  1. 1. INTRODUCTION 15TH AUGEST, 1947 Is a red letter day in the history of india. India attained independence on this day. After the attainment of independence , india made progress in economic, social cultural , educational , technological , and political fields and solved many problems. But many problems like poverty , unemployment and inflation etc are yet to be solved. Economy means a major framework in which all the economics activites of a country are explained . Indian economy is a mixed economy

  7. 7. Daily Life About 7 out of 10 Indians live in villages and farm for a living. Houses belonging to more prosperous families in a village are made of better materials than those of poorer villagers, most of which include only a charpoy, or wooden bed frame with knotted string in place of a mattress. For religious and economic reasons, Indians follow a mostly vegetarian diet, and most Indians eat some form of rice every day. 2

  13. 13. Indians in the USA. Of the 1.5M Indians living in the USA, 1/5th of them live in the Silicon Valley. 35% of Silicon Valley start-ups are by Indians. Indian students are the largest in number among foreign students in USA. Statistics that show: 38% of doctors in the USA, 12% of scientists in the USA, 36% of NASA scientists, 34% of Microsoft employees, 28% of IBM employees, 17% of INTEL scientists, 13% of XEROX employees, are Indians. 1.

  16. 16. Clothing requirement &The right to education Calculating the basic need of clothing is difficult, as requirements vary considerably according to region, gender, age and culture. We calculated the minimum amount of cloth required and its cost for persons by age and gender living in the plains. The weighted average of the total costs came to Rs 207 per annum on clothing. About 71.16% of the people in the 15-19 year age group had not completed a secondary education(1999-00)*. It should be the minimum responsibility of the State to ensure that each young citizen has access to cost-free schooling with adequate infrastructure and qualified teachers. Moreover, such an institution should lie within a 2 km radius of each persons home so as to ensure not more than 30 minutes are spent walking to school.

