Urbanisation in India-Review and Prospects

Urbanisation in India Review and Prospects V Nath Developing strategies for management of rapid urban growth constitutes a major challenge for development- planners and policy-makers. The strategies must satisfy two essential conditions. First, they must contribute to meeting the needs for gainful employment, housing, and essential services of the rapidly increasing urban population at acceptable economic and social cost Second, they must ensure that urban growth contributes to national and regional economic growth, particularly through multiple, growth-inducing urban-rural interactions.

Regional Development Policies

V Nath The author has, in two earlier articles in this journal reviewed policies relating to regional development in the Five-Year Plans and the experience with them, especially in relation to State levels of economic development and rates of economic growth. The conclusions that emerged from this review were (i) that although reduction of regional disparities in development was a major objective of policies, the disparities continued to be large and had in all probability increased during the period of the first three Plans; and (ii) that a regional dichotomy in agricultural modernisation and growth was perhaps emerging with the western and southern States of the country well on the way to steady modernisation and growth while the eastern and north-central States remained stagnant or progressed very slowly.

Agicultural Growth in the 1970s-An Analysis

An Analysis V Nath In order to achieve the Fourth Five-Year Plan target of growth of agricultural output by 5 per cent annually during the Plan period and the rest of the 1970s, the rate of increase in productivity of croplands will have to be higher than the rate envisaged in the Plan, This is because the Plan's projection of increase in the gross cropped area appears to be too high on analysis of both past trends in growth of the area and future possibilities of extension of cultivation and increase in multi-cropping.
