Items in India, 1985-86 to 2000-01 R Kannan T K Chakrabarty This study makes projections of consumer demand for selected foodstuffs in India for the period 1985-86 to 2000-01. The projection exercise is carried out at base year prices so as to avoid the difficulties in making allowance for price rise during the period of projection. The basic assumptions made in this study are related primarily to changes in population and consumption expenditureGov- emment policies regarding agricultural development ere assumed to remain unchanged. Besides, inter- regional homogeneity of consumer behaviour is also assumed.
