Labour and the Green Revolution- The Experience in Punjab

Mechanisation of agriculture elicits sharp reactions where employment is a major problem. Its cost- benefit for any region has therefore to be carefully considered.

Capitalist Farming in India

Ashok Rudra (Review of Agriculture, September 27, 1969) tells us that he is more interested in the 'Red Revolution' than in the 'Green Revolution', The colour of the revolution which I have seen in one area after another of India in the 1960s is steel-grey. I call it an industrial revolution.

India s Surplus Cattle-Some Empirical Results

India's 'Surplus' Cattle Some Empirical Results C H Hanumantha Rao K N Raj, who has questioned the widespread assumption about the existence of a large surplus of livestock in India, raises the question whether given the amount of food available for maintaining cattle, a higher output is to be had by giving this food to a smaller number and raising their productivity or by distributing it over a larger number. He suggests that a firm answer to this question cannot be offered without much deeper investigation into the relative production functions.

Agricultural Development in Maharashtra- Some Aspects

There is a marked relationship between agricultural incomes and availability of water in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. Ahmednagar being a dry area, the farmer has to depend on irrigation for assured water supply on which his ability to take to improved technology depends.

Challenge to Management in Steel Industry

V S Bhave Indian steel is among the cheapest in the world. Raising its price to international levels would enable the industry to grow rapidly, for which the other facilities required are available.

Limitations of Market Research

S Srinivasan Market research serves to reduce the arbitrary element in the marketing man's hunches. But to invest its findings with near-infallibility is to subscribe to the thesis that human behaviour under given circumstances can be predicted with a reasonable degree of accuracy provided the techniques applied are sophisticated enough.

Projections of Consumption-Rural Urban India 1970-71 and 1975-76

Rural/Urban India: 1970-71 and 1975-76 N S Iyengar L R Jain Among the basic objectives of Indian planners are a) achievement of a significant increase in the employment opportunities in the coming years, and b) promotion of a social order which affords equality of opportunity and which at the same time prevents excessive disparity in income and wealth.

Cost Effectiveness and All That

S K Bhattacharyya Performance Budgeting by A Premchand; Academic Books, Bombay; 1969; pp 150; Rs 18.50. ONE of the most heartening developments in recent years has been the introduction of the cost effectiveness concept in Government budgeting. It is true that some form of cost effectiveness was introduced in the US Government accounting system even prior to the induction of Robert McNamara by Kennedy from Detroit to Washington. It is, however, valid to hold that McNamara is perhaps the person who gave this new system a conceptual basis and provided a sense of direction and thrust which were in line with his earlier reputation as a whiz kid, who made the transition from a professor of Harvard Business School to President of Ford Motors to Secretary of Defence, with equal ease. In introducing performance budgeting, which is built around the concept of cost effectiveness, McNamara stepped on quite a few corns, particularly those of his Chiefs of Staff who were somewhat unaccustomed to being told by a mere civilian what was good for them. Added to these injuries were insults by way of questions which McNamara constantly raised at the Pentagon

Work Evaluation and Individual Growth

M D G Koreth Though many organisations have personnel departments, these limit themselves to choosing people without having a clear conception of the work dynamics involved. There is, in fact, no general theory, or mode of measurement, of work, responsibility, differential payment, and career progression, to guide personnel managers.
