Between 2002-03 and 2006-07, Indian economy grew
annually at 8.7% led by the services sector at 9% per year. In 1990, India’s
share of services, at 40% of GDP was consistent with its per capita income for
low-income country. By 2001, its share of one-half of the GDP was higher by
five percentage points, compared to the average for low-income countries. Economic
reforms that energized the private corporate sector, and technological changes
that opened up new vistas in telecommunications, IT and outsourcing are
