IMPACT OF INDUSTRIALIZATION• Major role in economic development for underdeveloped countries.• Provided a secure basis for a rapid of growth of income.• Helped in raising the standard of living• Provided employment, meeting high income demands• It brings in technological progress and change in the outlook of the people• Has decreased the dependency on foreign resources• The government took over the sick units which cannot be re-habiliated by the public sector financial institutions
CONCLUSION In spite of the benefits if Industrialization, there are setbacks. The major one being, poor infrastructure acting as a hindrance to the growth of the Indian economy. Also, the inefficient public sector has lead to corruption and therefore lowered the quality of production and industrialization. There is also a lack of skilled of labour which has slowed down the process of industrialization.In the case of creative industries and service industries, the growth has been steady and fruitful, contributing a lot to the strengthening oh the economy.
