Really Acche Din:::Other Side of Coin

No narrative, only facts:

Gross Fixed Capital Formation:
13-14 : 31.4%
16-17 : 26.7%
(Down by 470bps)

IIP for consumer durables:
May’14 : 11%
March’17 : -0.8
(Down by 1180bps)

Consequently 18months of negative growth since 2014.

1.35lacs in 2015, lowest in past few years. (We need at least 10lacs job creation per month)

Train accidents:
Accident per million train KM up from 0.12 to 0.14 since2014.

Rape conviction rate has decreased from 49% to 29% since 2014.

Agriculture growth rate down from 3.3%( 11th FYP) to 1.7( avg) during first 3 years of NDA rule.

Farmers suicide up by 42% since 2014.

Out of more than 6 Lacs villages only 18K+ villages were unelectrified. Means 99.97% villages were electrified since Independence.

Direct tax is up by 10% while Indirect tax is up by 22%….means current regime is charging more to poor people than rich or super rich.

A logical Inference can be made that income Inequality may have risen during current regime.

There is no Lokpal in first 3 years of NDA. So, we need to wait for comments on scam!


But Still Facts are Facts…


Now you decide, are these acche din or not.


PS Note:- I have mentioned here whatever facts and figures were available with me,/statistics with govt data, which has nothing to do with my personal understanding.
