About The Book

This book "Business and Government", which is the result of considerable amount of research and teaching experience, is the best-seller in India on the subject. The introduction of this work about three decades ago, when the literature on this subject was scanty and information sourcing was very difficult, filled a very critical gap, serving the needs of teachers and students of management and several other disciplines and others who were eager to know the government regulation and promotion of business in India. The book has been revised and modified frequently, capturing the changes in the government-business linkages in particular and the business environment in general.

This book, like the other works of this renowned author, is acclaimed for its critical approach, lucid and succinct treatment and logical presentation of the subject matter. Margin notes which highlight salient points is an attractive feature of this book.
