Economic Development and Structural Changes: An Empirical Investigation
Inter-India Publications, 1985 - Agricultural productivity - 159 pages
Punjab presents a unique model of economic development based on agriculture. The industrial sector in the state is lagging and its structure is heavily baised towards small sector. The heavy industry is virtually non-existant as there are almost no minerals in the state. yet the state, during the plan period, had experienced almost the fastest growth amongst all states of the Indian Union. Punjab is the most prosperous Indian state, with highest per capita income and tops in most of the indices of performance. This book, thoroughly investigating the fundamental issue of inter-sectoral dependence, in the context of the growth of Punjab's economy, highlights that its growth experience not only betrays the irrelevance (to Punjab) of most writings about India but also underscroes the need for formulation of development strategies at the state level.
