It’s a great pleasure to me to introduce the book, entitled ‘Indian And Kerala Economies: Key Concepts, Techniques & Latest Trends in a Lucid Format’ which is highly useful and helpful for the UPSC, PSC, KAS, SSC, IBPS, SBI, RBI, LIC, RRB, SSB and all other competitive examinations. The aim of the book is not to provide a fact sheet of Indian economy and Kerala economy. Its sole concern is to give a conceptual clarity, major issues and challenges, their remedies, economic policies, programmes and so on. Of course, one of the key highlights of this book is that it presents the key concepts and terminologies of economics in a lucid format with interesting illustrations. It also adds to it the latest data, trends of economy of India, recent developments of global economy, new areas of economy like prompt corrective action (PCA), production price index, monetary policy reviews, Kerala Economy and such other facts.
