This chapter analyzes the economic growth process in India to show its lack of inclusiveness, then identify the various economic and social dimensions of exclusion, and suggest policy measures that could be taken for achieving inclusive growth. It provides evidence to show that India’s economic growth has been accompanied by increasing interpersonal and interregional income disparities with poverty levels being considerably higher than was suggested by earlier estimates. While social exclusion has long been practiced in India on the basis of religion, caste, ethnicity, and gender, a new form is ‘market exclusion’ which has been exacerbated with the adoption of polices of liberalization and globalization. It examines the Constitution of India and various legislative measures targeted against specific types of discrimination and exclusion. However, the Five Year Plan initiatives for addressing the problem, have ‘suffered from inadequacy of resources and poor implementation’.

Keywords:   inclusiveness, exclusion, income disparities, market exclusion, constitution, discrimination
