India has the world’s fastest-growing economy right now, with the GDP growth rate even surpassing China. However, there are many say that what we have is a jobless growth.
There’s a lot of talk about the rising unemployment in India. Is that really the case? Should you be despondent? We think not! There has never been a better time to start a small business in India.
The regular 9 to 5 job is fast becoming a thing of the past in many countries. The new trend is for young people to take matters into their own hands and start their own small business, instead of working as a faceless employ in a large corporation.
