Vision 2047 - 100 Years of Indian Independence

India will celebrate its 75 years of freedom on 15th August 2022, and by 2047 it will be a 'Century of Independence for India.'

Our country has made remarkable progress since independence. However, the transition since 1947 in terms of economic growth, education, employment, urbanization, and development reflects the rural vs. urban India scenario. The 'Vision 2047' attempts to foresight the country's growth story for the next 25 years.

Vision India @ 2047

What is India's vision 2047?  Why vision 2047? What is the future of India in 2047?

India can be among the top three economies in the world in 2047, 25 years from now. India is gearing up to cross the 'middle-income trap' and evolve into a modern, industrialized nation.

The pandemic situation had slowed down the economic growth; hence necessary steps were taken. So vision India@2047 is a resolution by the Narendra Modi government. The vision focuses on: attaining higher prosperity, making the best facilities available in rural and urban areas of the country, getting rid of unnecessary Governmental interferences in civilians' lives, and promoting urbanization in India.

Our nation's youth is boosting our development. Their contribution to Modern India of 2047 is important. Also, our scientists, entrepreneurs, social organizations, and women play crucial roles in the newer developments. India can be a global power soon with such a fast-paced progression.

 

Will India become a superpower by 2047?

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's initiatives, policies, schemes, and programs during the last eight years have given birth to the dawn of a new era. The AatmaNirbhar Bharat Abhiyan has helped India become a self-reliant nation. We expect the 'Modern India of our dreams in 2047' to be mostly free from foreign dependence.

Amrit Kaal- The Proposition for the Next 25 Years

The journey from 2022 till 2047 is being referred to as the 'Amrit Kaal,' a term primarily coined by PM Narendra Modi. Amrit Kaal is the period to attain the resolutions for 'AatmaNirbhar Bharat.' Therefore, the action plan for the next 25 years shall focus solely on the vision for India in 2047.

Vision India@2047 is an attempt to improve sustainable urban development and act as a catalyst for the growth of Urban India in the next 25 years.

Which sectors are booming in India, and what shall be our goals for the next 25 years?

According to the Asian Development Bank, the Indian economy is expected to grow by 7.5% in FY2022 and 8% by FY2023. As a result, investors are aggressively investing capital in the growing industries of India. 

The following sectors are likely to provide excellent returns to investors in the future:

  • Healthcare & Insurance
  • Renewable energy
  • IT
  • Real Estate
  • FMCG
  • Automobile

Prioritizing growing sectors will prove to be the hallmark of development. The sectors that can flourish are agriculture, commerce & industry, education and employment, gaming, health care, infrastructure, urban landscape, security & defense, technology, governance, aerospace, and e-commerce.

1. India's Agricultural Sector

 The "New Age Agriculture" project will help Indian farmers with higher agricultural production as the Indian population is rising.

The project proposes micro-irrigation and organic farming.

Drones, weather forecasting, and automated farming machinery will be the future of modern farming.

AI-powered planting, weeding, and automated irrigation and harvesting are a few of the latest examples of agricultural technology. AI is also used to survey and analyze soil, predict the best suitable environment for the crop, and create a social platform for farmers to engage in digital agriculture.

 

2. Indian Defense Sector

 India will manufacture most of its arms and ammunition in the nation itself and end the foreign dependency.

We need to be ready for the challenges surrounding India by unpredictable neighbors or unfavorable global alliances. However, getting self-reliant in ammunition acquisition shall be a significant challenge.

 

3. Indian Infrastructural Development

The action plan for future-ready cities' development till 2047 will be crucial.

The development of urban infrastructure and sustainable urban spaces is important. It helps to ensure access to the best facilities in rural areas.

Building 'future-ready cities' will help cities get more innovative and environmentally friendly in the next 25 years.

 

​4. Indian Education System

 Re-imagining education in India at 100; it will be more innovative.

The futuristic education system will attain new heights of prosperity and enhance the education system in the villages as well.

New Indian Ed-tech startups are getting wholesome investments since 2021, and India stands 2nd in terms of e-learning after the US. The E-learning & M-learning techniques will help students for a rich educational experience from anywhere in the world. 

 

​5. Indian Gaming Industry

India's gaming ecosystem will become one of the world's leading markets for the gaming industry.

The Indian gaming industry is growing rapidly. Newer games are coming up with interesting genres. With the vast internet services, a growing younger population, and an increasing number of mobile phones, the gaming industry is predicted to remain in the limelight.

The covid-19 pandemic lockdowns in 2020 saw a sharp growth of online gaming in India. There has been a nearly 38% increase in the Indian gaming sector, with over 400 gaming companies. India is home to more than 420 million online gamers.

 

6. Indian Healthcare Sector

India has the potential to become a healthcare giant by 2047.

Covid-19 has created huge setbacks globally. However, according to the Press Information Bureau, India has supplied a whopping number of 188.55 Crore vaccine doses to its States/UTs (Apr 2022). Since then, healthcare and drug innovation have come into the limelight.

