Development of Transport and Communication: A Case Study

Ganeswar Nayak (Author)
Synopsis Development of Transport and Communication unfolds how a weak economy perpetuated the weak transport system and weak transport system hindered the economic progress of a state. The province of Orissa since its inception remained an administrative appendage of Bengal. The prolonged neglect of transport system reached its climax. The famine of 1866 came as a nightmare for the province. The feeble transport system became a potent factor for the aggravation of the famine. Te Famine Commission made recommendations which laid the foundation stone not only to change the transport picture entirely but also to develop the economy. The Post-Famine period witnessed a momentous change in the province. The blue-print for the development of the roads, railways, ports, Inland Navigation and Post and Telegraph was prepared. Its sophisticated analysis highlights the march of transport system which coincided with speedy rise and growth of economy. By 1936, the chariot of transport embraced the nook and corner of Orissa which provided formidable ground for the unification of Orissa in 1936. This book is a meticulous scholarly effort and purely based on primary sources. This will undoubtedly deepen and broaden our understanding on transport in British period. It is hoped that everyone interested in transport history of India in general and Orissa in particular will find this work quite informative and illuminating. Contents: Introduction; Development of Roads; Development of Railways; Development of Ports; Development of Inland Navigation; Development of Post and Telegraph; Conclusion; Appendices; Bibliography, and Index.
