INTER-TEMPORAL AND CROSS-SECTION VARIATIONS IN TECHNICAL EFFICIENCY IN THE INDIAN RAILWAYS

This paper uses recent advances in the theory of measurement of technical efficiency using panel data to estimate zone specific technical efficiency in the Indian railways for the period 1966-67 to 1988-89. The analysis covers goods as well as passenger traffic. Apart from providing an indepth and precise profile of the behaviour of technical efficiency in the Indian railways, this analysis provides a framework from which potentially significant policy conclusions can be drawn.
