Is India destined to remain a caged tiger, its potential forever unrealised due to misgovernance? Both the central and state levels hold the answer. For the economy to grow, the Central government must foster a fair and competitive private sector and deliver robust public services. Its success is piecemeal in this regard. With regard to the role of State governments, in-depth reportage from six states reveals neglect, inefficiency and corruption. Why is it so difficult to create an enabling environment for business and innovation? What remedial action must the Indian state take to fulfill the potential of this country and its citizens?