The Ayushman Bharat campaign will digitize medical records, automate processes, acquire data analytics and implement AI/IOT. With this, one can enhance personalized care and patient experiences. Robotic process automation (RPA) will boom by automating rule-based tasks and cognitive-based abilities.

 

7. India's Employment Scenario

India could be a $40 trillion economy by 2047 with the highest working-age population.

According to the CII reports, India has the highest working-age population present. The flourishing Indian startups, aggressive urbanization, and the 'Make in India' concept have resulted in numerous job opportunities for Indians.

An exemplary impact on the Indian toys sector has been witnessed, where the toy imports dropped to 70% while the exports surged to 61% under the Make-in-India campaign. 

 

8. Indian Defence & Aerospace Sector

Indian Defence and Aerospace sector to reach 5 lakh crore by 2047.

Rajnath Singh, Union Defence Minister, Govt of India, mentioned that the Indian defense and aerospace sector is likely to become Rs 5 lakh crore by the year 2047 from the current size of 85,000 crores. India will focus on manufacturing defense equipment and platforms within the nation itself.

The Defence Excellence (iDEX) innovation includes technologies such as military security systems, secure hardware encryption devices, unmanned surface and underwater vehicles, 4G/LTE strategic local area networks, radar, and artificial intelligence-based image analysis satellites, etc. Sounds cool, right?

 

9. Indian E-commerce Industry

Indian e-commerce industry may take a huge leap of US$100 billion by 2047.

India is about to become the second largest E-commerce market in the world by 2034. The nation will also surpass the US eventually. Innovations like digital payments, hyper-local logistics (location-based logistics), analytics-driven customer engagement, and digital advertisements will likely support the growth in the sector.

Heavy mobile phone usage and internet availability have made e-commerce the preferred choice for most Indian companies and consumers. Will this lead to the winding up of micro, small and medium enterprises? Time will tell.

 

10. Electric Vehicles

We might see fully electric mobility in India by 2047.

People are shifting to EVs due to the increasing prices of petrol and diesel. For the 'Zero-emission' 2070 dream, the nation has its funds focused on electric mobility. However, a fully-electric ecosystem in India has a few hurdles: high cost, inadequate infrastructure, etc.

 

11. Indian Metro Projects

100 prime Indian cities will have their metro networks by 2047.

Several metro projects have successfully been deployed, and others are in the pipeline. The Current length of the metro networks in India stands at more than 500 km, and is expected to be almost 5000 km long by the 100th year of Independence.

India’s Metro network is the fifth-largest globally, operating in cities such as Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Jaipur, Gurugram, Noida, Lucknow, etc.

India has its first-ever water-metro project in Kochi, and the same will be introduced in other coastal cities by 2047.

The Kochi Water Metro project provides water connectivity to people living between islands in the heart of the area and the suburbs. The new boats will provide the same transportation experience as the Metro, and are called as ‘Water Metros’.

Low-cost mobility solutions in India:

Metro-Neo is the solution for tier-2/3 cities in India

It's a joint trolley bus system with overhead electric traction. This bus shall have air-conditioned coaches, automatic door closures, electronic displays, and much more.

It will be first implemented in Nashik city in Maharashtra by the Nagpur Metro Rail Project. 

Smaller cities in India will have Metrolite project; the Light Urban Rail Transit System

Metrolite is positioned as a convenient, affordable, safe, and punctual mobility system. Delhi metro has initiated India's first Metrolite project. This type of transit can help in reducing pollution and be convenient for mass traveling.

 

12. Indian Sports Industry

India will stand among the top five countries in terms of sports by 2047.

India is rapidly building sports infrastructure, sports science centers, community coaching facilities, etc. Also, the country is arranging international-level coaches and organizing annual sports events. Apart from Cricket, India will rise and shine in other sports as well.

Mumbai, Maharashtra is hosting 139th IOC (International Olympic Committee) session in 2023. Isn't it a proud moment for India?

 

​13. Future Technology Needs for India @ 2047

India can become No.1 techno-savvy country in the coming 25 years.

Technology has become the new catalyst for boosting advancements of all sorts. Emerging technologies like blockchain, cybersecurity, behavioral analytics, AI, VR, AR, and NFTs (Non-fungible tokens) are making waves in India.

More than 50% of the process can be automated and handled by robots. Accurate weather predictions, new-age agriculture, risk mitigation, and much more could be possible.

 

14. Indian Energy Sector to Flourish by 2047

India to become an energy-independent nation by 2047.

PM Modi has a clear goal to transform India into an energy-independent nation by 2047. Energy imports sum up to Rs.12,000 Cr a year, which isn't affordable. India aims to cut imports of crude oil and natural gas by 2030.

Rajasthan is the first-ever Indian state to have a 10 giga-watt massive solar energy reuse system. India will host the world's largest solar and wind parks by 2047. 'Green-hydrogen' will be an alternative fuel to tackle climatic changes.
