Synopsis State level economic reforms constitute part and parcel of the new economic policy, i.e. liberalization, privatization and globalisation. The economic reforms were introduced in India since July 1991. In course of time, state governments have also initiated economic reforms. The important objectives of state level reforms comprise fiscal consolidation consistent with macro-economic stability, development with a human face, reduction of fiscal deficits, and disinvestment of loss-making public enterprises. To achieve these objectives implementation of fiscal reforms is a must. In the light of these objectives, many states have initiated fiscal reforms resulting in changes in the expenditure loss-making public enterprises. This book, which is being published in 2 Volumes covers some of these issues, which will be useful to the scholars, policy-makers, economists, and the general public. This book titled State Level Fiscal Reforms in the Indian Economy is the result of the selected papers presented and discussed by the scholars at the 85th Annual Conference of the Indian Economic Association held at Thiruvanantpuram in December 2002 under the auspices of the Kerala University.
