Between 2002-03 and 2006-07, Indian economy grew annually at 8.7% led by the services sector at 9% per year. In 1990, India's share of services, at 40% of GDP was consistent with its per capita income for low-income country. By 2001, its share of one half of the GDP was higher by five per^ centage points, compared to the average for low income countries. Economic reforms that energised the private corporate sector, and technological changes that opened up new vistas in telecommunications, IT and outsourcing are believed to be responsible for the impressive performance. However, the services led growth remains a puzzle at a low per capita income, with 55% of the work force still engaged In agriculture, and when agriculture decelerated and industry stagnated-defying a styled fact in economics.

India has now emerged as a high per capita income country.
