• India has acquired an exalted status on the global tea map. The country is the second largest tea producer in the world. Interestingly, India is also the world's largest consumer of black tea during 2013-14. India is ranked fourth in terms of tea exports.
• The top export markets in volume terms for 2015-16 were Russian Federation, Iran and Pakistan. In terms of value, the top export markets were Russian Federation, Iran and UK.
• According to estimates, the tea industry is India's second largest employer. It employs over 3.5 million people across some 1,686 estates and 157,504 small holdings; most of them women.
• Area under tea cultivation (end-2013) & production in 2013-14 is given in the table below. Read the data carefully and answer the following questions. Each question is independent of other questions.

#### Note:

1. All Total = Total North India + Total south India,
2. Total North India = Assam + West Bengal + Other Northern States
3. Total South India = Tamil Nadu+ Kerala + Karnataka
4. Production Yield =

## Area under tea cultivation (end-2013) & production in 2013-14:

## Solutions

Assam Valley : Cachar = 4:1
Therefore, Area under tea cultivation in Assam valley=

So, Area under tea cultivation in Cachar District= 300-240= 60
Given, Production yield of Assam valley= 2.4
= 2.4 ⇒ Production = 2.4 ✕ 240 = 576
So, tea production of Cachar district = 630-576 = 54

Production Yield =

So, Correct order will be, Tamil Nadu ˃ West Bengal ˃ Assam ˃ Kerala

Total area under cultivation in North India = 122.22% 0f area under tea cultivation

Therefore, Production = Production yield × Area under cultivation
⇒ = 1.9 × 550 = 1045
So, Production of other crops = 1045-965=80

Exports of CTC teas= 90% ×60% of Production= 54% of Production
Exports of Orhothodox/green and instant teas =10% ×80% 0f Production= 8% of Production
Therefore, Total tea exports = (54% +8%) of Production

Total tea production by Tamil Nadu, Kerala, other Northern states and Karnataka
= 175+60+25+10 =270
Therefore, required percentage
