All the factors of production are well placed for India to grow at a fst pace” said former Governor of Reserve Bank of India Dr Bimal Jalan. He was speaking at the launch of his latest book ‘Resurgent India: Politics, Economics and Governance’ at New Delhi’s India International sector. The book is published by HarperCollins India and is a sequel to Dr Jalan’s earliear book Emerging India released in 2012.
Dr Jalan highlighted the need for political reforms in India “The political profile of the country has changed dramatically since 2014 with a single majority party in power. I hope that the new government elected this year with full majority will be in a position to launch political reforms this book identifies some important priorities that can be implemented by the government.”
The book is divided into four sections- the first section deals with national politics, the second with the economy, the third is related with money, banking and finance and the fourth conserns governance. Each section contains four interconnected chapters.
Dr Jalan described the book as an attempt to look into and analize what more needs to be done in the light of the significant advances made in respect of politics and governance in India which is one of the fastest growing countries in the world.
