The country has gradually become the world’s sixth-largest economy in terms of nominal GDP and the third-largest in purchasing power parity.

Of course, there could be pitfalls on the way in this, an election year. India could easily spook investors if, say, the Modi government were to raid RBI’s reserves now that Urjit Patel – its ‘inconvenient’ governor – is out of the way; or if elections were to lead to its replacement by an impossibly ‘khichdi’ government.
