India's total landmass is 32,87,263 square kilometers out of which total land area is 30,60,500 square kilometers. (Rest is water bodies). In 2005 the total arable land and land planted under permanent crops combined was 1,697,000 square kilometers (That is 51.62% of India's total land.), and total irrigated land was 548,000 square kilometers. The total of non-arable land and land not under permanent crops was 1,276,190 square kilometers.
