FEATURES OF NIP,1991 (cont…..)INDUSTRIAL POLICIES: INDUSTRIAL POLICIESPositives & Watch- Outs: Positives & Watch- Outs POSITIVES: De-licensing of most industries will help entrepreneurs to quickly seize business opportunities. Removal of controls under the MRTP Act will facilitate expansion and growth. There will be greater inflow of foreign capital and technology due to easing of restrictions. Burden on the public sector will be reduced. WATCH-OUTS: . The bureaucracy has a tendency to attempt to defeat measures aimed at deregulations. Foreign investors still regard the policy and procedural system in India confusing. Rather many feel that policy and development environment in China is superior to India. Distortion in Industrial pattern would occur due to slow pace of investment in few basic and strategic industries. Absence of a mechanism would slow down the development of backward areas You do not have the permission to view this presentation. In order to view it, please contact the author of the presentation.
