More reports on Indian economy

I had posted about reports on Indian economy earlier as well ( here (from RBI) and here (From EAC) 

Eleventh Plan document is not yet out, but we have a number of reports from the Planning Commission which would form the base for the 11th plan. As the website says:

“In the context of the formulation of Eleventh Five Year Plan (2007-2012), the following sectorwise WORKING GROUPS/STEERING COMMITTEES/TASK FORCE have been set up by Planning Commission, to make recommendations on various policy matters.”

Most of the reports which have been completed can be seen here.

I was just reading the report on Savings which provides the base of the entire plan. The report is pretty neatly done and explains in detail how much savings need to be generated and the sources to finance the growth. It also includes scenario analysis and portrays different levels of growth and the different level of savings needed to finance the growth.

The report is a good read for someone who needs to understand how savings are computed in India and the trends so far. It has projections but does not discuss in detail. I am waiting for sub-committee reports on the same for some details.

The report also covers SME sector and the approach is still the same- give them more credit. I don’t know when would we have some policy paper discussng the role and development of equity markets for SME.

Incidentally, Planning Commission has an excellent report on role equity capital can play in developing SME sector and innovation in the economy. Somehow, it has few takers or atleast I am not aware of any useful discussion in the public domain on the subject.
