According to a recent report produced by HSBC Holdings Plc, India is expected to take the No.3 spot by the year 2030. The South Asian giant is not a spectator but a competitor in today’s world. Having announced its arrival to the world as No. 6 as of 2017, India’s economy will only see improvements in the times to come.

India is rated highly in the world economic forum India and is recognised as “among the most appealing” gainers in the bank’s long-term rankings, surpassing Germany and Japan to a large extent on account of the economy’s rapid growth.
