"Five-Year Plans of India"


The article could do with some details of how the plans are evaluated, and how they have fared. Particularly I would be interested if "All villages to have sustained access to potable drinking water within the Plan period;" this target was reached. - Francis Tyers · 18:29, 22 July 2007 (UTC)


The article require serious cleanup in the descriptions of first six Five-Year plans. Alokagrawal8 (talk) 19:02, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

"The third Five-year Plan stressed agriculture and improvement in the production of wheat, but the brief Sino-Indian War of 1962 exposed weaknesses in the economy"[edit]

this lacks a citation, and uses a subjective term, "weakness" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:31, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Another copyright problem[edit]


Are there any thoughts about the use of the lower case "p" in plans? A title search for "five year plans" shows that the great majority of articles capitalize each word in the form Five-Year Plans of India. China is the exception with Five-year plans of the People's Republic of China which has the "y" in year also lower case. I think a case could be made for either style, but since "Five-Year Plans" is by far the most common, would there be any objection to changing the title of this article to "Five-Year Plans of India"?
