Prime Minister Narendra Modi swept to power last year on a pledge to revive India's flagging economic fortunes and provide much-needed jobs for its rapidly growing population of over 1.2 billionPrime Minister Narendra Modi's right-wing government will unveil its first full budget on Saturday, a day after announcing the time was ripe for long-awaited reforms to kickstart the economy. Modi swept to power last year on a pledge to revive India's flagging economic fortunes and provide jobs for its rapidly growing population of over 1.2 billion. On Friday, his government forecast India's growth would exceed eight percent in the next financial year, leaping from around five percent for the past two years and overtaking China to become the world's fastest-growing major economy. This "gives an opportunity to the increasingly young, middle-class and aspirational India to realise its full potential," the government said in a statement on the India Economic Survey, an annual report prepared by the finance ministry.
