Presents an in-depth analysis of the economic policies and reforms of India in the pre and post reform period.
Economic Reforms in India since 1991 provides a compact overview of India's economic reforms in financial, trade and agricultural sectors, and the impact of these policies on India's economy. The book is divided into three parts. Part A, dealing with financial sector reforms, provides an outlook of the financial system and its working with a detailed discussion of trends and progress of India's financial system. Part B discusses the trade policy reforms. It provides a bird's-eye view of the developments in India's external sector from 1950-2016. Part C deals with agricultural reforms with a status report on pre- and post-liberalization agriculture policies. Major reforms in the agricultural sector, including major schemes, their impact and progress, and future prospects have been discussed at length. This book would serve as a companion for students of economics, management, public policy as well as political economy, and cater to the needs of both undergraduate and postgraduate students.
