    Although a high rate of urbanization and a high incidence of rural poverty are two distinct features of many developing countries, there is little knowledge of the effects of the former on the latter. Using a large sample of Indian districts from the 1983–1999 period, we find that urbanization has a substantial and systematic poverty-reducing effect in the surrounding rural areas.

    After almost a decade of high-level
    effort to bring the charges (tariffs) that farmers pay for
    electricity more nearly into line with the costs of supply,
    India has barely made a dent in the longstanding and
    increasingly uneconomical practice of subsidizing power to
    agricultural consumers for irrigation. Progress has been
    slowed by the understandable but misplaced concern that
    higher tariffs would harm farmers--and that the injured

    The report analyzes poverty incidence in
    India and in particular, in Uttar Pradesh (UP), and defines
    its poverty levels, trends, and vulnerability. While UP once
    appeared positioned to be the pace-setter for India's
    economic, and social development in light of its rich
    potential in human, and natural resources, economic growth
    faltered in the 1990s. UP fell behind India's better
    performing states, and, despite a recent acceleration in

    India's transport
    system--especially surface transport--is seriously
    deficient, and its services are highly inefficient by
    international standards. The economic losses from congestion
    and poor roads are estimated at 120 to 300 billion rupees a
    year. This report takes a critical assessment of the key
    policy and institutional issues that continue to contribute
    to the poor performance of the transport sector in India.

    Jharkhand, India's youngest and
    28th state came into existence in November 2000 pursuant to
    the reorganization of the erstwhile State of Bihar by the
    Bihar State Reorganization Act, 2000. More than 77 percent
    of the population of the state resides in rural areas and
    depends on agriculture for sustenance. Jharkhand is one of
    the richest states in the country in terms of mineral
    resources. Close to half of the gross domestic product

    The authors analyze the effects of
    building height restrictions, providing a concrete welfare
    cost estimate for the city of Bangalore, India. Relying on
    several theoretical results, their analysis shows that the
    welfare cost imposed on its residents by Bangalore's
    building height restriction ranges between 3 and 6 percent
    of household consumption. This burden represents a
    significant share of individual resources, and its presence

    Decentralized forest management is an
    important policy issue in India and elsewhere. Yet there are
    few careful studies of the impacts of community forestry.
    The authors try to fill this gap by analyzing National
    Sample Survey data from 524 villages in five states in
    India. Their analysis seeks to answer two key questions: (1)
    Who participates in community forestry and what are the
    determinants of participation? (2) What is the impact of

    The main objective of this fiscal note
    is to assist the Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) in
    meeting the challenges mentioned above. To this end, it
    provides input into the state's rolling medium-term
    fiscal framework exercise. The new Fiscal Responsibility and
    Budget Management (FRBM) act requires that the government
    will lay out in each financial year a medium-term fiscal
    policy statement (together with three-year rolling targets

    Twenty-two of India's 31 states are
    regarded as particularly prone to natural disasters: 55% of
    its land is vulnerable to earthquake, 8% is vulnerable to
    cyclone, and 5% is vulnerable to flood. In light of
    India's vulnerability to growing losses due to natural
    disasters and escalating fiscal pressures at the central and
    state levels, the World Bank undertook a detailed review of
    India's catastrophe exposures. The goal of this project
