This book provides reading material to students and scholars as a source to review the past, analyse the present and think about the future aspects of Indian economy. It also provides all possible historical records of theories of economic development. This book is specialized in the areas of industrial and development economic studies. The book is designed to facilitate and guide students, research scholars and faculty for research and study purposes including undergraduate and postgraduate students of management, commerce and economic studies.
