The sc-called Gujarat Model, is often touted as the best model of development.  It is well known that the heavy bias was there in terms of heavy industry and huge private sector employment and the service sector development.  But critics have pointed out how Gujarat flopped heavily, when it came to agriculture.  So, is it the right model of development?  Do we have alternate models that can also be considered?

    No I am not agree, Gujarat model of development is not an universe and perfect model. India is cluster of different states. Every state have different climate, sand structure, habit of peoples and some more. Gujarati known for their business skill for ancient time. Peoples all Punjab are known for their agriculture skill. So Model of Gujarat is not good for Punjab. Agriculture in India is depends of mansoon. It is game of uncertainty. Few state like Punjab and Haryana, which have good network of canals is doing good in this field. Here in Rajasthan farmers are  committing suicide because of failure of mansoon in last two months.

    There can be no uniform model for all states. The states like Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Rajasthan, Haryana give soldiers to the nation and thus help in defendingour borders. Some states are rich in mineral wealth and so mining is their base of development. Each state has to develp on basis ofits own peculiarities.

    Exactly sir.  For  example in AP there is a long coastline. This enables us to go for sea based industries like Fish exports to many countries. Likewise other states too utilize their natural resources. This facility may not be there in other states.

    Before trying to comment on Gujarat model would anyone be kind enough to define what exactly is meant by the Gujarat Model?

    special facet of the development of Gujarat is that it is not centered around any one sector. All the three sectors namely agriculture, industries and services made and equal and active contribution towards the growth of Gujarat.

    And they vary from state to state.

    I think it should cover over all development of a state including, law, development in all sectors namely industry, agriculture, infrastructure etc as well as safety and social care/protection for all. Gujarat has done comparatively than most states if not all. better

    The growth of service sector in Gujarat has been lagging most of the other States. As some one pointed out in a TV debate there  is shortage of white collar jobs in Gujarat. The state has developed in manufacturing sectors of pharma, chemicals, and now in automobiles which  offer blue collar jobs. Agriculture sector is good because mostly cash crops are grown like tobacco, groundnuts, sugarcane, castor and cotton. I would like to state here that Gujarat was always an economically better state because of its port facilities  and an important contribution made by NRI Gujaratis who send lot of dollars back home. Also its proximity to Mumbai port in earlier decades and cotton crop and cotton mills brought prosperity to it. The peace loving nature of Gujaratis also helped  in smooth development. When BJP formed govt. under Modi in 2001 Gujarat was ahead of other States in economic development but lagged in social parameters. When Modi left in 2014 the situation was the same but in between spin doctors coined the propaganda slogan Gujarat Model! As a politician he has milked the situation to his favor which is perfectly alright but reality check also must be permitted.
