Agriculture in India and Pakistan, 1900-95

This paper re-investigates the performance of agriculture in India and Pakistan, 1900-95 from historical and comparative perspectives. The decomposition results show that aggregate changes in crop mix were one of the most important sources of land productivity growth in India and Pakistan. Their contribution has become more important in recent decades in India whereas their contribution was the most important in Pakistan during the 1950s, i e, the period just prior to the green revolution.

The Indian civil aviation sector that showed impressive profits in the pre-liberalisation era has been adversely affected since the onset of the government's open-sky policy in the late 1980s. Attempts to modernise and streamline the airlines' functioning remain stymied due to technological obsolescence, successive changes in government in the mid-1990s; lack of a coherent policy on private participation as well as recalcitrance on the part of politically affiliated unions of pilots and controllers. However, as borne out by several expert recommendations, a reverse in the fortunes of India's beleaguered airlines can only occur with the dawn of professional management.
