We have considered Net State Domestic Product at Factor cost on constant prices (NSDP) and Per-capita Net State Domestic Product at Factor cost ( PerNSDP)on constant price as proxy for economic growth. Using the panel least square with fixed and random effect NSDP and Per NSDP has regressed separately on Expenditure on education and Expenditure on education as a percentage of aggregate expenditure.
