Even supposing transportation economists have recommended the tolling of city streets as a mechanism for controlling congestion and dealing with trip calls for for over 50 years, it's only lately that this concept has turn into useful. compared to the choice of establishing extra roads, congestion pricing - specifically through digital tolling - is appealing and has been followed in nations around the globe. fresh implementations in London, Singapore, and numerous towns in Norway, in addition to a few initiatives within the usa, were judged successful.This booklet provides rigorous remedies of matters with regards to congestion pricing. The chapters describe fresh advances in components equivalent to mathematical and computational types for predicting traffic jam, picking whilst, the place, and what sort of to levy tolls, and examining the influence of tolls on transporation structures. The analyses and methodologies built during this ebook provide:- Mechanisms that reduction in opting for and evaluating congestion pricing schemes- Methodologies for comparing the potency of present and proposed congestion pricing schemes- a method to foretell the influence of pricing on city transporation platforms- details necessary to the monetary and political luck of congestion pricing courses.

The secondary 14 L. Singh and N. 41 % of state domestic product. 89 % (GOP 2013). There has been a sharp decline in the agriculture sector’s contribution to the state domestic product, and the secondary sector is maintaining its share but tertiary services are fast gaining in share. 24 % of the workforce (GOI 2011). The long-term sustainability of a developing economy is determined by the rate of its structural transformation and the dynamics of its emerging productive sectors. For understanding the dynamics of structural change and sustainability of the emerging development path of the Punjab economy, three contributions analysing the nature and growth of emerging sectors, that is, industry and services, are included in this section.

Z. Ali examine the wheat revolution and its economic consequences for agriculture development in Chap. 3. The authors note that agricultural productivity variations across India’s states are quite large. Agricultural productivity, which increased manifold during the early Green Revolution period in Punjab, is now stagnating. Can agricultural productivity be increased with the same combination of factors through which productivity was increased earlier? This question is put to the test by the authors by employing a simultaneous equation econometric model to determine factors affecting productivity growth of wheat in India as a whole as well as in Punjab specifically.

However, these reports and individual suggestions have tended to gather dust in the corridors of power in the state. Twenty-two independent economists, who had been intensively involved in the economic analysis of problems of Punjab’s development experience, gathered at Punjabi university several years ago, arrived at a minimum consensus and suggested public policy measures for the rejuvenation of the Punjab economy (CDEIS 2012). But Punjab is a typical case of public policy paralysis. It is trapped in a vicious cycle.
