  • Agriculture sector saw consistent decline, the issue has worsened to such an extent that thousands of farmer had committed suicide.
  • The economy experienced premature deindustrialization.
  • Service sector save most growth, but after two sectors failed.
  • ‘Trickle down’ theory didn’t work, inequality is still high.
  • Informalization has increased.
  • Unorganized sector is quite prominent.
  • Opening our markets to outside world caused economic invasion by China.
  • In WTO India is being pressurized by developed nations to reign in agricultural subsidies.
