Business and Economy


The Indian economy is the fourth largest economy of the world as measured by purchasing power parity (PPP).
India has a diverse economy. The Indian economy includes agriculture, handicrafts, textile, manufacturing, and a large number of services. Although two-thirds of the Indians still earn their livelihood directly or indirectly through agriculture but the service sector is growing rapidly, playing an important role in the growth of India's economy.

Since the early 1990s, reduction of government control on foreign trade and investment has brought in economic reform giving rise to new global markets for investment. The publicly owned industries have been privatized and various areas of private and foreign interests have come up to the forefront. The upcoming industries and big business houses not only bring financial growth to the country but also help to promote the social, educational and cultural development of the nation.
