Abstract

Savings is an indispensable part of economic growth. A good relationship between savings and economic growth has a lot to do with the effective functioning of the economy. This paper examines the relationship between Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Gross Domestic Savings (GDS) in the context of Indian Economy. To analyse the relationship, data for a long period of 61 years i.e., from 1950-1951 to 2010-2011 has been used. To derive accurate results usually a lengthy period is considered. Structural changes may take place when the regression model involves time series data to measure the relationship between the regressand and the regressors. In fact, structural changes may occur due to policy changes and many other factors. Therefore, to estimate these structural changes the chow break point test has been used. The data used has been divided into pre-reform period that is from 195051 to 1990-91 and post-reform period - from 199192 to 2010-2011. An analysis of the relationship suggests that GDP has positively influenced GDS in the pre-reform and post-reform period. The Chow break point test also confirms the results. Therefore all the intricacies of the impact on savings due to changes in Gross Domestic Product is considered and analysed.
