The narrative is that India has made impressive economic and social gains since the 1980s and especially since the 1990s. Achieving annual growth rates of 7% plus for over two decades, India created a fairly large middle class and pulled more people out of poverty than any other country except China.

However, even before the Covid-19 pandemic interrupted growth on a global scale, it had become evident that India needed to address shortcomings and bottlenecks in areas such as governance, infrastructure, land and water utilization, knowledge creation, income distribution, female labour force participation and provision of public goods. With India actively vaccinating its large population, the emerging post-Covid global economy will throw up opportunities and new challenges for the resumption of econ0mic growth.
