Since 1947, India has achieved remarkable progress in raising growth, income levels and standards of living. India’s economy has experienced tremendous growth in urban industries such as services and information technology. The economic growth has been driven by the expansion of the services that have been growing consistently faster than other sectors. The emergence of a dynamic indigenous entrepreneurial class and a progressive spread of industries away from their traditional locations are also noteworthy features of the post-Independence industrial transformation. The agriculture sector in India is expected to create better energy in the next few years due to increased investment in agricultural infrastructure such as irrigation facilities, warehousing and cold storage. However, around 600 million Indians continue to live in poverty 2020. India has to go for a transmission in promoting employment opportunities, controlling poverty, population and other basic economic problems to make India, a hunger free nation.
Globally, experts viewed about New Normal, Paradigm Shift, Creative Destruction, VUCA 2.0 will predict a big change between before and after COVID. E-Commerce (Amazon, Reliance), Productivity (Microsoft) have increased the market capitalization by more than $ 100 million during COVID. This is a true example for Opportunity Amidst Adversity. Cyber Physical System is one example of technology making an impact in Economy. IoT in agriculture will enhance the productivity and identify plant diseases. But transformation in government policies and welfare measures alone will promote Indian as a hunger free nation.
