In this lively, opinionated, and informative piece of writing, Dr. S.K. Ray applies his characteristic and accessible style to all vital sectors of the Indian economy to present a compact, well-researched, comprehensive, and up-to-date treatise on the subject. He has consistently marshalled facts and figures and brought them to bear on today’s problems of economic developments and their management. The book covers an extensive portfolio of absorbing topics, all in their varied aspects and manifestations. Written with clarity, this book is a unique attempt to analyze, in considerable depth, various facets of socioeconomic growth such as natural resources, population, agriculture, industry, transport and energy. Besides, the issues like economic planning, land and tenancy reforms, economic reforms, inflation, banking structure, international trade and finance, labour policy, industrial monetary system, science and technology, and the atrophies ailing the economy have also been probed. In a nutshell the book skilfully interprets the economy of today’s India to identify her role not only in the development of its own economy but also in relation to the rest of the world. It also identifies the issues, problems and programmes required for the formulation of a strategy for economic growth. The book, a refreshing and significant contribution to Indian economic thinking, will also serve as a valuable textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students in Commerce and Economics. In addition, it can be of immense help to students appearing in civil services and allied examinations. This brilliant exposition of the Indian economy will also be useful as an important source of reference for scholars, faculty members, administrators, and policymakers.

A History of Indian Economic Thought

The history of Indian economic thought provides rich insights into both economic issues and the workings of the Indian mind. A History of Indian Economic Thought provides the first overview of economic thought in the sub-continent. Arguing that it would be inappropriate to rely on formal economic analyses it draws on a wide range of sources; epics, religious and moral texts for the early period and public speeches, addresses, and newspaper articles for controversies from the nineteenth century onwards. What emerges is a rich mosaic reflecting India's different cultures and civilizations. Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam all address economic issues and British colonial rule had a deep impact, both in propagating Western economic ideas and in provoking Indian theories of colonialism and underdevelopment. The author concludes with chapters on Ghandian economics and on Indian economic thought since Independence.

India is using an intelligent economic process for its renewal and growth, however, in a recent study by Nomura, 2016, The Japanese Financial Services firm, it is reported that there is downside risk to India’s baseline forecast of 7.8 per cent GDP growth in 2016. Although the report suggests that there was a mid-cycle consolidation in mid-2014, the recovery seems to be losing momentum. This book offers a novel, but inclusive outlook to the entire post-Modi economic overhaul. Offers a comprehensive narrative of the current economic scene in India Explores how the measures for reform are intelligent, while also considering their weaknesses Shows how India has a strong potential to grow amidst diversity of economic reforms and changing governance Includes a compilation of insightful articles on Indian economic reform and future prospects

After centuries of subjugation, India was a typically backward economy at the time of Independence in 1947. It exhibited the following features: (a) traditional and stagnant agriculture, (b) poor technological and scientific capabilities, (c) limited and lop-sided industrialization, (d) underdeveloped means of transport and communications, (e) grossly inadequate health and educational facilities, and (f) virtually non-existent social security arrangements. In short, the country suffered from the twin problems of rampant poverty and widespread unemployment, both making for low general standard of living. During the formative years after Independence, the development pattern of India was characterised by strong centralised planning, government ownership of basic and key industries, excessive regulation and control of private enterprise, trade protectionism through tariff and non-tariff barriers and a cautious and selective approach towards foreign capital. It was quota, permit and license regime guided and controlled by a bureaucracy trained in colonial style. Indian economy grew at an average dismal rate of 3.5 percent per annum during the first 30 years (1950-80) of planned economic development. This so-called state-controlled inward-looking, and import substitution strategy of economic development began to be widely questioned with the beginning of 1980s. Policy makers started realising the drawbacks of this strategy which inhibited competitiveness and efficiency and produced a much lower rate of growth than expected. Consequently, economic reforms were set in motion - though on a modest scale - when controls on industries were reduced by the 1985 Industrial Policy. The economic reforms programme got a big boost when the Government announced a new industrial policy in the Indian Parliament on July 24, 1991. Since then, it is liberalisation, privatisation and globalisation all the way and the process is underway. In the new liberalised industrial and trade environment, the Government is progressively assuming the role of a promoter, facilitator and catalytic agent instead of a regulator and controller of economic activities. The liberalisation process which started in the early 1990s encompassed wide-ranging reform measures in the areas of industry, public finances, banking and insurance, foreign trade and exchange rate management. The purpose of these economic reforms was two-fold: (a) to restore macroeconomic stability on both domestic and external fronts, and (b) to place the economy on a higher growth path through enhanced levels of investment, and improvements in productivity, efficiency and competitiveness. After the reforms, the Indian economy has been growing faster than its historical growth rate. Tenth Five Year Plan (2002-07) recorded an annual growth rate of 7.2 percent and the Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-12) achieved a 7.9 percent growth rate per annum. It is now widely agreed that the Indian economy is capable of achieving high growth rates in response to the implementation of appropriate and timely economic reforms. India is now Asia's third largest economy and has the world's fourth largest foreign exchange reserves. India's gradual and cautious approach to economic reforms has proved well-founded and the country is placed on a firm footing for future forays into domestic and global economic activities. Presently, India is one of world's fastest growing economies. Lately, it has emerged as a global economic power, a leading outsourcing destination and a favourite of international investors. The new Government at the Centre, which took charge in May 2014, under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has a vision to make India a modern and vibrant economy. Policies and programmes to rejuvenate the economy have already been announced in this regard. These have included, inter alia, Start-up India Initiative, 2016, eBiz Project, Make in India Campaign, Stand-Up India Scheme, Ease of Doing Business, India Aspiration Fund (IAF), Atal Innovation Mission (AIM), India Inclusive Innovation Fund (IIIF), Digital India, Smart Cities Mission, Atal Pension Yojana (APY) and permission to set up payment banks. This book provides a comprehensive account and assessment of economic reforms introduced in various sectors of the Indian economy during the last 25 years (1991-2016).

