ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the economic development of India under the new found democracy. The population of India is rising by three and a half million each year. The solution for this is to make children economically unprofitable by prohibiting child labor, making education compulsory, and placing on parents the cost of school books. In contrast to India's rising population, industrial production, which increased 20 percent during the war, has fallen back close to 1939 levels. Productivity in basic industries is well below prewar levels. Agricultural output, which rose six percent above 1936-39 levels in 1943, is below the levels of those years. As a remedial measure the new government of India chose to compromise between socialism and private enterprise.
