The Industrial Sector in India-A Quantitative Analysis

A Quantitative Analysis Ashok Kumar Lahiri Srinivasa Madhur Dipankar Purkayastha Prannoy Roy This paper attempts an empirical investigation of the factors affecting output, prices, wages and raw material costs in the factory sector of Indian industry. It forms part of a larger system of equations which together constitute a macro-econometric model of the Indian economy The focus of the study is on the price-quantity adjustment mechanism in Indian industry with specific attention to the role of government policies and international trade in the determination of output and prices.
