Many automotive companies are investing for their new plants and for capacity building of their old plant. Indian and foreign both companies started building and expanding their capacities.

But Automotive industry sector has shown a negative slide down in last quarter. It shows minus 2.4% slide.

Interest Rate Cuts Down by RBI
To take the growth forward RBI has cut the interest rate down in January by 500 points basis. Interest rate was come down by 0.5%. If GDP grows with this rate, it is expected that RBI will go for more cut in interest so that industries can take easy loans in less interest rate. Ultimately that will trigger the growth more.
India & China | GDP Growth Rate in the Last quarter (Jan-March)
India is growing with the expected rate. Though IMF predicted that India would grow at 6.6% in the first quarter. But beating the prediction, India sets a record and touches 7.5%! What a performance! China is also growing but not this rate. For the first time in last few years India has beaten China in growth in a particular quarter.

India’s New Economic Challenges- Growth and Sustainability
Experts are very cautious before making any comment on this topic- India’s economic boom in the first quarter of this year, 2015. Because before a year China experienced the same thing. Their economy was growing leaps and bounds, even was growing at the fastest rate in the world. Then what happened, everyone knows it. False demand bubbles burst and China’s economy entered in a dark chapter. Many ghost cities were popping out. Some cities which were built to flow down the pressure of from a mega city, went deserted. Bubbles in Construction sector also burst away.
India’s new challenge is to sustain the growth and fueling the growing sectors. That’s why recently India has changed labour laws and some other industrial laws to ease the procedure of getting investment.
India’s Growing Economy- What to do else to sustain the growth
India’s biggest Challenge will come in front. That is to sustain the growth and retain the positive curve of the GDP’s growing character. What India will do retain the growth, we can make some assumptions-
1. Government will slash the tax burden down from some sectors.
2. Government of India will encourage Eco friendly industries by eloping some taxes.
3. For PPP (Private Public Partnership) venture, government should assure the returns and will take necessary actions to make those ventures profitable.
Narendra Modi & Indian Economy
It was in their agenda before the 16th parliament election in India that they would concentrate on strengthening the economy of India. To meet the expectation and huge pressure from the growing yuva (young) population, government is heading up for rapid industrialization in all sector. For triggering up the industrialization RBI has already lowered the rate of interest two times within three months.
Modi’s Foreign Visit in search of New Investments
Narendra Modi’s government has taken some visionary steps to market the potentials of India as manufacturing hub of the world. Whenever he visited any country, he always emphasizes to manufacturing facility of India. To strike the point, government of India is marketing the “Make in India” initiatives in European countries to fetch the investments from there also. Recently He visited China and arranged a grand meeting with the top notch industrialists there that includes Jack Ma, chairman of Alibaba and President of Xiaomi Inc. Alibaba is trying to get into the sub continent’s market where Xiaomi has done incredible job with their entry level smartphone in India. They hit the exact point of need of Indian consumers- Price and features.
Rise Asia, Make in India and Indian Economy
Almost all economies in Asia are showing positive growth in the last quarter. Japan, China and India are leading on the top. Capitalizing the power of employable youth generation and availability of raw material, India can surge up easily and can not only retain the economic growth of 7.5% but also can reach 9% in a year. Stability of the central government and relation with the states will play a big role there. Prime minister Modi arranges meeting with the chief ministers of the states in every two months to analyze the over all growth of economy and other issues. This is an important step to neutralize the political issues over economic development of country. With the Make in india planning, Central government has already asked reports on land, infrastructure availability etc from the states to chalk out the whole plan for positioning the upcoming industries.
