Abstract: type="main">

This article develops a multiple-regime, learning-by-doing model, in which technological progress and capital accumulation are complementary factors in long-run growth transitions. The model accurately predicts India's long-run growth transitions over the period 1953–2007, with the first phase (1980–2002) being ‘technology’ driven and the second phase (2003–2007) capital accumulation driven. Given the complementary nature between technological progress and capital accumulation, one of the main challenges facing Indian policy makers in the aftermath of the 2008 global financial crisis is to maintain high saving/fixed investment rates. The analysis also provides a critique of the ‘total factor productivity view’ of India's growth performance.
