This article addresses the question of whether free international trade flow in silk industry, especially in the post MFA regime, could usher inclusive development in that specific sector. I propose ‘employment’ and ‘production’ as the two parameters of inclusive development in this sector and derived initially cohesion, though weak, of this parameter with earnings from exports of silk and silk goods. However, analyzing the secondary data over the post globalized era (1995-96 to 2014-15), I conclude that ‘inclusive development’ which have virtually taken place in Indian sericulture sector is not originated from free flow of international trade, rather ‘land productivity’ is conducive to inclusive development in this sector.
