In the following booklet titled “Some Contradictions In The Plan” by Prof. C.N. Vakil, the authors begins by drawing an analogy between couples and the spending departments of the Government, where callous spending by Ministers and Officers without reference to the resources of the Ministry results in deficit financing. The author highlights the need for maintaining a delicate balance between agriculture and industries because emphasis on heavy industries without leaving room for adequate arrangements of agricultural surplus leads to economic frustrations. While the gloom of a rapidly increasing population growth threatens to overtake economic progress, the plan fails to acknowledge the existing unemployment in full, partial or disguised manners. The author proposes the need for balanced growth such that rapid increase in agricultural yield would ensure human resource for industrial growth as well. This would further counteract the inflationary pressures arising from a lack of consumer goods and ensure smooth functioning of the plan.
