text for new page

Put your text for the new page here. "Colonised people are not simply those whose labour has been appropriated but those whose soul dwells an inferiority complex created by the death and burial of its local cutural originality" How true is this statement?


Clarification : In the last para a line says "... organisations like GE, BA, etc. ...", what does BA stand for ?

Lesbination (What the hell?)

There is a random story in the middle of this section on the economy reading as such: "Once upon a time, there lived a man who had a terrible passion for baked beans. He loved them, but they always had an embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction on him. One day he met a girl and fell in love. When it became apparent that they would marry, he thought to himself, she'll never go through with the marriage with me carrying on like this, so he made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans.

Shortly after that they were married. A few months later, on his birthday and on the way home from work, his car broke down. Since they lived in the country, he called his wife and told her that he would be late because he had to walk home. On his way home, he passed a small cafe and the wonderful aroma of baked beans overwhelmed him. Since he still had several miles to walk he figured he could walk off any ill affects before he got home. It was, after all, his birthday. So he went in and ordered, and before leaving had 3 extra large helpings of baked beans.

All the way home he putt-putted. By the time he arrived home he felt reasonably safe. His wife met him at the door and seemed somewhat excited. She exclaimed, "Darling, I have the most wonderful surprise for you for dinner tonight!" She put a blindfold on him, and led him to his chair at the head of the table and made him promise not to peak. At this point he was beginning to feel another one"

I have erased this, but I am wondering what exactly this section is about.--RNJBOND 08:09, Dec 10, 2004 (UTC)

Rewrite

I plan to do a rewrite of this article, since it is too short for such a vast topic and a good rewrite should make it a feature article candidate. I have put my ideas on Talk:Economy_of_India/Template_for_Rewrite. Please feel free to add/edit & discuss the template and/or collaborate on the rewrite. pamri 16:56, 25 Jan 2005 (UTC)

moved to Economy of India/temp. pamri 07:59, Feb 6, 2005 (UTC)

Economy and energy

I think something about energy subsidies and their importance to agriculture would be relevant in this article. See the quote below. "International organisations like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund have often criticised India for giving free electricity to farmers." [1]

Featured Article

I was hoping this article could be done up on the lines of Economy of Africa and Economy of Ireland, both FAs. I hope someone volunteers to undertake this task. I'll help anyone who takes the lead. =Nichalp «Talk»= June 29, 2005 18:53 (UTC)

I had started work on Economy of India/temp a looooo..ong time ago, but could not complete it due to some other commitments. Anyways, I am relatively free now and hope to finish this off. My current plan is to take up each section in

Economy of India/temp and work on it, rather than work in a haphazard manner, so we can have 4 FA's instead of 1. I have started work on Economic history of India, which by itself contains atleast 3 FA's within itself and hopefully should try to finish it by the next week. It would be great, if someone starts work on Post-Independence & Pre-Liberalization history and later sections, while I try to finish the pre-colonial & colonial periods. We can probably have a COTW exclusively for the economy of india series every week so we can finish it off quickly. pamri June 30, 2005 03:14 (UTC)

I am currently undertaking a task to feature main articles listed off the India page such as History of India, Economy of India etc. The Geography of India reached featured status recently, Indian Railways this week and Flag of India soon to follow. I hope you can get the articles to FA status as early as possible. My knowledge in this department is poor, so I can help in only limited areas. Regards, =Nichalp «Talk»= June 30, 2005 07:08 (UTC)
In that case, we can do this first and then proceed to the other articles. I will create a rough draft in a day or two, while you can drum up support (Since this isn't a stub, it can't qualify for a INCOTW, right?). pamri June 30, 2005 16:27 (UTC)
You can nominate the Economy of India. Our ultimate goal to to get India-related FA. So even if it is a half-baked article, ill elevate it if it has a fair number of votes. But expect it to be the INCOTW only after a fortnight since the History of India will take some time doing. I'm sure Sundar, Kaal and a few others can join in. I can make you some graphs and charts, and add some text if you need. You take the lead, I'll support you. =Nichalp «Talk»= July 1, 2005 07:45 (UTC)
Thanks. That gives me some time to make the Economic_history_of_India more complete & complementary. I will put up some raw data that can be put up as maps & charts. pamri July 1, 2005 08:10 (UTC)

