9.2 An Overview of Industrialization of the Indian Economy

The Indian economy underwent important structural transformation over the past five decades. The share of agriculture in GDP declined drastically from as high as 56.7% in 1960 to 14.4% in 2018 (Fig. 9.1). The shares of services and industry were almost the same in 1960, of around 22%. However, by 2018, the share of the services sector increased to 54% and that of industry increased to 31.6%. It is important to mention here that the industry includes manufacturing, mining, and construction.
