India - Economic situation and development prospects : Report (English)

This report attempts to review key issues the Government is likely to face and policy options open to them in their efforts to improve the efficiency and growth of the economy. After a brief review of the economic performance during the Sixth Plan, Chapter 1, dscusses objectives and development strategy of the Seventh Plan. Chapter 2 focuses on key policy changes that have been introduced during the past year and evaluates recent macroeconomic performance. Chapter 3 addresses to the implications of current sectoral policies; past and planned investment; and their combined impact on growth and efficiency in six principal sectors of the economy -- agriculture, energy, manufacturing, transport, housing and urban development, and population. Chapter 4 examines the steps that would be required to achieve the domestic resource mobilization goals of the Seventh Plan and Chapter 5 attempts to shed light on the twin questions of: (i) how realistic are the balance of payments assumptions of the Plan; and (ii) what policy changes are needed to assure their realization?
