As a result of therestriction in the past, India‟s performance in the global market has been very dismal;we have never reached even the 1% in the global market. We have vast naturalresources with high efficiency labor, but after all this we were still contributing with0.53% till 1992. There were many problems in liberalization, but before that thedefinition of liberalization: It is defined as making economics free to enter in themarket and establish there venture in the country.IMPACT BEFORE LIBERLISATION (1) The low annual growth rate of the economy of India before 1980, which stagnated around 3.5% from 1950s to 1980s, while per capita income averaged 1.3%.

The term is sometimes used to refer specifically toeconomic globalization: the integration of national economies into the internationaleconomy through trade, foreign direct investment, capital flows, migration, and thespread of technology. However, globalization is usually recognized as being driven by
a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural, political, and biologicalfactors.(2)LPG Model of Development.(a) This has a very narrow focus since it largely concentrates on the corporate sectorwhich accounts for only 10 percent of GDP.(b) The model bypasses agriculture and agro based industries which are a majorsource of generation of employment for the masses. It did not delineate a concretepolicy to develop infrastructure. Financial and technological support, particularly theinfrastructural needs of agro-exports.(c) By permitting free entry of the multinational corporations in the consumer goodssector, the model has hit the interests of the small and medium sector engaged in theproduction of consumer goods. There is danger of labor displacement in the smallsector if unbridled entry of MNCs is continued.(d) By facilitating imports, the Government has opened the import window too wideand consequently, the benefits of rising exports are more than offset by much greaterrise in imports leading to a larger trade gap.(e) Finally the model emphasizes a capital intensive pattern of development and thereare serious apprehensions about its employment-potential.
