Sharing a piece of its history...
Year 1988: Upon publication of the first edition of this book, which was originally designed for students of the University of Delhi, Prof. VKRV Rao, the legendary economist, policymaker and institution builder, thus wrote   in a letter addressed to the editor Uma Kapila:
“...It will be a most unusual kind of textbook for pioneering which you deserve congratulations. I, therefore, send you   my good wishes for the success of the publication and its use by students who do Economics Honours not only in the University of Delhi but also other universities.”   
—V.K.R.V. Rao
“The annual edition of Dr. Uma Kapila’s Indian Economy since Independence has become a staple, annually updated, reference for University students throughout the country, for aspirants for the civil service and other examinations, and  for all those interested in a single comprehensive source of information, and analysis by a galaxy of scholars, on the Indian economy. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition marks a milestone in a remarkable journey, begun in 1988 by a revered teacher of long standing from Delhi University.”
