About The Book

Worldover, economic reforms have transformed the countries into strongholds of oligopolistic economic and political systems such that corporatisation and globalisation have become the catchwords of development. India too, has its share in shaping the structure of reforms in many fields with varying results. The recent liberalisation policy has its impact on technology, society and polity. To be globally competitive, corporatisation has been the major avenue through which many multinationals also spread their wings. The book deals with various aspects of economic reforms scenarios and the state-of-the-art built in stabilisers and future avenues for development. The issues covered include biotechnology, industrial technology, energy and environment, R & D institutions, organic farming, telecommunications, banking, agricultural research and construction. It is hoped this initiative in presenting a thematic prelude for rationalising reforms in the global setting would encourage many more analyses to come in various fields. The volume would be of interest to policy analysts, administrators, researchers and the general reader as well.
