India lags BRIC, Pakistan on inclusiveness: WEF survey
DAVOS: India was ranked 62nd among 74 emerging economies on World Economic Forum's Inclusive Development Index, a report released on Monday said.
Although India was ranked lower than Brazil, Russia, China and even Pakistan, it was among the 10 emerging economies with 'advancing' trend. "The 2018 index measures progress of 103 economies on three individual pillars-growth & development, inclusion & inter-generational equity and sustainability. Of the three pillars, India ranks 72nd for inclusion, 66th for growth & development and 44th for inter-generational equity," the report said
While Norway topped the rankings, China was at 26th and Pakistan at 47. Last year, India was ranked 60th among 79 developing economies last year, as against China's 15th and Pakistan's 52nd position.

Indians must be shocked to be behind even Pakistan. Indians may shout ''world fast growing economy'', ''world largest GDP by 20xx'' all those boasts and GARBAGE. Truth is truth. Indians better face it and stop boasting and self-congratulating.

Indian democracy has been subverted to concentrate wealth among a few rich politicians and business leaders and distribute pain and suffering to many hard working ethical citizens. Survey is spot on about the inclusiveness of India. Cheers!
