India: Regionalism
Country Study > Chapter 4 > Language, Ethnicity, and Regionalism > Regionalism

REGIONALISM


The formation of states along linguistic and ethnic lines has occurred in India in numerous instances since independence in 1947. How the central government responds to these demands will be an area of scrutiny through the late 1990s and beyond. It is believed by some officials that conceding regional autonomy is less arduous and takes less time and fewer resources than does meeting agitation, violence, and demands for concessions.
