India - Economic policy and the fourth five-year plan (English)

This report is intended to provide a summary review of Indian economy and the Fourth five year plan as of 1967. This report is the product of a Mission which visited India in October-November 1966. Most members of the Mission spent four to five weeks in India, some were there for shorter periods. The Mission had two separate out closely related purposes. One was to examine the important changes made in Indian economic policy in 1966 and the manner in which they were being implemented. The other was to examine the proposed Fourth Five-Year Plan and the aid requirements associated with it. This volume constitutes the Main Report of the Mission. This Main Report has four parts. The first briefly reviews India's experience in the Third Plan period. The second part describes and analyzes the major changes in policy and program instituted by the Government of India in 1966 in response to the experience of the Third Plan period. The third part reviews the proposed Fourth Five-Year Plan. The fourth and final part of this volume sets forth our estimates of the approximate amounts of capital inflow which may be required and appropriate in the Fourth Plan period if India was to make significant from the Aid-India Consortium.
