Indian Economy: Conditions for Growth


India has achieved steady economic growth since the 1980s. In particular, it has experienced high economic growth rates in recent years. Though average per capita income is still low in this country, the second most populous in the world, its market size is attracting worldwide attention.

A question, however, arises; will India be able to sustain its high growth? To answer this question, first, our research project looks at the determinants of India’s economic growth and then analyzes bottlenecks and constraints that may become barriers to its continued economic progress.

Specifically we take up the issues of agricultural development, infrastructure, human capital development, the financial sector, income inequality, trade, and technological progress.
Based on this, we attempt to derive conditions for India’s sustained economic growth.