BTW please don't use the temp page of the main article. ie Economy of India/temp is frowned upon. You can make it under user:pamri/temp if you want exclusive use. I've got a helpful link: [2]. I'll keep posting links here when I find something useful. You may want to make use of it. =Nichalp «Talk»= July 1, 2005 09:06 (UTC)

Is Talk:Economic of India/temp too frowned upon? By the way, you guys have done an excellent work on Flag of India. -- Sundar \talk \contribs July 1, 2005 09:11 (UTC)
That's allowed. =Nichalp «Talk»= July 1, 2005 09:18 (UTC)
Anyways, moved to User:Pamri/Economy of India. If you want it to move somewhere else, please do that. Will carry out edits in the main article once I complete a reasonable draft, since the current article is decent enough. pamri July 1, 2005 09:24 (UTC)
I have deleted the temporary page as you requested. =Nichalp «Talk»= July 1, 2005 09:45 (UTC)
Yet another move to Talk:Economy of India/temp, since I have pinged some people to contribute. Feel free to edit. (hehe..copied title with typo from Sundar....and had to move again.:-D)pamri July 1, 2005 14:31 (UTC)

IMF bailout in 1991

... doesn't get a mention? ~ Riana 23:55, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

India was not "bailed out" by the IMF, it did have a "Currency Crisis" and subsequently implemented economic reforms by Dr. Singh. You can read about it on the IMF website here: http://www.imf.org/External/Pubs/FT/staffp/2002/03/pdf/cerra.pdf. 142.161.147.90 (talk) 23:13, 21 December 2008 (UTC)

NPOV issues and edits by Lalit Jagannath

The quality of this article has declined with edits by "Lalit Jagannath" et al, and it has introduced many NPOV issues. Normally, wikipedia articles start by discussing the size of the economy in terms of GDP, major inports and exports, etc. This is done with the United States [1], the economy of Brazil, [2] and the economy of the United Kingdom [3]. Many of the "history" points are not directly related to India's economy (malnutrition - there's an article on India and malnutrition in wikipedia) and HIV/AIDS (also already discussed in Wikipedia). I believe the selective use of these citations is used to set a negative tone about India. This article should be about economics, not subcontinental politics. I will remove the introduction and revert the article back to a previous version. 142.161.152.250 (talk) 23:50, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

I second the motion. Considerable bias on the part of User:Lalit Jagannath, who only seems to use sources that impart negative information, without any sense of balance or context. Major WP:SYN violation.Signswork (talk) 23:20, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Signswork

From Wikipedia:Editing policy:

Whatever you do, endeavour to preserve information. Instead of removing, try to:

  • rephrase
  • correct the inaccuracy while keeping the content
  • move text within an article or to another article (existing or new)
  • add more of what you think is important to make an article more balanced
  • request a citation by adding the {{fact}} tag

Also, any replacement for the citation must be verifiable - that is, whether readers are able to check that material added to Wikipedia has already been published by a reliable source, not whether we think it is true. Editors should provide a reliable source for quotations and for any material that is challenged or likely to be challenged, or the material may be removed.Lalit Jagannath (talk) 09:24, 5 January 2009 (UTC)

The issue isn't rephrasing, citations, etc. This article looks nothing like the other economy articles in Wikipedia because of your vandalism. The previous version had reliable citations from WB, etc. Instead, you're incorporating information about regional imbalances which should be up front, are misleading, and unbalanced. For example, even the most elementary discussion of regional imbalance would start with a discussion of Gini coefficients, which you have not done. I will continue to remove your edits. You have not discussed your reordering of the article in the discussion, as a result, your changes will be removed. 128.189.208.27 (talk) 01:29, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Hello everyone, I am working for the International Trade Centre (ITC). I would like to propose the addition of an external link that could lead directly to the specific country’s trade data held by ITC. I would like you to consider this link under the WP:ELYES #3 prescriptions. Moreover, the reliability and the pertinence of this link can be supported by the following facts 1) ITC is part of the United Nations 2) No registration is required 3) Trade data (imports/exports) are regularly updated 4) The link gives direct access to the trade database of the specific country 5) The addition of reliable trade data to the Economy section of the country could provide an appropriate contribution to the information therein contained.

