India has ambitiously tasked itself to leap to the next level on the development ladder to a “developed India” tag by 2047. The country is categorised as an “Aspirational Society,” aiming to seize the opportunities provided by an economy that maintains steady and high economic growth. This society aspires for better living standards, including the bare necessities, better health care, education, clean water, sanitation facilities, affordable housing, electricity and the internet.
The big tent of India’s social infrastructure must reach a diverse and expansive populace, transcending cultures, languages, and geographies, after all! The Government is thus making all efforts to live up to this challenge and demands of society, as economic growth without shared prosperity and well-being is devoid of meaning.
A vast ground has been covered to ensure sustainable and equitable economic growth. However, the journey continues with fresh challenges and innovative solutions.
This presentation by Chief Economic Adviser, V Anantha Nageswaran will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
