India 2020 is about to become a reality. Are we ready?

In 1998, Dr. Kalam and Y. S. Rajan published the now iconic India 2020, a vision document for the new millennium that charted how India could become one of the top five economic powers in the world by 2020. Sixteen years later, as the year 2020 approaches, it is time to take stock of how much India has achieved and what lies ahead.

In many ways, Indias growth story in the twenty - first century has been hamstrung by missed opportunities and slowdowns in project execution, but it has also been marked by new opportunities and emerging technologies that make faster and more inclusive growth viable. A renewed policy focus is now needed for agriculture, manufacturing, mining, the chemicals industry, health care and infrastructure to invigorate these sectors and boost economic growth, argue Kalam and Rajan. Alongside, education, job creation, emerging technologies, biodiversity, waste management, national security and the knowledge economy are some of the other vital areas that we need to build on as we look beyond 2020.

India can still make it to the list of developed nations in a decade. Beyond 2020 provides an action plan for that transformation.
