Booming Indian Economy: India The 6th Wealthiest Nation In The World



The Indian Economy is consistently progressing over the years. Both in terms of GDP and PPP, the Indian Economy has made significant progress. The New World Wealth report of 2018 has placed India at the sixth position in the list of wealthiest nations in the world.

With a wealth of USD 8,230 billion, India stands at number 6 behind the United States at the top, China at number 2, and Japan at number 3. The total wealth of a nation taken into account refers to the total wealth privately held by the individuals living in every city of the country. It further takes into account all their assets including cash, business, property and equities and minuses the liabilities. The government funds are not taken into account for the same. The rising Indian economy is thus a result of the rise in individual capacity.

The authors of the New World Wealth report state that the year was a ‘good year’ for all top ten nations in the list owing to strong market gains in the global economy. The report added that the MSCI world index recorded a 23 percent rise while the Dow Jones index was up by 26 percent during the financial year, in terms of US Dollar. The authors further said that the collective wealth held by India, USA, China, Japan, and Australia grew ‘strongly’. The rising Indian economy thus reflects on the consistent measures taken by the nation towards progressing and making a global impact.

The Indian economy is expected to continue to grow and surge at 7.5 percent according to IMF
