In an agriculture based economy like India, farmers face several risks in the agricultural process such as rise in prices and low yield. The present study is an attempt to overview agriculture commodity financialisation in India by taking into account, various results and findings of studies on agriculture commodity financialisation. This study has been classified into three sections i.e. growth and performance of the derivative commodity market, agriculture commodity financialisation and price movements in India and relationship between spot market prices and future prices. The paper brings out the growth in agricultural commodity financialisation in India and how the agricultural commodity financialisation influences the price movements and also shows a relationship between future prices and spot market prices.
