Abstract: India’s approach to development has always been a combination of ‘pro-poor growth’ strategies. In spite of that, majority urban population has remained deprived from basic necessity of human life. In an effort to overhaul this stagnation, the country has consciously shifted its development ideology to inclusive growth in 11th Five-Year Plan 2007. Although the plan did not define inclusive growth, but initiates a debate on the significance of inclusive growth with earlier policy approaches. Initiating a policy argument, this paper records an overview of Indian policy approaches up to year 2014 and analyses its possibilities of achieving inclusive urban growth. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
