In an 82-page printed document, “The third Five-Year Plan – a tentative outline,” published on the eve of the AICC session at Chandigarh, which will consider the general approach to the Third Plan, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, a representative body of Indian businessmen, has advanced a number of reasons for increased participation of the private sector, one of them being “the change in the pattern of investment opportunities as well as greater specialisation and diversification in industry.” It has suggested a 45 per cent share for the private sector in the proposed investment of Rs.10,000 crores in the Third Five-Year Plan.
