The relatively faster growth of tertiary sector vis-a-vis other broad sectors of the economics, as they experience a higher growth rate, has become almost a universal phenomenon. This has given rise to contemporary issues related to this form of economic development. The topicality of this issue is the broad theme of this book.

Numerous studies have been devoted to the growth of the agricultural and manufacturing sectors of the developing countries, but the services sector has received far too inadequate attention of the researchers. An attempt has been made in this book to fill this gap.

A unique feature of the book is that it attempts to answer the following set of questions in a systematic manner.



Seema Joshi is Senior Sir Ratan Tata Fellow at Institute of Economic Growth, University of Delhi, Delhi, on deputation from the Kirori Mal College, University of Delhi, where she is Reader of Economics, Department of Commerce. Dr Joshi's areas of interest include issues related to tertiary sector, social sector and urban management. While handling various training and teaching assignments, she also designed and taught an Elective Stream “Economics of the Services Sector” for XXXII Advanced Professional Programme in Public Administration (2006-07) during her deputation to Indian Institute of Public Administration as Associate Professor of Urban Management (September 2005 to May 2007).
