Markets are one of the most ancient and universal institutions and as in other countries, the evolution and development of markets in India, have largely been dependent upon the availability of surplus goods for exchange. Up to the early years of the Nineteenth Century, the villages in India, continued to be largely self-contained units. As a result of development of communications and irrigation works, self-sufficing type of farming gave place to commercialised system in which the cultivation of crops such as cotton, jute, and oil seeds became prominent. The Indian markets thus developed from centres of small scale exchange of goods to the present day big wholesale markets and marketing of farm produce thereby became a fundamental problem of the primary producer.
