The empirical studies of Indian state economies have largely ignored the inter-dependence of agriculture and industry sectors. The authors explore how this inter-relationship translates into the growth stimulus between the two sectors. The analysis looks at the growth experiences of the states with respect to convergence of their growth rates, spill-over effects of growth of one state on the others, and the impact of macroeconomic policies at the state level. The book also provides insights into factors that can lead to higher and more even growth performance by the Indian states so that the disparity becomes minimal.
This book will be a helpful reference for scholars and students of economics and policy studies and political economics.

The merit of this book is the use of various methods of econometrics to measure convergence of per capita income, inter-sectoral linkage between agriculture and manufacturing, efficiency of agricultural productivity, etc. Readers can easily learn which method is appropriate to analyze various phenomena. This book can be recommended for all scholars who have an interest in regional disparity across states in India.-- South Asia Economic Journal
