Industrial Sickness: Trends and Patterns

This paper attempts to trace the trends and pattern in industrial sickness during the pre- and post-reform periods, especially in the large and medium sector. The study shows that while the first period (the 1980s) was dominated by an ailing small-scale sector, the post-reform period (the 1990s) was one of sickness in the large and medium sector. The onset of recession in 1997 had an apparent immediate effect on non-SSI sickness, but its effects on the small sector were visible only after a two-year lag, indicating perhaps the greater resilience of SSIs.
