12. Uttarakhand Economy: Growth and Challenges

Author: Tiwari, P. N., Joshi, Neha,(Pages: 383-395)


A development vision for the state should include both human and economic aspects along with environmental conservation. Also crucial for social development is the development of women, youth, and children. Therefore, to change the situation of economic and social backwardness in the hill districts, it is important to adopt a well-articulated strategy that on the one hand pursues a clearly stated vision and on the other offers practical suggestions to move forward in the given context of Uttarakhand. The economic policy in India has shifted to issues of equitable growth. This implies that the economy should not only maintain the tempo of growth but also spread the benefits of growth to all sections of the population and geographical regions of the country. This change in approach is particularly important for the hilly regions of the country, as they constantly struggle with underdevelopment, even when the rest of the economy is doing well. This paper analyses the problems of a relatively new state in the hills, Uttarakhand, and particularly the reasons for stagnation in the hilly regions of the state. It also examines the policy priorities that can enable the state to achieve inclusive growth. This study proposes a strategy for a planned approach to rapid and inclusive growth of the hill districts. The development of agriculture and an agriculture-based system that is linked with the growth of industries and tourism can be the way towards inclusive development of the hill regions. This, along with a watershed approach, is proposed as an efficient way to improve land productivity and sustain it. New opportunities are available through the use of quality seeds suitable for hill agriculture and multi cropping systems combined with animal husbandry through cattle rearing, poultry, fishing, bee-keeping, etc. Organic farming and agri-based employment opportunities need to be encouraged. The processing of fruits and vegetables, vocational training for youths, and banking and insurance in the service sector can provide livelihood security and support. Development of all these areas along with infrastructure development and better education facilities can be a direction for sustainable development of the hill regions for better quality of life to the inhabitants and to help halt migration from villages.

13. Impact of Covid-19 in the Indian Context

Author: Rai, Saumya,(Pages: 409-417)


The comprehensive number of cases and deaths recorded by COVID-19 is 32,795,818till 26th September’20 globally and specifically in India the total cases are 59,08,748. Fear abounds regarding the Novel Coronavirus pandemic and the consequences. There are increasing numbers of confirmed deaths. These numbers are expected to gush when oblique costs due to lost productivity and comorbidities are taken into consideration. The economic implications are thus detrimental not only to public health systems but to trade and travel, food and agriculture industries, various market types and retail chains, among others.If no pertinent vaccine is used and if the epidemiological process is not completely known, it will be very difficult to stop the spread of this virus. The decline in manufacturing sector and how unemployment in India is rising are seen here. Our result suggests that lockdown will have a huge impact in Indian economy. The non-performing assets of banks will increase as unemployment increases, including retail loans. The paper also shows some of the remedial measures that must be taken care of so that there is a boost in the economy as soon as the lockdown gets over. But, there are no situations where the lockdown stops suddenly and it has to be done in stages by keeping a balance between Covid 19 hotspots and economic needs. . Life itself is less relevant without livelihoods. Just as the right antidote to sickness is a healthy body, the right antidote to Covid-19 in the medium term is a healthy economy.

14. Does Foreign Direct Investment in Bangladesh: Opportunity or Threat to Economic Growth?

Author: Tasneem, Sara,(Pages: 418-426)


Foreign direct investment plays a significant role to accelerate economic growth of Bangladesh. Foreign direct investment and economic growth are of vital importance for economic development. Economic growth unpretentiously determines the economic wellbeing of any country. Regardless of robust growth, Bangladesh has to struggle to gain foreign investment. Excessive dependence on FDI and preferential policy support for foreign investors may undermine the interest of domestic investors as well as economic growth in the long run. In this backdrop, the study aims to develop a model to show the adverse impact of FDI in the long run. Following the inductive reasoning approach with critical review of empirical literature and observation of macroeconomic phenomena, the study arrives at a model which explains and predicts how growth can be lower in the long run. It concludes with the recommendation of macroeconomic management, infrastructural development and moderate liberalization.
