From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

India Unbound is a book written by Gurcharan Das. The author offers a view of the economic and social transformation of India. It describes the author's prescriptions to aid India's rise from poverty to prosperity. Much of the book is devoted to a criticism of Nehruvian socialism, which the author charges with having hobbled the Indian economy until 1991, when P. V. Narasimha Rao, the then Indian Prime minister, instituted sweeping liberal reforms that led to greater economic growth. The change in policy during 1991 was a direct effect of the fiscal crisis that resulted in India declaring itself bankrupt and asking the World Bank for monetary assistance.
