For a variety of reasons, reaping higher international prices of rice in responsw to the demonstrated comparative advantages of India is not as easy a task as the recent calculations of global competitiveness coefficients by Gulati and his associates seem to suggest. It is against this background the paper has critically examined the existing literature and applied policy Analysis Matrix (PAM) to data collected from Indian exporters with two purposes: first, to paramaterise India's proclaimed comparative advantage in rice and examine the 'roubstness' of this result with respect to various national and international parameters, and second, to supplement this excercise with additional qualitative considerations.
