The criteria for deciding the wealthiest country is to be known. In India, wealth is lying with few families and there are many poor people. The gap between the poor and the rich is very high. So if you count the overall wealth may be very high. But poor people will be always taking loans only. The government has to take care of the well being of the people, increase the infrastructure and see that wealth is created so that all the people will have self-sufficiency. But this is not happening. The requirement of money for the government is more. But the realisation is less in the form of taxes. So the government is borrowing money from the other countries and world bank.
