About the Seminar

Indian economy has been at the crossroads since the beginning of its development process in the 1950s. There have always been two ways of looking at it as it suits the researcher or the policymakers or the public discourse of any nature. India has been making economic progress relentlessly and undoubtedly.

What has been a matter of discontent and a debate over the development strategy is it that it has not been equitous nor it has been inclusive despite Indian economy gaining momentum in terms of growth and development for last several decades. In fact, there has been a growing divide between the groups of the people who benefitted too much and who remained largely untouched by the flow of development over a period of time.

There are several parameters that suggested that there have been aggravating scenario like this over a period of time.
