GDP List World Bank 2019

“In 2017, the rupee appreciated against the dollar, and in 2018, it depreciated against the dollar. So, the change in position in global GDP list is largely due to fluctuations in currencies. India will again retain the 5th position if the growth picks up.” said, Devendra Pant, chief economist at India Ratings and research.

Despite losing 2 points on the list, India remains the fastest growing major economy in the world. India is speculated to grow at 7% this fiscal year and China is expected to slow down owing to the ongoing trade war with United States on tariffs.

After the Modi government came in power again in May this year, the newly elected Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman spoke in detail about the government’s ambition to achieve the $5 trillion mark before 2024. To achieve the goal of $5 Trillion economy, India will need to have 8% growth rate till 2024.
