Foreign Collaboration in Indian Industry

V N Balasubramanyam What has been the impact of imported technology and investment on Indian industrial productivity, exports and growth? As the Reserve Bank of India study on the subject puts it, "the major problem in this field is, for instance, whether, on balance, foreign collaboration arrangements have resulted in, or can be relied on to result in, a net gain to the country? Have those firms and industries which have relied more on technology fared better relative to the others in terms of productivity and growth?" Central to the same theme are questions such as what exactly is the nature of knowledge imported under the technical collaboration agreements? Is the knowledge imported stated to Indian conditions and prevailing factor proportions? Has the implementation of foreign techniques resulted in a higher capital-labour ratio? Is the imported knowledge restructured to suit Indian factor and product market conditions? What has been the cost of such restructuring? How best to assess the quality of knowledge imported? Is the market for knowledge a perfect one? If not, what are the costs and benefits of operating in an imperfect market for knowledge?

Corporate Policies on Bonus Share Issues in India

L C Gupta Bonus issues in India are in the nature of 'stock-splits' rather than 'stock-dividends'. Increases in the total quantum of dividend distribution do not follow bonus issues quite as universally or automatically as is generally assumed. In fact, where dividend distribution has been increased, the quantum of increase has been usually less than in proportion to the bonus issue.

For the top few jobs, which would be on a pure selection basis, the bank would have a choice from among the persons who would be really competent rather than from among those who have reached, on the basis of seniority, a certain scale.

Training Is Not All

FINISHING the last page of the book left me both gratiiird and dismayed. Gratified that an educator had undertaken to write 13 chapters on a wide range of subjects from management of co-operatives, small and large industry, to education, planning and the emerging social and economic order. Dismayed because the superior capabilities of the author do not show up to full advantage in the treatment of the subjects. The objective of the book, which is to examine the management gap in the developing economy in order to benefit managements, educational institutions, etc, remains unfulfilled.
