1. Which was the least producing sector in 1973-74? State the reasons.


Answer by Student

The least-producing sector in 1973-74 was the secondary sector . The reasons are:

  • The secondary sector includes manufacturing , construction , and electricity .
  • India was a closed economy at that period, which means that it had limited trade and investment with other countries.
  • Industrial policy restricted the freedom to enter various kinds of industries and tedious licensing policy discouraged new players from coming in.
