ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the failure of India to grow at 10 percent despite agricultural reform, less corruption and an overhaul of the tax system. According to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, the economy is in good shape and they will have a growth rate of 8.5 percent. In an environment with corruption and high inflation, the economy is expected to grow at least 8 percent in 2010-2011. Bajaj Auto chairman Rahul Bajaj believes that agriculture must grow at least 4 percent per year in order for India to grow.
