Ms. M Sudha gets Ph.D in Economics
The Andhra University has awarded Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) to Ms. M. Sudha in Economics for her thesis entitled "Growth and Structural Changes in the Indian Industry and Environmental Pollution".
In her study, Ms. Sudha found that the structural changes that are taking place in the industry are in favour of highly pollution intensive industries. Industrialisation is an engine for economic growth. It is also true that industrilisation is creating a high risk environment.
The study analysed the structural changes and growth pattern of the Indian industry in relation to pollution intensity, using the classification of industries by Central Pollution Control Board.
Dr. Sudha found that industries which are of high pollution intensive like chemical products and basic chemicals, power generation and distribution, basic metals and alloys and food products are growing at a very faster rate than the other relatively less pollution intensive industries.
She found that the industries in the country are not properly using the pollution abatement technologies and it was evident from the status of environmental pollution in various places.
She suggested that a more efficient changes in the policy for controlling pollution on the lines of pollution pay principle, fixing the rates of emissions, creating public awareness. She has also suggested that there is a necessity for the coordination among the Pollution control boards, factories departments, and industries departments and other government agencies to control the environmental pollution and achieve the growth of industrial output.
