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.
