The analysis is focused mainly on merchandise export of India in the post liberalised period. The classification of merchandise export according to their technology intensity is based on OECD classification for the same. The analysis is done at 2-digit level for all commodities and at 3-digit level for some selected commodities. The study reveals that, India’s Export is dominated by medium-low technology intensive commodities. Export of low technology intensive is still prominent, while medium-high technology is showing signs of improvement, especially in recent periods.
