Most states in India have experienced relatively high growth rates since the introduction of extensive economic liberalization measures. But there does not seem to be a recognizable correlation between the growth rates of states and their development record. ‘Growth’ and ‘development’ have been considered synonymous and used interchangeably, until recently. The concern that growth may not result in development has been expressed by Indian planners, policymakers, and experts on development issues. This volume not only recognizes this, but also analyses the main issue—the contribution of liberalization-induced growth to development. It helps us investigate how inclusive post-liberalization growth has been. The volume is covers three broad themes. The first section looks into the regional dimension of the growth–development debate. Combining economic theory with rigorous empirical investigations, regional disparities within and across the states of Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Bihar are identified. The second section delves into the impact of growth on vital aspects like child labour, nutrition, and education. Finally, the last section discusses the implications of growth on employment, trade, and productivity. The volume offers suggestions for policy at the state and sectoral levels for the promotion of inclusive growth in India.
