Abstract (Summary of the Work)

A macroeconometric model seeks to portray the functioning of an economy at an aggregative level, i.e., in terms of important macrovariables and their interrelationships. The empirical counterpart of such a model is what is called a macroeconometric model when the macrorelations are posited statistically, employing probabilistic methods of estimation and/or hypothesis testing. The present study covers both aspects of a macromodel. On the theoretical side, it builds up a macroeconomic model which may be relevant for a country like India. On the empirical-statistical side, it goes on to formulate a macroeconometric model. There is a clear interdependence between these two parts of the study, since not only has the macroeconometric model been constructed on the basis of the macroeconomic model, but the formulation of the macroeconometric model has also been influenced by the various empirical results obtained in the course of the present study.
