Description

This volume brings together a selection of essays by serving economists/advisers at the senior level in various central ministries, regulatory bodies, and policy think-tanks. Promoting evidence-based public policymaking, the volume addresses medium-term policy imperatives for the Indian economy. Rich in data and analysis, the essays cover a wide range of themes including macroeconomic policy for sustaining high growth, sectoral polices for meeting the stated national development goals, market reforms and sustainability, infrastructure development, and challenges of governance. While the focus is on domestic developments, contemporary global economic issues that have implications for the Indian economy are also addressed.
