ABSTRACT
The article focuses on economic development of India. The index of industrial production has risen by an average of 10 percent a year in the last decade, and this rate masks a much more powerful thrust in all the newer industries. The thrust of expansion is strong at every level. In the public sector investment has been more than doubled between the First and Second Plan for such basic services as power, communication and transport and for a number of new public ventures in mining, steel making and heavy industry. The government has made a sustained effort to break down rural barriers of conservatism and indigence. Its chief instrument of change is the Community Development movement which attempts to push and prod and tempt the farmer into every kind of beneficent village activity, from better crop-growing to better hygiene. Agricultural output as a whole has increased by about 40 percent in the last 10 years and commercial crops, such as cotton and jute, have nearly doubled. Land reform has removed the large rent-collecting intermediaries.
