Economic, Political and Social Issues of India


India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a rich cultural heritage. It has achieved multi-faceted socio-economic progress since Independence in 1947. The country has witnessed rapid socio-economic and political transformation since the onset of liberalization and openness policies in the early 1990s. However, the development gains have also resulted in various economic, political and social problems and concerns.

This volume contains 10 papers which explain and examine at length the emerging external and internal challenges facing the fast-paced transformation of the country.
