Performance of manufacturing industry in Indian states: who loose and why?


  • Sarker, Debnarayan
  • Das, Debraj


This paper is an attempt to present the disparities of state-level performance of manufacturing industry on some key variables and tries to examine as to why the poorer states loose in relation to the richer ones. The study suggests that Indian states which could contribute to higher economic and administrative reforms during reform period by various fiscal measures did gain the boon of industrial achievements. So, in order to gain industrial uplift, the fiscal reforms of a state must help raising the income level of the particular state reflecting thereby to develop her economy by receiving the fruits of industrial development
