This shows that the Services Sector in India accounts for over half of the country0s GDP. The Reasons #or the $rowth o# the Services Sector contri !tion to the India GDP The contribution of the Services Sector has increased very rapidly in the India GDP for many foreign consumers have shown interest in the country0s service e4ports. This is due to the fact that India has a large pool of highly s-illed/ low cost/ and educated wor-ers in the country. This has made sure that the services that are available in the country are of the best 5uality. The foreign companies seeing this have started outsourcing their wor- to India specially in the area of business services which includes business process outsourcing and information technology services. This has given a major boost to the Services Sector in India/ which in its turn has made the sector contribute more to the India GDP. The Services Sector in India m!st e $iven oost Services Sector Growth Rate in India GDP registered a significant growth over the past few years. The Indian government must ta-e steps in order to ensure that Services Sector Growth Rate in India GDP continues to rise. 3or this will ensure the growth and prosperity of the country0s economy. The current situation in India is that the growth rate of services has overta-en both agriculture and industry and is now more than 1&$ of GDP. The services sector has the highest growth rate and is the least volatile sector. Growth is particularly mar-ed in public services/ IT and financial services. In some areas the growth rate of the services sector is #&(1&$ due to increased use of mobile technologies. India therefore has a services(oriented economy. It hasn6t followed traditional growth models as in 7hina! in that it has s-ipped the manufacturing stage and has jumped straight from the agricultural stage to services. Growth in the services sector will support growth in the agricultural and industrial sectors/ although growth in manufacturing/ which causes pollution is not so desirable in terms of job creation and increased prosperity. 8s India6s population grows so too does the number of dependents in the lower and higher age groups. 3or the economy to grow it has to invest. 7urrently the public sector invests more than it saves. The household sector saves in surplus/ but this is not increasing so it cannot continue to support private and public sectors. There is a massive need to spend on health and education/ particularly the education of women/ in order to reduce the birth rate. In South India the number of women in the population outnumbers men/ so the development of the south of India will depend on the education of women.

.&s! it will be important for India to absorb the growing labour force if the services sector is to play an important role. India is in a strong position to do this since it has a history of using :nglish for communication/ which in turn supports global trade and finance. This is happening with growth in human s-ills intensive sectors such as hotels / restaurants and IT/ but there are geographical/ labour unions and human s-ills restrictions on labour movement. Improvements in agriculture are not having an effect on poverty. To address poverty there is a need to move people from bad sectors to good sectors or from unemployment to employment.In the ne4t two decades a 9growth window6 for India which may not come again because the wor-ing population to total population ratio increases up to mid %&. .nly the services sector can have a major impact on poverty.
