Before the 1960s, India used to rely on imports and foreign aid but after 1966, India adopted policy reforms that enhance self-reliance in food security by promoting domestic production. This has led to India being the world'’s largest producer of many fresh fruits.  It is also the second largest producer of dry fruits, agriculture based textile raw materials, roots, and tuber crops.
