India: Economy, Politics and Government

Title:India: Economy, Politics and Government
Publication:Business Intelligence Report : India / World of Information
Enumeration:vol. 1, no. 1, pp. 1-62, 2001
Abstract:Even with a parliamentary majority, the ruling right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has had to tread a fine line with its 24 coalition partners in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), attempting to appease both moderates and religious fundamentalists. BJP leader, Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee, has promoted a broadly liberal economic agenda while claiming to uphold a commitment to secular and inclusive politics. However, in his attempts to appease hardliners within the Rashtriya Swayamseval Sangh (RSS), the BJP's founding organisation, and Siv Sena, the Hindu fundamentalists within the NDA, he has used political and financial patronage, has increased the power of the increasingly politicised Hindu priestly class and taken an increasingly belligerent line with Pakistan over the Kashmir issue. Like the Congress party which held sway over India through much of its post-independence history, the BJP-led government has also been mired in corruption. World of Information Business Intelligence Reports allow access to concise, clear coverage of current political and economic developments in over 100 countries. Alongside contributions from journalists and regional experts from around the world, they contain a wide variety of sectoral analysis and background information. Each Report contains an introductory overview commissioned from one of World of Information's network of contributors, an extensive list of key facts and features of the country, including macroeconomic indicators and details regarding national population, labour market and public services. The economy section focuses on monetary, fiscal and trade conditions before analysing sectoral, infrastructure and regulatory developments. Natural resources including agriculture and minerals, industry and service sectors are covered. A five-year table of key indicators invaluable for research into economic trends accompanies the report.