A Discursive Dominance Theory

Any cut paste text has been inserted within QUOTE MARKS.

The text taken from MPRA has also been referenced.

You cannot paste text from MPRA even it is referenced to MPRA. And pasting such a big chunk of text from one academic paper is undue. Economy of India is a general economy article. Any single theory about certain aspects of the economy cannot be given such weightage here. So there are two different problems here - a) copyright violation b) giving undue weightage to a single paper. Please summarize this to a two-three lines and add it to the "Post-liberalisation period (since 1991)" section. Per wikipedia rules, if someone opposes / contests your addition to the article, discuss it in the talk page before. I will post this message there too.

If different pages of a single reference work are cited (and there are more than one such reference works), we adopt the current nomenclature. - The "Notes" section contains works that are cited once with full information and names+pagenumbers of those cited multiple times. (Not a neat arrangement, but a good compromise IMO). The alternative format is to have three sections - Notes, References and Bibliography--Sodabottle (talk) 14:14, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

Income and consumption section

This wiki article has content in income and consumption section that, though interesting and added by wiki contributors in good faith, are irrelevant to income or consumption because these terms have specific meaning in economics. See, for example, Income–consumption curve. I intend to remove these irrelevant paragraphs, in the coming days/weeks, and replace them with Indian economy's income and consumption profile, data and comparative summary from WP:RS.

Poverty stats

User Kkm010 has reverted updated numbers. Let us discuss this revert here.

The source (http://povertydata.worldbank.org/poverty/country/IND) offers two charts, and the detailed report repeats the data as well. The poverty stats, by international standards, are in a chart titled: PEOPLE LIVING ON LESS THAN $1.25 A DAY. The left Y axis indicates millions, the right Y axis percentage. For 2010, this is 32.7% per the cited source. Another chart, titled: PEOPLE LIVING BELOW NATIONAL POVERTY LINE, similarly indicates the poverty level to be 29.8% for 2010.

Thus the change feels inconsistent with the cited source, and seems unjustified per WP:RS. I am reverting it in good faith. If user Kkm010 wants to revert it back, please do so after explaining/a discussion here on this talk page. ApostleVonColorado (talk) 14:58, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

Indian GDP (Nominal) and GDP (PPP)

A copy of world bank database page with the info in question.

Here and here, the data from world bank says that India's GDP (nominal) in 2011 was $1.84798 trillion.

It might also be noted that the same databank also claimed GDP (PPP) was $4.53 trillion (see the Photo). I can't seem to figure out a way to get a permanent link; so far, every link from the said databank is visible only within a time-limit.

The article states them as $1.676 trillion and $4.457 trillion respectively. $171.98 billion difference is a tad much, I think.

How do we solve this contradiction? IMO, the current figure in the article is bit outdated and the world bank figure seems to be the latest there is, which last got updated in July 2012. Mrt3366 (Talk page?) (New section?) 18:28, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

Logic problem in major claim

"This model contributed to widespread inefficiencies and corruption, and the failings of this system were due largely to its poor implementation." / "But even this system could have delivered more had it been better implemented. It did not have to degenerate into a 'license-permit-quota raj'... "

Both quotations are given. I'm confused as to whether it's a quotation of a 1936 text in a 2006 research article. And I find the logic hard to work out. The model itself contributed to inefficiencies and corruptions, we're first told. Then we're told that it was only the implementation of the model that caused this. I guess if any model is poorly implemented, things go wrong. But I'm assuming the model itself is the point of the claim. Can it be clarified—both the logic and the referencing?

Also, P.V. Narasimha Rao was PM over six years in the 90s (but is mentioned after finance minister Manmohan Singh, who was also PM last year (for a month)). I'm really confused. The agency of both men needs to be clearly stated in terms of the years in which they held office, or better, pushed through the relevant reforms. Tony (talk) 11:09, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Statistics Box

Somebody needs to change these statistics -- they're not even close to being right. GDP (PPP) of $5.21 trillion? Excuse me? This contradicts the figure given in List of Countries by GDP (PPP), and India is _not_ third on that list. The CIA World Factbook gives a figure of $2.989 trillion (2007 estimate). Also the per capita figures, both nominal and PPP, seem wrong, and do not match what's given in the CIA Factbook (which is the reference given). Shall I go ahead and change these numbers? I'm a little shocked that such grossly wrong statistics would be in a featured article... Kier07 (talk) 20:04, 26 July 2008 (UTC)


Actually it indeed is third largest if you go by PPP nominal figures. See link: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/in.html. It's 4.784 trillion (2012)below China ($12.38) and US ($15.66 trillion) If you go by GDP figures then it is 2 trillion dollars (US): https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/in.html - See the economy section.

