Policy Insights for Vidarbha's Economy

This response to "Generating Agrarian Dynamism: Saurashtra's Lessons for Vidarbha" (Tushaar Shah, Yashree Mehta, Vivek Kher, and Alka Palrecha, EPW, 28 June 2014) agrees in part with the authors but contests their claim that stepping up public investment in agriculture is not the only way of accelerating agricultural growth.

Tushaar Shah, Yashree Mehta, Vivek Kher, and Alka Palrecha in “Generating Agrarian Dynamism Saurashtra’s Lessons for Vidarbha” (EPW, 28 June 2014) offer their readers a refreshing perspective on why the economy of Vidarbha continues to stagnate. They have drawn a parallel with Saurashtra, a region similar to Vidarbha in many ways but also with a difference: the economy of Saurashtra is growing.
