Important Questions for NCERT Class 10 Social Science Life Lines Of National Economy

Question. Means of transport and communication are called the lifelines of a nation and its economy. What are the main reasons behind it?
How are means of transport and communications complementary to each other? Explain with three examples.
Ans. (i) The development of a country depends upon the production of goods and services as well as their movement to their destination. Transport plays an important role in the economy. Because of transport, raw materials reach to the factory or industry and finished products reach to the consumers. Transport has helped in both production and distribution of goods. Hence, efficient means of transport are prerequisites for fast development.
(ii) For a long time, trade and transport were restricted to a limited space. With the development in science and technology, the area of influence of trade and transport expanded far and wide. Today, the world has been converted to a large village with the help of efficient and fast moving transport. Transport has been able to achieve this with the help of equally developed communications system. Therefore, transport, communications and trade are complementary to each other.
(iii) India is well-linked with the rest of the world despite its vast size, diversity, linguistic and socio-cultural plurality. Railways, airways, waterways, newspapers, radio, television, cinema and internet, etc. have been contributing to its socio-economic progress in many ways. The trades from local to international levels have added to the vitality of its economy. It has also enriched our life and added substantially to growing amenities and facilities for the comforts of life. Hence, it is right to say that means of transportation and communication are the lifelines of a nation and its economy.
