The Indian economy has made monumental strides towards growth in every sector. India Inc. is set to scale to a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025 and is expanding the scope of a better life for its citizens in this pursuit.

Even with a global pandemic and uncertainty in the market, reforms for resolving grassroot level problems are taking shape. The New Education Policy (NEP) launched in 2020, improvements in the Passenger Reservation System (PRS) of the Indian Railways, development of an eco-friendly safari park in Haryana and other development projects indicate towards India’s promising future.
