The purpose of this paper is, first, briefly to discuss the main elements of costs in agricultural finance operations of formal agencies. The sources of high administrative costs are then identified. And, finally, a strategy is proposed for reducing these high costs. These objectives are discussed mainly in conceptual terms. Wherever possible, the available costs data are also used for empirical validation of analytical arguments. However, in India, these data are not yet adequately documented. Nor are the experience of the group or area approach to agricultural financing adequately studied.
