Abstract

This paper reviews India's growth performance since independence. One of the innovations in this paper is to take explicit account of rainfall variations that play a very important role in the Indian economy. This allows us to determine whether the Indian economy has become less dependent on the monsoons ('drought proof'). It also allows a statistically more accurate determination of the different phases of Indian economic growth. These phases are linked to different policy regimes and therefore allow us to evaluate the impact of a set of policies on economic growth.
