Ongoing Changes in Policy Environment and Farm Sector

Policy initiatives on the farm sector have often been uncoordinated and ad hoc and have come under criticism for their deleterious effect on the farm economy. Even more importantly, the movement under liberalisation to arrive at appropriate input and out put prices in the farm sector may well be having wideranging impact on the development of the sector. In this context, the Planning Commission sponsored agro-climatic regional planning approach initiated in 1988 has yielded positive results.

Ailing Industrial System of India-A Diagnosis.pdf

A Diagnosis S P Kashyap Amita Shah During the four decades of independence the Indian industrial economy has failed to emerge as the leading sector. Sectoral shares in terms of income generation have altered but the relative losses of the primary sector are largely gained by the tertiary sector with only marginal gains for the secondary sector. The industrial econotrty has all the symptoms of a high cost economy, lacking in vitality and prone to sickness. It is argued that the conditions that could make the industrial system the engine of growth are virtually non-existent. Government policy has been excessively preoccupied with spatial and scalar considerations with scant attention te efficiency. This in turn has led to some unhealthy features like a distorted pattern of development, technological stagnation, low productivity and exploitative production relations.
