“Place-based Preferential Tax Policy and its Spatial Effects: Evidence from India’s Program on Industrially Backward Districts” [paper]

Abstract

We evaluate a tax-exemption program the Indian government initiated in 1994 to promote manufacturing in 123 industrially backward districts. The way the backward districts were identified enables us to employ a regression discontinuity design to evaluate the impacts of the program. We find that the program has led to a significant increase in firm entry and employment, particularly among the light manufacturing industries, in the better-off backward districts. Meanwhile, the program also resulted in significant displacement effects on districts which were neighboring these backward districts and relatively weak in economic activity. The findings emphasize that the spatial effects of place-based policies deserve greater attention from policy makers.
