The industrial development that took place in India prior to independence and sometime thereafter was originally unbalanced. Not only was it largely concentrated in a few developed states, but within them it was confined to a few cities. Our first Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru initiated major efforts towards making India self sufficient towards industrial products. Because he felt that without industrialization any country cannot become a developed country. The industrial reforms initiated by him at that time although were slow but they paved the path towards better tomorrow. Now India is said to be one of the industrialised countries in the world. Economic reforms have had a positive impact on the investment climate in the country. They have also evoked a strong positive response from foreign investors and portfolio managers. There has been an encouraging trend in domestic investment. The editor of this book has tried to explore the Indian economic reforms and its position in the global context. It is an academic exercise which is believed to benefit all section of the academician.