Factual errors with the british colonial economic era part

The current railway system is not a construct of british, a popular myth repeated again and again. The railway tracks were complete mess of broad gauge, metre gauge and others with substandard bogies and decades old technology. I don't see how it can be considered to be a contribution when it was just a shitty mess left to be corrected and sorted by the post independent government.

Unemployment inconsistency

The statistics section lists unemployment as 3.8%, the overview as 9.8%, and both point to the same source page. I'm unable to determine which is correct,sex but clearly they can't both be! --Ehsanit 15:24, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Economic disparities

The map given in the 'Economic disparities' section says that the average GDP per capita (PPP) in 2011 is 5138 US $. The state wise data shows that only few small states like Haryana, Delhi,Puduchery, Goa and Chandigarh (total constituting 2% of Indian population) are having per capita above the national average. The average per capita GDP of India is very much on higher side. The data given in the map needs correction. (refer the source link provided in the image file)

India is third largest producer of electricity (refer Electricity sector in India) and fourth biggest energy consumer in the year 2013 (refer Energy policy of India). The article says India is fourth largest electricity producer quoting 2011 data. The data needs to be updated.

The article says infrastructure is part of Service sector at one place and only infrastructure operation is part of service sector in another place. I think latter statement is correct. Mismatch to be rectified.49.207.240.4 (talk) 11:15, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

External link

Hello everyone, I am working for the International Trade Centre (ITC), a UN/WTO agency that aims to promote sustainable economic development through trade promotion. I would like to propose the addition of an external link (http://www.macmap.org/QuickSearch/FindTariff/FindTariff.aspx?subsite=open_access&country=SCC699%7CIndia&source=1%7CITC) that leads directly to our online database of customs tariffs applied by India. Visitors can easily look up market access information for India by selecting the product and partner of their interest. I would like you to consider this link under the WP:ELYES #3 prescriptions. Moreover, the reliability and the pertinence of this link can be supported by the following facts 1) ITC is part of the United Nations, and aims to share trade and market access data on by country and product as a global public good 2) No registration is required to access this information 3) Market access data (Tariffs and non-tariff measures) are regularly updated

Africa versus India data in the lead

I removed the Africa comparison data in the lead because not only is it inappropriate to wikipedia's lead writing guidelines, it was without cited source and based on another wiki page that doesn't match with sources. Nigeria's GDP, in nominal terms, is estimated to be about $316 billion in 2014 (see this and this). In mid 2014, there were proposals to revise Nigeria's GDP numbers to another basis, but to be consistent the same revision has been proposed for India, China and other nations. We should not compare two regions or nations on data that is not on the same basis. AmyNorth (talk) 17:06, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Agreed. While the numbers can (in principle) be corrected and sourced, the comparison to any particular arbitrarily chosen region in the lede is undue and smacks of soapboxing. Abecedare (talk) 17:16, 17 October 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for removing it AmyNorth.....it surely never deserved to be in the lead..... As Abecedare says, comparing with a randomly chosen region or country is just soapboxing..Thanks, ƬheStrikeΣagle 17:21, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

Poverty rate

@Sudhirdeshwal: I have removed the ICP report for World Bank's poverty rate estimate in 2010 based on 2005 PPP index, as well as estimates for 2010 based on proposed 2011 PPP index by World Bank. I have replaced these with World Bank's poverty rate estimate for 2011, based on 2005 PPP index, published in January 2015. Please don't edit war by replacing 2011 data with 2010 data, both published by The World Bank. Any concerns? BabeAnnBabe (talk) 19:46, 1 February 2015 (UTC)

Indian economy is the seventh largest economy, not the sixth largest one as mentioned in the page. "The economy of India is the sixth-largest economy in the world" should be replaced by "The economy of India is the seventh-largest economy in the world"

The edit was probably done after a Forbes report claiming India had overtaken U.K. in GDP but has since proved inaccurate.
