This paper attempts to estimate growth of output and productivity of the organized manufacturing industries in India during 1981-82 to 2010-2011, the pre- and post-reform period (1981-82 to 1990-91 and 1991-92 to 2010-11 respectively) as well as over the decades during the period. So far as the industrial growth is concerned, annual growth rates, average annual growth rates as well as trend growth rates of output are estimated for the organized manufacturing industries in India and in its fifteen major industrialized states. The study further estimates partial as well as total factor productivity growth (TFPG) of the organized manufacturing industries in India and in states in India.

Abstract


This paper attempts to estimate growth of output and productivity of the organized manufacturing industries in India during 1981-82 to 2010-2011, the pre- and post-reform period (1981-82 to 1990-91 and 1991-92 to 2010-11 respectively) as well as over the decades during the period. So far as the industrial growth is concerned, annual growth rates, average annual growth rates as well as trend growth rates of output are estimated for the organized manufacturing industries in India and in its fifteen major industrialized states. The study further estimates partial as well as total factor productivity growth (TFPG) of the organized manufacturing industries in India and in states in India.
