Among the developing countries in the world, India marks itself as being one of the fastest growing economies. India, the seventh-largest country in the world, borders the Indian Ocean to the south, the Arabian Sea to the south-west, the Bay of Bengal to the south-east, and shares borders with Pakistan, China, Bhutan, Burma, and Bangladesh. India is recognized by a long history of commercial and cultural wealth. India’s political and economic history has led it to become one of the fastest developing countries in the world. Despite being a newly industrializing nation, India continues to face challenges of over population, poor water and sanitation, and low adult literacy rates. These problems are addressed in this report along with the policy recommendations for India to overcome these challenges.
