Fifty Ways To Make India A Developed Country And A World Super Power


The following article talks about the various measures which if adopted by Indian government can make India not only a developed country but a world super power. India has the potential of becoming a super power & it can become so if the following fifty steps are taken by the Indian government.

India is a rapidly developing country but at the same time it is facing lot of problems both internally & externally & India can become a developed country & a world Super Power only if these problems are eradicated. Following are some of the ways which can make India a developed country & a super power –

1) By controlling rapidly increasing population



Rapidly increasing population is the biggest menace which India is facing currently as over population is the root cause of most of the problems like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, pollution, crime etc. India is the second most populated country of the world after China & unless India takes some effective steps to check population India can’t become a super power as it is the biggest hindrance in the progress of country.

2) By eradicating poverty



In India still millions of people live below the poverty line & as long as there is poverty in a country it can’t become a developed country. So Indian government must take some serious steps to eradicate poverty from the country so as to make it a super power.

3) By increasing literacy rate



Illiteracy also acts as a hindrance in the development of a country as an illiterate person can’t contribute in any way in the progress of a country. So illiteracy should be eradicated from the country by providing free & compulsory education to children as well as to uneducated adults.

4) By checking unemployment



Unless problem of unemployment is addressed by creating more employment opportunities for the people India can’t become a super power because unemployment means lot of human resources of the country remain under utilized or unutilized which could have been used for the progress of the country.

5) By eliminating pollution



Pollution is also an impediment in the progress of a country whether its air, water, noise or radioactive pollution since pollution affects the competence of an individual through various forms of illnesses like headache, high or low blood pressure, asthma etc. & an unfit person can’t contribute effectively to the progress of a country.

6) By checking the crime rate



A peaceful country can progress much more than a country with a high crime rate. So, efforts should be made by the Indian government to check the crime rate in the country by making some effective laws & equally effective implementation of those laws so as to make India a super power.

7) By adopting zero tolerance against corruption



Corruption is also a big obstacle in the development of a country as it badly affects the economy of a country. Corruption is rampant in India & India is placed 87th in the international corruption index. So, unless corruption is eliminated from India by adopting zero tolerance approach towards corruption & by making some effective laws India can’t become a super power.

8) By bringing back the black money stashed abroad



Thousands of crores of black money of India is stashed abroad in the foreign banks by various influential persons of India which is badly hampering the progress of Indian economy. Unless serious efforts are made by the Indian government to bring back that black money India can’t become a developed country.

9) By becoming self sufficient in food grain production



A country can’t become a super power unless it becomes self sufficient in the production of food grains i.e. capable of feeding its population through its own produce & without any foreign aid. India hasn’t reached to that level as yet. So to become a super power India must increase its production of food grains that can only be done by bringing new & latest agricultural techniques.

10) By proper storage of food grains



Since it is a well established fact that only that country can become a super power which is self sufficient in food grain production & there are two ways to reach that level. First way is by increasing the production of food grains & the second way is by proper storage of such food grains. In India millions of tons of food grains are destroyed every year due to lack of proper storage facilities in India. So, if Indian government can build enough storage houses to store the food grains India can become self sufficient in food grains which in turn will make India a developed country.

11) By maintaining good relations with foreign countries



A developed country is one which maintains good & friendly relations with all the foreign countries of the world. So to become a super power India must keep good relations not only with powerful countries like USA, Russia, France, England & Germany but also with hostile countries like Pakistan & China.

12) By strengthening democracy



Although India is the most happening democracy of the world yet it must make constant efforts to strengthen that democracy since only a democratic country can become a super power because only a democratic government enjoys the support of its people since it is elected by them & without the whole hearted support of people a country can’t achieve the status of super power.

13) By countering terrorism



Terrorism is the biggest threat to the stability of a country since an unstable country can’t become a super power. So to become a super power India must make serious efforts to eliminate terrorism from the country whether it’s the terrorism in Kashmir or the Naxalites & Maoists operating in various other parts of the country.

14) By political accountability



Politicians in India enjoy vast & unrestricted powers which are not enjoyed by any other politicians of the world. There is nothing called political accountability in India because of which politician indulge in various kinds of illegal & corrupt practices like crime, anti social activities, corruption etc. which seriously hampers the development of the country. So there is need of strict laws in India to put a curb on the unrestricted powers of the politicians & to punish them for their misdeeds. Unless this is done India can’t become a super power.

