Birth, Life and Death of Development Finance Institutions in India

This article is a shorter version of the contribution to a forthcoming book edited by Akbar Noman and Joseph Stiglitz, to be published by Columbia University Press, New York. It was written for the IPD–JICA Task Force on Industrial Policy. I would like to thank participants in the IPD–JICA Workshops at the Dead Sea in Jordan in June 2014, and at Columbia University in New York in February 2015, for perceptive questions and helpful comments. I would also like to thank Atul Sanganeria for valuable research assistance.
