A Comparative Study of Gujarat and Kerala Developmental Experiences


 By Sazzad Parwez

International Journal of Rural Management

This article examines the experiences of economic growth and social development with reference to comparative analysis of Gujarat and Kerala. Different aspects of economic growth and social indicators have been observed. Theoretical and empirical evidences suggest that there is a positive relationship between economic growth and social development. However, the economic development has not been necessarily accompanied adequately by social development, especially in case of Gujarat. It is reinforced by the Human Development Index (HDI) position of Gujarat. Kerala has performed positively in terms of social indicators but economy has been in disarray, as it is ranked among bottom half of the country. This study is based on secondary data gathered from several government and international organizations. The article concludes by arguing that the governments should be equally concerned about both social development and economic development
