Competition in Indian Manufacturing Industries

This paper devises an improved turnover index and applies it to examine the mobility of firms in the Indian manufacturing sector during the post-reform period. The new index is used to test the stability of size ranks and analyse the changes in the degree of mobility. The paper studies the change in size distributions of industries and their inter- and intra-class mobility, and tests for the relationship between the dynamic index of competition and the direction of mobility of firms among manufacturing industries.

Estimates for Private Corporate Sector-A Note

A Note N Shanta Currently, estimates for the private corporate sector have to be derived from balance sheets and available profit and loss data.

Trends in Private Corporate Savings

Trends in Private Corporate Savings N Shanta The private corporate sector is an important instrument of planning in India, particularly for industrialisation and has been accounting for nearly 50 per cent of the output and value added of total organised manufacturing. Why is it, then,, that such an important sector has been contributing so little to the savings of the economy?

Population Estimates for Corporate Sector-An Alternative Method

An Alternative Method N Shanta The current practice of making population estimates for the corporate sector based on paid-up capital coverage is questionable. The author suggests an alternative method which seeks to do away with some of the assumptions underlying the current method. Estimates made using the new method stand up better to comparison with other independent estimates than estimates prepared using the current method. Though it may not be the ideal solution, the new method thus seems to be based on firmer grounds than the current method.
