income, bigger will be the care from which distribution of various citizens will take
place. All the citizens will benefits if population growth is not very high, rate of
investment is stable and income inequality is reduced.
Per Capita Income If the national income increases but population is increasing at
faster rate, then income available with each individual decreases. It is therefore
important for national income to grow at higher rate than population growth to
increase the welfare of the people.
Per Capita Consumption Ultimately the individual earns income to consume
either at present or in future. They can postpone their current consumption in order
to purchase durable products at a later time. Postponement is good for
underdeveloped countries. It increases the saving and can create new investment
opportunities leading to increase in national income in future. But in developed
countries it leads to low investment and pull the national income lower.

contribute substantially to an overall economic development of the country,
it will be rational and appropriate to place greater emphasis on further
development of the agricultural sector.
The leading industrialized countries of today were once predominantly
agricultural while the developing economies still have the dominance of
agriculture and it largely contributes to the national income.
Agriculture is the basic source of food supply of all the countries of the world
whether underdeveloped, developing or even developed. Due to heavy
pressure of population in underdeveloped and developing
Agricultural advancement is necessary for improving the supply of raw

Importance Of Industrialization in Economic

Industrial development is necessary for modernisation of agriculture.
Industrial development encourages the development of science and technology.
Acute deficiency of capital is the main problem of Indian economy. In agricultural
sector, the surplus is small. So industrialization helps in capital formation.
Urbanisation succeeds industrialisation. Industrialisation in a particular region
brings growth of transport and communication.
Industrialisation plays an important role in the promotion of international trade.
Industrialization plays important role for proper utilization of resources.
Industrial development helps in the rapid growth of national and per capita
A country cannot produce goods and services of high quality in order to attain
decent living standard without the progress of industrial sector.

population tends to decrease.
Decrease in Inequality of Income Income inequality tends to decrease
as economic development takes place.
Increase in importance of Service Sector As the economic
development takes place, the share of agriculture sector decreases
and that of industry and service sector increases in the GDP.

Difference Between Economic Growth And

Economic Growth does not take into account the size of the informal economy. The informal economy
is also known as the black economy which is unrecorded economic activity. Development alleviates
people from low standards of living into proper employment with suitable shelter. Economic Growth
does not take into account the depletion of natural resources which might lead to pollution,
congestion & disease.
Economic Development however is concerned with sustainability which means meeting the needs of
the present without compromising future needs. These environmental effects are becoming more of
a problem for Governments now that the pressure has increased on them due to Global warming.

savings and investment along with progressive changes
