Farmer suicides in India

Suicidal behavior is a big problem in the world. Farmer suicides remain a huge problem in India today. As a result, the quality of life of the farmers has been adversely affected. The suicidal behavior of farmers has a bad effect on their families, society, and country. According to a survey by The United Nations on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), from 1997 to 2005, one farmer committed suicide every 32 minutes in India. Figures from the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) show that there has been a 42% increase in farmer suicides by 2015. 15 farmers were committing suicide every day in the country till 2014, which proves to be a humanitarian point of view. Many studies have studied farmer suicides at various levels and scales, based on the agricultural crisis in India, rising production costs, income shortages, agricultural credit, low productivity, market failure, and family imbalances. Suicide has been studied in which the main cause of farmer's indebtedness has been mentioned. At the national level, this scale is proving to be true. Proof of indebtedness in the causes of farmer suicide in India is 20.6%. Family problems 20.2%, illness 13.2%, and drug use 4.4%. Studies at the state level show that in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh, 57%, 46%, and 375 suicides were due to debt, respectively. Figures from the National Sample Survey Organization show that the condition of 525 farmhouses in India since 2013 is very bad.
