Despite Covid waves, India one of fastest-growing economies: Rijiju

Rijiju said this while addressing a seminar on ‘Environment and Sustainable Development – Role of Judiciary’ and ‘Digitisation of Indian Judiciary – its Impact in Dispensation of Justice’, organised by the Gauhati High Court.

The minister, however, said the per capita GDP in India is still poor “when we compare it to the developed nations”.

“Today, the per capita GDP of India is $2,100. Though it is very less, when we calculate India as a whole it is close to a 3.23 trillion-dollar economy and it is the fifth largest economy in the world.”

The event was also attended by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, senior Supreme Court and High Court judges.

The Union Minister further said: “International standard of development for middle-level countries is a per capita income of $12,000 and we have to reach that position before attaining developed status.”

“But, rising from $2,100 to $12,000 can impact the environment,” cautioned the Minister.

Rijiju expressed his confidence that the role of the judiciary is going to be extremely crucial in the growth and development of India.

The seminar was jointly organised by the Gauhati High Court and the Assam government.
