The study examines the role of intersectoral linkages in the Punjab economy which is an agriculturally dominant state. Rapid growth inthe agricultural sector had widespread impact on the entire economy. To increase agricultural production the industrial sector had to cope up with this sector, Growth in the agricultural sector generated a strong demand for industrial consumption goods thus promoting the growth of the non-farm sector along with its own growth. Further improvements in the growth rates in the agricultural sector would require the industrial sector to improve at an even faster rate.
