In India, there are substantial inter-state and intra state disparities in the level of growth of output and per capita income. In order to promote the industrialization of the backward areas in the country, the growth centers program was announced by the government of India in June 1988. According to this program, 71 growth centers were set up throughout the country that  were allotted to the various states on the basis of a combined criteria of area, population an d the extent of industrial backwardness in the ratio of 1:2:1 respectively. These growth centers provide basic industrial infrastructure like power, water telecom and banking to enable the states to attract industries.
