Development depends on industrialisation and

industrialisation depends on industrial policy. The first
industrial policy of the Government of India was announced
in April 1948. Subsequently Industrial policy resolutions
1956, 1980, 1990 andd 1991 were announced. The book has
evaluated the efficacy of different Industrial Policy
resolutiosn in Industrialisation/development of the nation in
the background of unsatisfactory performance. The latest
Industrial policy resolution 1991 has been prepared under
the frame work of globalisation and liberalisation. But the
author has pointed out that rural industrialisation issues in
completely missing from it.
