Policy Making for Indian Planning: Essays on Contemporary Issues in Honour of Montek S. Ahluwalia

Sameer Kochhar (Editor)

A key figure in Indias economic reforms from the early 1980s onwards Montek Singh Ahluwalias fingerprints can be found in policies from economics to education reform and he has been a driving force in the liberalisation programme of the past 20 years or more. The Oxford educated economist spent 11 years with the World Bank in Washington before returning to India in 1979 to work as an economic adviser to the government. His commitment to poverty alleviation and inclusive growth can be found in his early writings and as Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission he has managed to translate this into the countrys Plan process. He is also the harbinger of partici-patory planning wherein for the first time Planning Commission started inviting suggestions and feedback for the 12th Five Year Plan. This festschrift comprises a range of essays covering different drivers of economic growth and development providing not only an insight into policymaking and its impact but also directions for India if it is to become a major player in the global economy. This book is a must-read for students of development economics and political economy and is highly recommended for graduate students academics and professionals interested in economic issues of developing countries.
