Datt & Sundharam Indian Economy

Authors present a comprehensive survey of the Indian Economy in terms of GDP growth, savings, investment and developments in various sectors like agriculture, industry and services. A contradiction observed in India is that while the reform process has resulted in boosting GDP growth, it has failed to yield acceleration in the process of poverty reduction and growth of employment.

A thorough revision of the book was necessitated by these rapid changes taking place in the Indian Economy. Readers will appreciate that economic scenarios, both at the global and national levels, have been changing continuously. It has been our endeavor to introduce new analysis by way of adding new section and revising existing chapters for a better understanding of the evolving problems and opportunities for the Indian Economy. A new chapter namely 'The Approach Paper to the Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-17)' has recently been added in the book.

Summary Of The Book
Designed for ardent history enthusiasts, India's Struggle For Independence is one of the most exhaustive and precise account of the struggle of Indian Independence ever written in the literary world. Written and edited by five expert authors, it presents a detailed outlook on one of the most important periods in Indian history.
The facts and details provided in this book have been gathered from oral and written sources, and various other primary sources have been used along with years of intense research. Written with a very concise approach, it is a one of a kind book that details the intricacies of the Indian Independence struggle.
The struggle for Indian Independence took a long time and was something that affected the whole country. Every state in the country boasted of some kind of revolt – minor or major during this period. Numerous revolutionaries throughout the country came together in their efforts to fight against the British rule and set their country free. Few of the chapters in the book are The Fight to Secure Press Freedom, Foundation of the Congress: The Myth, World War I and Indian Nationalism: The Ghadar, An Economic Critique of Colonialism, Peasant Movements and Uprisings after 1857, The Non-Cooperation Movement—1920-1922, The Gathering Storm-1927-1929, Civil Rebellions and Tribal Uprisings, and many more.
India's Struggle For Independence takes the reader on a journey across India as she was craving for her Independence. This book starts at the very first revolt of 1857 under the guidance of Mangal Pandey, from Rani Lakshmi Bai’s innate passion to free her country, Subhash Chandra Bose’s unmatched charisma and aggressive tactics, to Mahatma Gandhi’s famous civil disobedience and non-cooperation movement, to the final victory in 1947 when the British Raj finally came to an end.
The book reflects a coherent narrative as it incorporates the existing historiographical advances and yet provides an utterly new and clear view of this period in Indian history.

      (1)       Heard  Mr. Shyam Divan learned senior counsel for the Andhra
      Pradesh Public Service Commission and  learned  counsel  for  original
      petitioners as well as the counsel for the intervenors.
      (2)        The  original  petitioners  raised  the  dispute  regarding
      examination conducted by the appellant Andhra Pradesh  Public  Service
      Commission for selection for the Grade-I Services in  Andhra  Pradesh.
      The  examination  was  to  be  conducted  in  two  parts,  first   the
      preliminary  examination  which  was  to  be  for  150   marks.    The
      preliminary examination was of objective  type  wherein  four  choices
      were given and the candidates were to chose one of them and answer the
      same in OMR Sheet. Those who qualified in the first  examination  i.e.
      the preliminary examination were to be eligible to appear in the  main
      examination.                                              ..2/-
      (3)  After considering the reports of a couple of committees the  High
      Court arrived at a decision wherein according to it the Andhra Pradesh
      Public Service Commission will have to revise the selection process in
      accordance with the answer arrived at by  the  expert  committee,  and
      issue proper orders.  The  High  Court  directed  the  Andhra  Pradesh
      Public Service Commission to re-examine the whole  issue  and  consult

      (4)        Being  aggrieved,  the  Andhra   Pradesh   Public   Service
      Commission filed this appeal.  Even after whatever screening has  been
      done earlier, we find the following six questions and there answers to
      be problematic.  It is the specific case of the  original  petitioners
      that the key answers given by  APPSC  for  six   questions  at  Serial
      Nos.4, 43, 61, 62, 107 and 130 in "D" series   are  confusing.   These
      questions did not have one clear answer and that being so it  will  be
      unfair to the candidates that the preliminary  examination  should  be
      decided by including these six questions. By our order passed  on  the
      last date we asked Mr. Diwan to take instructions as to whether  these
      problematic questions could be deleted.

      (5)       Having heard learned counsel for the parties, we are of  the
      view that these questions cannot be retained .   That  being  so,  the
      marks secured have to be recounted from the answer  books  written  by
      all the candidates on the basis of 144 questions after deleting  these
      six questions and their answers.  Those who succeed after  revaluation
      will be eligible for the  main  examination  and  the  Andhra  Pradesh
      Public Service Commission will  hold  the  main  examination  de  novo
      thereafter.       On  the  basis  of  these  144  questions  some  new
      candidates may succeed or some candidates may fail. It will be the new
      list of candidates passing the examination of 144 marks who will  take
      second main examination.

      (6)       The appeals are allowed accordingly.
