From once being one among poor and backward countries, to the fastest growing economy, India has bagged it all. The time period from 2014- 2022, India will witness the utmost development.

Bagging yet another title, India has been predicted to become the 11th wealthiest nation by 2022 ahead of Switzerland, Hong Kong, Netherlands and Taiwan, as per a report by Boston Consulting Group. During the period upto 2022, India’s wealth has been predicted to grow to a whopping $5 trillion.

Ashish Garg, partner and director at BCG, India, said in the report the UHNWI category witnessed the fastest Rate of Growth in India, with developments in each and every sector. With a little more efforts to put in and the country is ready to go with total development. Wealth distribution remains one of the major hindrances in the country and the gap between the affluent category and those below it are increasing with each passing day.

Apart from the wealth gap, the country also faces several external risks emerging from global trade tensions, widening current account deficit levels, the falling rupee and instability in the stock markets. There is also a fact to be considered that Indian Banking system is under the pressure of Bad loans and suffering to recover from the debt.

However,getting away from the Debt pit will be a little tough. Though, focusing on it should not be tough. A little focus can get better solutions for the Bad loans and help India progress better in the future. A little contribution from every sector adds to this chain of progress and it is a share of each one of us.
