The Background

The economic liberalisation, in early 1990s, brought new opportunities to India and slowly it started being considered an emerging economy. Today, India has one of the highest growth rate for a large economy. It ranks among top 10 nations in terms of GDP at factor cost and third largest in terms of GDP on PPP basis.

Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India, in one of his Independence Day speech, had said "No power in the world can stop our country from achieving new heights of progress & development." The direct fund transfer through electronic medium; e-governance; free press; economic reforms; increased awareness about their rights and participation of youth on all important national issues; inclusion of India on all important international forums, etc. provide the glimpse of a turnaround story. Another very important factor adding to India's strength is that about 50 percent of its over 1.2 billion population is in the productive age group.

The Global recession in 2009 has impacted all the countries. India's rapid growth has also got adversely impacted in the recent past. Along with the global economic factors, many internal policy and implementation issues are also considered responsible for the present slowdown in India.
