1.1 Planning in India
Planning in India starts in 1930s.
Even before independence, the colonial government had established a planning board that lasted from 1944 to 1946.
Before independence private industrialists and economists published three development plans in 1944.
India’s leaders adopted the principle of formal economic planning soon after independence as an effective
way to intervene in the economy of faster growth and social justice. Four decades of planning show that India’s economy, a mix of public and private enterprise, is too large and diverse to be wholly predictable or responsive to. directions of the planning authorities.
