Adjustment of Pricing: Evidence from Indian Manufacturing

This paper analyses the pricing behaviour in the Indian manufacturing sector, considering both domestic and external variables. Price adjustment models are developed based on industrial organisation literature and are examined with 28 manufacturing industries at the 3-digit level over the period from 1963 to 2001. Domestic structural factors are found to be important in determining the speed of price adjustment.
