The year 2017 marks the 70th year of India's independence. The country's transformation from a colonially subjugated economy to the fastest growing major economy of the world is impressive and laudable. But the coming decade is going to be crucial for the nation. Looking ahead, what does the economic roadmap for India look like? Critical questions need to be asked and addressed.

This edited volume in honour of Raj Kapila, with contributions from a large number of eminent economists and policymakers, addresses wide array of issues confronting India's economy. A common thread in all the papers is that we need to ensure that our development process is just, humane, inclusive, sustainable, poverty reducing and environment-friendly.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Raj Kapila-economist, publisher, entrepreneur-was a remarkable human being, who, along with his economist wife, Uma Kapila, was an integral part of India's publishing scene, making contributions to the nation's economic policy by bringing the best ideas together for students, scholars and policymakers. I am delighted to see this fine book in memory of Raj Kapila. Given his remarkable innings in promoting the world of ideas, there is no surprise that this book is literally a who's who of Indian economists and policymakers." - Kaushik Basu, Professor of Economics and C. Marks Professor, Cornell University. Former Chief Economist, The World Bank and Chief Economic Adviser, Government of India.

"This book examines the development experience of independent India over the past seventy years and reflects on the decade to come. It is a rich collection of more than thirty essays by distinguished academics and eminent policymakers that spans a wide range of issues. The essential message to emerge from the volume is that economic growth can be transformed into meaningful development only if it reduces poverty, creates employment and improves the wellbeing of people. It is a valuable contribution to the literature on the subject, which should be of interest to teachers, students, researchers and policy practitioners." - Deepak Nayyar, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi; Honorary Fellow, Balliol College, Oxford; and former Vice Chancellor, University of Delhi.
