Dear Colleagues, I enclosed 2 papers (a short one in English published resently in the Indian journal EPW, and a longer one published in 2016 in the French journal "Economie Rurale") that may be useful for the preparation of the report. They illustrate how what you call "successful economic development and structural transformation of economies" may be questioned in a country like India due to land constraints and jobless growth that are disregarded by current theories of economic development and rural-urban migrations.