Development pattern of India during the first three decades (1950-80) after attaining Independence in 1947 was characterised by strong centralised planning, government ownership of basic and key industries, excessive regulation and control of private enterprise, trade protectionism -- through tariff and non-tariff barriers -- and a cautious and selective approach towards foreign capital. It was a quota, permit and license regime all the way, guided and controlled by a bureaucracy trained in colonial style. This so-called inward-looking, import substitution strategy of economic development began to be widely questioned with the beginning of 1980s. Policy makers started realising the drawbacks of this strategy which inhibited competitiveness and efficiency and produced a much lower rate of growth than expected. After assuming power at the Centre, the Government of Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi introduced a series of measures -- through 1985 Industrial Policy -- to reduce control on industries, particularly large ones. These measures, described as New Economic Policy, coincided with the policy framework of the Seventh Five Year Plan (1985-90). The process of economic reforms initiated in 1985 got a big boost when the Government of Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao announced a new industrial policy in the Indian Parliament on July 24, 1991. The new policy introduced radical changes "to unshackle the Indian industrial economy from the cobwebs of unnecessary bureaucratic controls". The new policy was widely welcomed for ensuring competitive and market economy in place of the outmoded command and controlled economy. Many saw it as a reversal of the 1956 Industrial Policy Resolution. After the reforms, the Indian economy has been growing faster than its historical growth rate. Tenth Five Year Plan (2002-07) recorded annual growth rate of 7.2 percent and the underway Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-12) aims to achieve 9.0 percent growth rate per annum. On the flip side, India's high growth rate is all very well but its moral virtues -- in terms of equity and environment -- are falling by the wayside. In other words, the growth process must be made as inclusive and as environment-friendly as possible. Of late, Government has become complacent in introducing further reforms. Opening up retail sector to foreigners, implementation of infrastructure projects, flexible labour laws and implementation of National Level Goods and Services Tax (GST) are some of the key reform measures being awaited keenly. This book provides a comprehensive account and assessment of reform measures introduced in various sectors of the Indian economy during the last 20 years (1991-2011). The sectors covered include agriculture, rural development, industry, minerals, infrastructure, energy, fiscal policy, monetary policy, credit management, financial institutions, financial markets, financial instruments, labour laws, employment generation, health, education, empowerment of disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, environment, disaster management, climate change, foreign trade, foreign debt/aid and foreign investment.

Impact of liberalization on informality has been a subject of intense debate for many years and the major issue that has come up is whether liberalization helps to grow informal sector and informality in the economy or it is an obstruction for informal sector’s growth. Thus, in the light of the recent liberalization measure, this book sets to examine general presumptions of the development of informal sector in the context of the Indian economy. The book begins with a broad framework for analysis of output contribution and growth of the informal sector. Liberalization is measured by openness indices and inter-sectoral linkages. Impact of liberalization on growth contributions of informal sector is captured by openness indices (i.e. degree of openness to trade and principal component scores), technical efficiency (measured by Data Envelope Analysis and estimated by Tobit Censored Regression model) and components of productivity (computed by Malmquist total factor productivity index) of the informal enterprises by inter-sectoral linkages. The linkages are modeled theoretically in a neo-classical growth theory and empirically measured by sub-contracting arrangements between formal and informal enterprises. In addition, the book also provides implications on promotion of informal sector from the viewpoint of employment generation. The description and analyses of the book will help with policy implications and enlighten the readers on the development of informal sector.

The Indian Economy in Transition

Taking the period following the advent of liberalization, this book explains the transition of the Indian economy against the backdrop of development. If the objective is to explore the new economic map of India, then the distinct contributions in the book could be seen as twofold. The first is the analytical frame whereby the authors deploy a unique Marxist approach consisting of the initial concepts of class process and the developing countries to address India's economic transition. The second contribution is substantive whereby the authors describe India's economic transition as epochal, materializing out of the new emergent triad of neo-liberal globalization, global capitalism and inclusive development. This is how the book theorizes the structural transformation of the Indian economy in the twenty-first century. Through this framework, it interrogates and critiques the given debates, ideas and policies about the economic development of a developing nation.

He was the founder of the Delhi School of Economics and the Institute of Economic Growth in Delhi and the Institute of Social and Economic Change in Bangalore. Researchers and academics working in economics and development studies would find this compilation a valuable reference. It would also serve as supplementary reading material for MA economics students for the course on Indian economy.
