The volume has been designed primarily to meet the requirements of the restructured course on Indian economy for B.A. (Hons.) students of economics of the University of Delhi. Although the content of the book follows essentially the B.A. (Hons.) course content of Indian economy (paper no. 07), the coverage is sufficiently broad as well as rigorous to meet the requirements of undergraduate/graduate students in various universities across India while also serving the students of competitive examinations. The book is organised into four sections: Section 1, covers the major features of Indian Economy since Independence. Section 2, Growth, Development and Structural Change, discusses the growth and development experience with reference to changes in policy regimes and goals of development. Section 3, deals with issues in Indian economic policy with regard to population and human resource development; growth, unemployment and poverty; macroeconomic stabilisation: trade, fiscal and monetary policy; agriculture, industry, services and trade. Section 4, looks at India's development prospects. The book is essentially, a collection of select articles by eminent economists and experts. These highly recommended original readings are well supported by comprehensive `editorial notes' by Uma Kapila. In addition to being a textbook, this volume also serves as an ideal gateway for any interested reader to explore, in a most authentic manner, various aspects relating to India's economic development since 1947.
