Did liberal eonomic regime contribute to the growth performance of the manufacturing sector in India?


  • Albin, Thaarcis


This paper attempts to verify whether liberal economic measures introduced in India since 1991/92 has brought any statistically significant growth difference in the growth performance of the manufacturing sector in India. It used the time series data from 1973/74 to 2007/08. Periodised it based on both the exogenously and endogenously determined breaks for cross verification of the growth results and arrived at the conclusion that the liberal economic regime failed to contribute to the growth performance of the manufacturing sector in India
