Can Firm Clusters Foster Non-Farm Jobs? Policy Issues for Rural India

Published By: GIDR, Ahmedabad, India | Published Date: April, 03 , 2003

The present paper argues that a comprehensive rural industrialisation/cluster development strategy has to be designed within a broader regional development perspective that does not fail to include employment generation as a, if not the, critical dimension.A mechanistic, replicative and essentially ad hoc approach to cluster development that is oblivious to the developmental constraints facing the Indian rural economy may fail to succeed in generating employment opportunities as also in creating a competitive and sustainable rural industrial base.
