Structure of Madhya Pradesh Economy

Madhya Pradesh is a major state which has long been at the lower end of regional disparities and this paper attempts to analyse the functioning of its economy during the 1980s and 1990s to identify how the overall national strategy of development has manifested itself in this large Indian state.

The analysis examines the aggregate and sectoral growth patterns in MP and their impact on the extent of duality of the state`s economy.
