2008-09indicating a growth of 13.77%. The CBs recorded maximum growth of 33.89% during the

    year followed by RRBs at 2.39%. However, the Cooperative Banks both ST and LT had shown

    negative growth of (-)22.83% and (-) 1.30% respectively. The share of CBs in totalagriculture loans issued during 2008-09 was maximum at 63.58% followed by the

    Cooperative Banks who had a share of 21.46% and RRBs with 14.31%. The agriculture loandisbursement in the State has increased during the last couple of years.

    The combined CD ratio of all agencies (CBs, RRBs and DCCBs) as on 31 March 2009 remained

    at 62%. The deposits and advances of SCARDBs/ DCARDBs have been excluded while arrivingat the combined CD ratio.However, CD Ratio of 8 districts viz. Dindori, Shahdol, Annupur,

    Umaria, Rewa, Sidhi, Jhabua and Mandla was found below 40%. The recovery of DCCBs had

    improved during 2008-09. The recovery of DCCBs was 65.22 % as on 30 June 2009. Duringthe corresponding period last year, recovery of DCCBs was 48.53%. The income recognition,asset classification and provisioning norms have been made applicable to all banks to make

    their financial position more transparent. These changes have had their impact on thefinancial position and working results of these banks calling for more efficient management

    of their assets. Therefore, it would be advisable that while formulating recovery strategy,recovery of chronic dues of the banks should be given top priority. The mechanism for regular

    monitoring and supervision of the loan accounts should also be strengthened at the banklevel. Banks would have to pursue measures for recovery of the chronic overdues with active

    support from State Government.
