Abstract

The political aim of the Government of India's small industries policy-the creation of a class of small capitalist entrepreneurs-required two measures to ensure its fulfillment.Firstly, the demarcating line between small and big capital had to be defined in a way that was both administratively easy to handle and captured in an acceptable manner the essential difference between 'small' and 'large' across a wide range of industries.Secondly, ways had to be devised to ensure against the entry of ineligible persons or conglomerates to the special provisions of the development schemes. This paper assesses the success of the Government's efforts in these directions
