Samvaad: The Economics Conclave

Indian Economy at the cusp of radical change

“If we decide, we can change the condition of the Indian Economy. We have to take up the responsibility and show commitment.” - PM Narendra Modi

Samvaad: The Economics Conclave

The World’s fastest growing Economy, India has faced reforms in past few months like never before. For the economy, poised to grow at 7.1 % and has been largely cash-based, the events of recent past will have far reaching ramifications. The various schemes launched by government are catalysts in the development of the country. Be it the schemes for financial inclusion or the Government’s bid to transform the country by promoting digital payments, the changes are finally expected to bring about the “Ache Din”, as promised.

Increasing Financial literacy, lower real estate prices and cheaper credit for the common Indian man, have been a few of the immediate outcomes. Former President of India, Late Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam said, “Only strength respects strength. We must be strong not only as a military power, but also as an economic power.” The advancement of release and merging of the Union and Railway Budget is also expected to work in Taxpayers’ favour. With the launch of the Goods and Services Tax also imminent, the country now peeps into an Economic Reform that will lay the foundation of a more inclusive Indian Economy.
