  5. 5. History (Pre 1947) • The known Economic history of India begins with the Indus Valley civilization • From 300 B.C. to 1200 A.D. the Maurya Empire united most of the Indian subcontinent. The political unity and military security allowed for a common economic system and enhanced trade and commerce. During this period India is estimated to have had the largest economy of the ancient and medieval world.
  6. 6. History (Post 1947) • India has followed central planning for most of its independent history, which have included extensive public ownership, regulation, red tape, and trade barriers. • After the 1991 economic crisis, the central government launched economic liberalization.

  14. 14. Economic Trends & Issues (3) • Infrastructure – In the past, development of infrastructure was completely in the hands of the public sector and was plagued by slow progress, poor quality and inefficiency. – While 80% of Indian villages have at least an electricity line, just 44% of rural households have access to electricity. Around 40 to 50% of the electricity is stolen, compared with 3% in China. The stolen electricity amounts to 1.5% of GDP.

Economic Trends & Issues (4) • Education – India has made huge progress in terms of increasing primary education attendance rate and expanding literacy to approximately three-fourth of the population. – However, the literacy rate of 74% is still lower than the worldwide average and the country suffers from a high dropout rate.