  28. 28. 1. Inflation Fuelled by rising wages, property prices and food prices inflation in India is an increasing problem. Inflation is currently between 8-10%. This inflation has been a problem despite periods of economic slowdown. For example in late 2013, Indian inflation reached 11%, despite growth falling to 4.8%. This suggests that inflation is not just due to excess demand, but is also related to cost push inflationary factors. For example, supply constraints in agriculture have caused rising food prices. This causes inflation and is also a major factor reducing living standards of the poor who are sensitive to food prices. The Central Bank of India have made reducing inflation a top priority and have been willing to raise interest rates, but cost push inflation is more difficult to solve and it may cause a fall in growth as they try to reduce inflation.
  29. 29. 2.Poor educational standards Although India has benefited from a high % of English speakers. (important for call centre industry) there is still high levels of illiteracy amongst the population. It is worse in rural areas and amongst women. Over 50% of Indian women are illiterate. This limits economic development and a more skilled workforce.
  30. 30. IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton IIT = Harvard + MIT + Princeton , says CBS 60 Minutes. CBS' highly-regarded 60 Minutes, the most widely watched news programme in the US, told its audience of more than 10 Million viewers that IIT may be the most important university you've never heard of." "The United States imports oil from Saudi Arabia, cars from Japan, TVs from Korea and Whiskey from Scotland. So what do we import from India? We import people, really smart people," co-host Leslie Stahl began while introducing the segment on IIT. the smartest, the most successful, most influential Indians who've migrated to the US seem to share a common credential: They are graduates of the IIT. in science and technology, IIT undergraduates leave their American counterparts in the dust. Think about that for a minute: A kid from India using an Ivy League university as a safety school. That's how smart these guys are. There are cases where students who couldn't get into computer science at IIT, they have gotten scholarships at MIT, at Princeton, at Caltech.
  31. 31. Brain Drain Young talent leaving India seems to be slowing down. Average starting salary for an IT engineer in India today is approximately $10-12,000. Many are graduates of the Indian Institute of Technology Several campuses located throughout the country This salary provides a comfortable lifestyle in modern India for the privileged few.
  32. 32. 3. Poor Infrastructure Many Indians lack basic amenities lack access to running water. Indian public services are creaking under the strain of bureaucracy and inefficiency. Over 40% of Indian fruit rots before it reaches the market; this is one example of the supply constraints and inefficiencys facing the Indian economy.
  33. 33. 4.Balance of Payments deterioration. Although India has built up large amounts of foreign currency reserves the high rates of economic growth have been at the cost of a persistent current account deficit. In late 2012, the current account reached a peak of 6% of GDP. Since then there has been an improvement in the current account. But, the Indian economy has seen imports growth faster than exports. This means India needs to attract capital flows to finance the deficit. Also, the large deficit caused the depreciation in the Rupee between 2012 and 2014. Whilst the deficit remains, there is always the fear of a further devaluation in the Rupee. There is a need to rebalance the economy and improve competitiveness of exports.
  34. 34. 5. High levels of private debt Buoyed by a property boom the amount of lending in India has grown by 30% in the past year. However there are concerns about the risk of such loans. If they are dependent on rising property prices it could be problematic. Furthermore if inflation increases further it may force the RBI to increase interest rates. If interest rates rise substantially it will leave those indebted facing rising interest payments and potentially reducing consumer spending in the future
  35. 35. 6.Inequality has risen rather than decreased. It is hoped that economic growth would help drag the Indian poor above the poverty line. However so far economic growth has been highly uneven benefiting the skilled and wealthy disproportionately. Many of Indias rural poor are yet to receive any tangible benefit from the Indias economic growth. More than 78 million homes do not have electricity. 33% (268million) of the population live on less than $1 per day. Furthermore with the spread of television in Indian villages the poor are increasingly aware of the disparity between rich and poor. (3)
  36. 36. 7. Large Budget Deficit India has one of the largest budget deficits in the developing world. Excluding subsidies it amounts to nearly 8% of GDP. Although it is fallen a little in the past year. It still allows little scope for increasing investment in public services like health and education.
  37. 37. 8. Rigid labour Laws As an example Firms employing more than 100 people cannot fire workers without government permission. The effect of this is to discourage firms from expanding to over 100 people. It also discourages foreign investment. Trades Unions have an important political power base and governments often shy away from tackling potentially politically sensitive labour laws.
  38. 38. 9.Inefficient agriculture Agriculture produces 17.4% of economic output but, over 51% of the work force are employed in agriculture. This is the most inefficient sector of the economy and reform has proved slow.
  39. 39. SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE IN INDIA A HOPE OR HYPE ??? 1990s 2000 Poor 320 260 % Population 36 19 0 20 40 60 South West East North Central 1999-00 1983-84 % of population below poverty line Poverty in India Millions of poor, malnourished and food insecure population cannot be the foot soldiers fighting the cause of sustainable agriculture (in Million) Strategy: Combating poverty Empowering people Using core competence in science & technology including space applications Setting ecological integrity Who will feed India ? small and marginal farmers (FAO/RAP- 2001) Poverty- geographical profile
  40. 40. 10. Slowdown in growth 2013/14 has seen a slowdown in the rate of economic growth to 4-5%. Real GDP per capita growth is even lower. This is a cause for concern as India needs a high growth rate to see rising living standards, lower unemployment and encouraging investment. India has fallen behind China, which is a comparable developing economy
  41. 41. Definition of Inflation Inflation can be defined as the rise in overall price level in the economy, i.e. rise in prices of all the goods and services. When prices rise, it erodes the purchasing power of money. Inflation is a situation in which there is a persistent and appreciable increase in general level of prices.
  42. 42. Causes of Inflation 1. Cost push inflation. 2. Rising imported raw materials costs. 3. Rising labor costs. 4. Higher indirect taxes imposed by the government. 5. Demand pull inflation.
  43. 43. Effect of Inflation
  45. 45. Recession in developed economies like US made big institutions to pull out their money from India Institutional investors investing in India are directly impacted by the global market uncertainty. In 2008 India had a net outflow of $14billion of FIIs and INR drastically. A volatile currency is never good for a foreign investor as it increases the transaction risk. Though RBI has intervened through open market operations to arrest the downfall of INR (managed float) but the reserves of $290billion dont provide enough room to make a significant impact.
  46. 46. Default concerns of European nations has resulted in loss of confidence in the Euro and appreciation of dollar Owing to uncertainty prevailing in Europe and slump in international market, investors prefer to stay away from risky investments. This has significantly affected the portfolio investment in India. Credit rating agencys downgrade of India to BBB- has not helped the cause. Any outward flow of currency or decrease in investment will put a downward pressure on exchange rate.
  47. 47. Trade deficit has widened by 40,000 crores in the last quarter. This has resulted in increased imports and spike in dollar demand
  48. 48. Expecting current account deficit to settle at 3.0-3.1% of GDP by March 2012
  49. 49. IMPACT OF RUPEE DEPRECIATION Economic recovery will get delayed as... The Reserve Bank of India will not be able to cut rates for fear of causing more outflow.. Weaker rupee will make capital imports expensive, forcing companies to delay investments.. Impact on inflation and higher fuel prices will affect consumer sentiment.. Foreign investors will postpone investments till things stabilise

  51. 51. [Environ]mental Impacts Pollution increase in cars and emission of greenhouse gases into atmosphere Deforestation increase in paved areas to house increasing population Freshwater Availability increase in waste production and contamination of water Natural Resources increase burning of fossil fuels, excessive use of coal Global Warming overall increase in temperature and chances of natural disasters Habitat Loss change in ecosystems affecting trophic levels
  52. 52. However, we also know that 80% of India does not have access to public health facilities. (Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss, Minister for Health and Family Welfare) 47% of Indian children under the age of 5 years are undernourished. (Human Development Report 2005, UNDP) 71% of the children in 15-19 age group have not completed a secondary education, their fundamental right.(National Sample Survey on Education, 1999-00, NSSO) 57% of India does not have access to electricity. (World Development Indicators 2005, World Bank) 70% of India does not have access to a suitable toilet. (National Sample Survey on Housing, 2004, NSSO) 49% of India does not have proper shelter. (National Sample Survey on Housing, 2004, NSSO) 38% of India does not have access to a nearby water source. (National Family Health Survey, 1998-99, IIPS)
  53. 53. CONCLUSION Hence, poverty, unemployment and inflation are the three major issues facing Indian economy. The main cause of all these issues are population explosion. In order to remove these problems we have to take care of educated society .
