The growth rate of the Indian economy has plummeted sharply from 9 % in 2010 to less than 5 per cent since 2012. It is essential to sustain a growth rate of 8 % or more over the next 20 years to eliminate poverty and provide Indians a decent standard of living. Thus, there is an urgent need for careful research on the challenges facing India in reviving and sustaining high rates of economic growth. We are organizing a workshop on the theme of
Policies for Sustaining High Growth in India.
 We invite papers on all topics related to this theme.
Full or partial airfare and accommodation and hospitality will be provided to all participants whose papers are selected.
 Please see the attached Call for Papers for further details

The growth rate of the Indian economy has plummeted sharply from 9 % in 2010 to less than 5 per cent since 2012. It is essential to sustain a growth rate of 8 % or more over the next 20 years to eliminate poverty and provide Indians a decent standard of living. Thus, there is an urgent need for careful research on the challenges facing India in reviving and sustaining high rates of economic growth. As many of you will know, in July 2013, we held a workshop on “Reviving Growth in India”. Selected papers from this workshop are being published as a book by the Cambridge University Press (forthcoming around September 2014). This second workshop will focus on  policies for sustaining high growth in India. We invite papers on all topics related to this theme. Some topics of interest are listed below (Topics of greater interest are: Lessons for India from other high growth emerging economies, controlling inflation, manufacturing sector expansion, education sector reforms and energy security): 1.
