India needs 9% GDP growth for 5 years to become USD 5 tln economy by FY29: D Subbarao

Former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor D Subbarao is of the view that India can become a USD five trillion economy by 2028-29 only if it clocks an annual GDP growth of nine per cent consistently for the next five years. According to him, there are eight key challenges for India to overcome to become USD 5 trillion economy. These include increasing investment, improving productivity and education and health outcomes, creating jobs, raising agriculture productivity, maintaining macroeconomic stability, managing global mega trends and improving governance. Subbarao cautioned that the states must be cautious and selective on what freebies to be given from borrowed money to prevent unnecessary debt burden.
