Growth and Productivity Performance in the Indian Agro and Non-Agro Based Manufacturing Industries in the Reform Periods
The paper analysis the productivity performance of both agro and non-agro based manufacturing industries in the Indian economy during the economic reform periods. The results show that productivities of labour, capital, and capital intensity have increased from pre-reform to post-reforms at the aggregate and disaggregate levels in both sectors. The results of production function show that the elasticity of output with respect to inputs of labour and capital have positive effect on the value of output at the aggregate and disaggregate levels of both formal and informal sectors. The production results indicate that the agro-based formal manufacturing industries have produced significantly less value of output during the pre-reform period when compared to the postreform period. The coefficient estimates for year dummies reflect the noticeable output differential at the aggregate and disaggregate levels in both the sectors in 2010/11and 2014/15
