This chapter evaluates India's chances of achieving an economic growth rate of more than nine percent under its Eleventh Five-Year Plan. While the Indian economy is going through its most remarkable phase of growth, lack of proper economic infrastructure such as roads, airports, and communication may turn out to be the biggest roadblock in sustaining this growth. This chapter comments on the government's use of public–private partnership (PPP) route for infrastructure creation. It also identifies some areas or sectors such as energy sector, education, business laws, and corporate governance that have the potential to push the economy on either side of the tipping point.

Keywords:   economic growth rate, Eleventh Five-Year Plan, infrastructure, India, public–private partnership, energy sector, education, business laws, corporate governance
