Showing familiarity with the enormous literature on subcontracting in manufacturing both within and outside India, and displaying ability to critically evaluate the literature, this study does a commendable job in managing to collect very useful data for the study of a lead or parent firm and its ancillary units in the 1980s, and thereby give a concrete flavor of the subcontracting relationship. On the basis of the case study, it is highlighted that the subcontracting relationship between the large parent firm and small ancillary firms is symbiotic for the takers of subcontracts and beneficial to the parent firm.
