Abstract

Waquar Ahmed examines the evolution of electric-power policy in India by drawing linkages between global and local national discourses, of development. He focuses on the objectives and goals of the developmental state of India after the end of colonial occupation, and how the transition from Keynesianism to neo-liberalism as the dominant developmental discourse at the global level has impacted India's power policy. He focuses on the dynamic nature of state-society coalition in India in order to understand how changing coalitions at different points of time in history, have impacted India's power policy.
