India Can Become a $4-5t Economy

Stating its great time to invest in India, Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha Friday said the Indian economy has potential to become a $4-5 trillion economy in the next 10-12 years.
“You might not find a better opportunity to create wealth. It’s great time to invest in India...We are going to take India’s $2 trillion economy to $4-5 trillion economy in the next 10-12 years,” Sinha said at an event organized by the Indian Private and Venture Capital Association (IVCA) in New Delhi, PTI reported.
Sinha, who was Managing Director of Omidyar Network India Advisors, said the rupee has strong tailwinds with firm capital inflows and its great time for investing in the country.
He also assured foreign investors that tax issues will be addressed appropriately in the next budget and India was committed to welcoming foreign investment.
The minister further said the government wants to develop Mumbai as a major international finance center.
“Why can’t India become a international financial centre like Singapore and London? We want to make Mumbai an international financial center,” he said.
Emphasizing that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government’s core economic philosophy is empowerment, not entitlement, Sinha said that 99.74 percent of Indian households have bank accounts now.
