The present volume brings together author's papers on the three related themes, viz., Development Strategy, Regional Disparities in Development and Centre-State Financial Relations in India. Written on different occasions over a period of more than three decades while the author worked at the Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi and also in the Planning Commission, until 1992 and thereafter, as an honorary Professor, at the Centre for Economic and Social Studies (CESS), Hyderabad, they reflect the understanding and approach prior to the launching of economic reforms in the early 1990s as well as in the post-reform period. The 30 essays included in this book highlight author's approach and position taken on these three major interrelated issues which are of continuing interest and concern in the current academic and policy discussions. Needless to say, here's an extremely useful book for students of Indian economy and a valuable guide for policymakers, researchers and economic analysts.
