As per Indian government data, India has only 35 % land is irrigated that is Ganga River basin and Yamuna and some part of Krishna and Kaveri and Godavari Rivers area has irrigated.

And the commercial agriculture means sugar cotton etc that are expecting and they require irrigated land or 100-150 cm rainfall and a high temperature of avg 30°c and so it's not possible at all area. And extensive agriculture needs high technology like China Indian agriculture lack of modern technology and plantation agriculture means coconut plant, chikku plant, apple plant etc these plants required special geographic location and climate so subsistence agriculture means agriculture for life requirement of India. So Indian agriculture is subsistence.

Like most farmers in Africa, this Cameroonian man cultivates at the subsistence level.

Subsistence agriculture is a self-sufficiency farming system in which the farmers focus on growing enough food to feed themselves and their entire families. The output is mostly for local requirements with little or no surplus trade. The typical subsistence farm has a range of crops and animals needed by the family to feed and clothe themselves during the year. Planting decisions are made principally with an eye toward what the family will need during the coming year, and secondarily toward market prices. Tony Waters writes: "Subsistence peasants are people who grow what they eat, build their own houses, and live without regularly making purchases in the marketplace. ".
