The Paper analyzes the dynamics of inter-industrial linkages for the economy of Uttar-Pradesh, India within the Input-Output framework. It applies the graph-theoretic approach for the categorization and classification of industrial sectors and groupings, i.e., cluster analysis. This approach helps in classifying each industry into one of the five categories, namely, the ‘transmitter’, ‘receiver’, ‘carriers’, ‘ordinary’, and ‘isolate’ sectors. In this manner six prominent industrial groups have been identified for the state economy. The significant inter- industrial dependency within a specific group implies that it would be difficult to develop a single industry of the group in isolation. The group as a whole should be developed in order to yield maximum gains from the technological links of the sectors in the context of overall regional development.
