what are the broad objective of planning in india in economics ?
Indian plans have been concerned with the removal of economic backwardness of the country and make it a developed economy. They have also taken care to ensure that the weaker sections of the population benefit from the economic progress of the country. Some successes have indeed been achieved in all these spheres. Each plan, beginning with the First Plan in 1951, listed the basic objectives of India’s development. These objectives provide so to say the guiding principles of Indian planning. Within this framework, each Five Year Plan formulated objectives keeping in view the problems arising from the new constraints and new possibilities. This gave rise to what may be called, the immediate objectives of each plan. These objectives have, however, been subservient to the basic or common objectives.
