About The Book :

Launched in 1998, Economic Developments in India (EDI) was, until now, a unique monthly publication in hard-bound book format, and contained analytical articles by eminent economists / experts, along with important Reports / Documents prepared by government / non-govt. organisations in India and abroad. The enhanced version of EDI, while retaining all the existing features, now adds another dimension to the range and depth of economic information published in a single monthly issue. From volume-31 , every monthly hard-cover volume of EDI is also carrying a Compact Disc (CD). Thanks to the high storage capacity of the digital media, this has enable us to give a whole lot of additional important information. So far, in case of very large documents, the hard-copy carries the executive summary only. From volume- 31, the user-friendly CD stores the full-text of the documents and a host of other supplementary reference material.

Raj Kapila is the Director and Chief Editor of Academic Foundation, Delhi. He has written extensively and is also the author of the following publications: The Story of Industrialisation: Industries the World Over (1962), The Time Demands: A Politico-Economic Analysis of Present-day India (1966), India at Cross : After 25 years of Independence (1972). He co-edited with Dr. Uma Kapila, a six volume study entitled Understanding India’s Economic Reforms (AF, 1996). This was very well received and consequently led to the evolution of the concept of ‘‘Monthly Updates’’ on Indian Economy that eventually took the form of the present EDI series. Together, they have also edited Banking and Financial Sector Reforms in India (6 vols., 1998) and subsequently: Ongoing Developments in Banking and Financial Sector in India (4 vols., AF, 2000). Most recently, they have co-edited a book: India's Economy in the 21st Century (Academic Foundation, 2001) --- a collection of select articles by eminent economists.
