About the Book :

Poverty, inequality and unemployment have figured consistently and prominently in all the Five Year Plans. They aroused considerable interest in teaching, research and examinations even before the achievement of Independence. Colleges and university departments teach and discuss these themes and register candidates for research degrees who choose particular areas to work on. At every level of examination we have question set on these topics. The present book Poverty, Inequality and Unemployment in India seeks to optimize the merits of the existing works and to steer clear of their shortcomings. Balance or measures is its hall mark. Theory goes hand in hand with practice. Applications do not remain mere reproductions as attempts have been made to reach the soul of the data and to deduce meaningful conclusions from them. Words and statistics are used in a balanced and coherent manner. A college or university student, man of practical affairs, or even a general reader may just take this book in his hand and find himself engrossed in it, so irrestible and instantaneous is its appeal.
