It is a reference book on the subject of economic policy of ancient India, based on Hindu Shastras. The extracts from the original sources have been cited in the book wherever needed to explain the subject. The citations make it an unique reference book on the subject of economics for all the time. The author has laboured hard to go through the various original texts like Vedas and the Puranas to make the book valuable one. Wherever needed he has given his own views on the subjects to facilitate the research scholars to draw their own conclusions. The book fills up gap in the field of knowledge pertaining to the economics. It is hoped that the book will be of a great help to the research scholars working on ancient Indian economics.
