About the book:
What kind of economic reforms were carried out and how did they affect the country? What were our expectations in 1991, and what has been achieved and not achieved since then? This is the ultimate compendium on the 1991 reforms and a celebration of the luminaries who have been a part of India’s journey from the inception of the economic reforms to where we stand now.
