    Three important targets on poverty, slums and water have been met three years ahead of 2015, says this year’s Report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

  • UN RC Annual Report

    The Indian economy continued to make a strong recovery in 2010, almost returning to pre economic crisis levels, achieving an estimated real GDP growth rate of 8.9% in the first half of the fiscal year 2010-2011. Inflation, however, has been a matter of concern and remained in double digits for the most part of the year. The effects of the financial crisis have been weathered by India through cautious banking policies, low dependence on exports and large domestic demand.
