The year 2017 marks the 70th year of India’s independence. The country’s transformation from a colonially subjugated economy to the fastest growing major economy of the world is impressive and laudable. But the coming decade is going to be crucial for the nation. Looking ahead, what does the economic roadmap for India look like? Critical questions need to be asked and addressed.
This edited volume in honour of Raj Kapila, with contributions from a large number of eminent economists and policymakers, addresses wide array of issues confronting India’s economy. A common thread in all the papers is that we need to ensure that our development process is just, humane, inclusive, sustainable, poverty reducing and environment-friendly.
