Indian opinion divided on India becoming $5 trillion economy by 2024-25: IANS Survey


India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew at a rate of 13.5 per cent in the first quarter of the current financial year (Q1 FY23), according to data released by the National Statistical Office (NSO) of the Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation on August 31.

The GDP growth figures are impressive by any means, although the growth rate has been slower than the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) estimate of 16.2 per cent.

Higher GDP figures indicate a revival of the economy, which has been hit hard by the Covid-induced lockdown and several other developments unfolding globally.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi credited the decisions taken during the pandemic for the high growth rate. Modi has envisioned making India a $5 trillion economy by 2024-25.
