Standard System and Bottlenecks to Growth in the Indian Economy: A Study Based on Input-Output Tables (93-94)
GE, Growth, Math methods from University Library of Munich, Germany
The standard system is in balanced standard proportions, which permit growth without bottlenecks. This study estimates the standard system in the Indian Economy from the input-output tables prepared by the CSO, and use the standard proportions to identify sectors that are a bottleneck to 10% growth of the economic system. The study identifies 26 such sectors, of which 10 appear to be serious bottlenecks, with shortages of more than 1% of the total available resources in 1993-4. Crude oil with a shortage of 15.5%, coal with 13.6%, electricity with 3.8%, inorganic heavy chemicals with 3.3%, fertilisers with 2.6%, pesticides with 2.1% are some of the serious bottleneck sectors. Groundnuts, paper and animal services with about 2% shortfalls appear to be other serious cases of shortfalls at 10% growth rate.
