Why is it important?

It classifies the pulp and paper (P&P) industry in India into two major sub-sectors within the industry, which uses different raw materials, such as wood-based raw material and recycled paper-based raw materials, and examines the degree of value-added owing to traditional inputs and advanced industrial technology use.


The study measures the degree of value-added within the Pulp and Paper industry in India, which goes beyond the 'one-size-fits-all' approach and provides an in-depth understanding for sector-specific policy making. The writing of this paper was a great learning experience.
