 The Indian Government, after independance, had put barriers to foreign trade and foreign investment. This was considered necessary to protect the producers within the country from foreign competition. 
Industries were just coming up in the 1950's and 1960's and competiton from imports would not have allowed many small scale industries to set up. Thus India allowed imports on very essential items such as machinery, petroleum etc.

True projected domestic producers - industries were just coming up in the 1950's and 1960's and competition from imports at that stage would have not allowed these industries to come up . Thus, India allowed imports of only essential goods like machinery , fertilizers,etc . TO ESTABLISH BASIC INDUSTRIES - some restrictions were imposed by the government to provide boost to industries such as iron and steel , coal etc Around 1991 government thought it was the proper time to remove trade barriers and allow domestic Domestic producers to compete against the foreign products and improve their product quality comparision to foreign products

The Indian government had put barriers to foreign trade and investment to protect domestic from foreign competition. This was specially important when industries had just began to come up in the 1950 and 1960. At this time competition from import would havebeen counter productive to the growth of industries. Therefore the Indian government allowed import of only essential goods. In the new economic policy in 1991 the government decided to remove these barriers because it felt that domestic producers were ready to compete with foreign industries.