15) By judicial accountability



Apart from politicians if there is anyone else who enjoys such vast powers in India it is the Indian judiciary. In India there is lack of not only political accountability but judicial accountability as well because of which several judges also indulge in various illegal & corrupt practices which in turn hampers the progress of the country. So some strict laws must be made to check the vast powers of judges & to punish them for their illegal & corrupt practices.

16) By performing fundamental duties



Twelve fundamental duties are provided under Article 51A of constitution of India for Indian citizens. If these duties are performed by the citizens it can help a lot in the development of the country so as to make it a super power.

17) By adopting proper Income tax policy



Income tax policy of India should be little more lenient & must not put extra pressure on the citizens. A good income tax policy can encourage the people to pay the taxes & refrain from tax evasion which in turn would put a check on black money which is one of the biggest hindrance in the progress of India.

18) By equitable distribution of natural & other resources of the country



A country can become a developed country only when all of its states are developed & this is possible only when the central government equitably distributes the natural & other resources of the country between all the states.

19) By developing under developed states



Since only a developed state leads to a developed country. So it is the duty of the government of India to invest more money & efforts in those states which are under developed & backward so as to make them more advanced. In India several states are developed while few are under developed which should be given special treatment to make them developed states if India wants to become a super power.

20) By becoming self sufficient in the field of defence



India still largely depends upon countries like Russia, Israel, USA & France for its defence equipments whether it’s the aircrafts, tanks, spy satellites & so on. Unless India starts manufacturing all its defence equipments itself it can’t become a super power. So, Indian government must make some efforts to become self sufficient in defence equipments.

21) By overcoming shortage of electricity



In India there is acute shortage of electricity due to less supply & more demand. Electricity is needed not only for household purposes but also for industries & other commercial purposes. Unless enough electricity is provided to these industries they can’t increase their output which is necessary for the development of the country. Moreover there are various villages in India where there is no electricity & unless electricity reaches all the Indian villages India can’t become a super power.

22) By organizing big sporting events



India can show the entire world that it is a rapidly developing country & a potential super power by organizing mega sporting events like Olympic Games & Football world cup which are a great international platform to showcase the entire world the might of a country.

23) By improving the standard of living of people



People of developed country have a high standard of living as the governments of those countries provide lot of basic facilities to their citizens. Indian government must do the same to improve the standard of living of people of India & thereby making India a developed country.

24) By rapid Industrialization



A country can become a developed country by establishing new industries & factories as these industries are a major contributor to the national income of a country. So, industrialization is another way to make India a super power.

25) By space exploration



A country can show its power to the entire world by way of space exploration. Although India has sent a man in space i.e. Rakesh Sharma & an unmanned mission Chandrayaan 1 on moon but these efforts are not enough. So, India needs to send several manned missions to moon & other celestial bodies to show the entire world that India is a fast emerging super power.

26) By resolving the Kashmir issue



Kashmir is an international dispute between India & Pakistan because of which thousands of people are loosing their lives in Kashmir every year due to terrorism. The government of India has to spend thousands of crores of rupees to maintain law & order in Kashmir. So, if the Kashmir issue is resolved the same money can be utilized for development works in India.

27) By repayment of international debt



India is still under millions of dollars of international debt which is badly affecting the progress of Indian economy. So, unless that debt is repaid by India with interest Indian economy can’t be strengthened & India can’t become a super power.

28) By strengthening its nuclear capabilities



Although India became a nuclear power a long time ago but India needs to make continuous efforts to develop its nuclear capabilities by developing new nuclear weapons which is absolutely necessary to become a super power.

29) By international trade



International trade not only improves the relations of a country with foreign countries but it is also a good source of national income. So, India can become a developed country by increasing its international trade with other countries.

30) By controlling fundamentalists



In every country there are certain sections of people who are called radicals or fundamentalists. These persons are the biggest obstacle in the development of a country since they are opposed to every change whether it is beneficial for the country or not. So, if India wants to become a super power it must check those radicals & fundamentalists operating in the country.

31) By checking human rights violations



A country can be called a developed country only when there are no cases of human rights violation in the country or even if there are such cases they are strictly dealt with. So, India must put a check on human rights violations in the country & must strictly deal with those cases if it wants to become a super power.

32) By abolishing reservation



Reservation is another major factor which is hampering the progress of India. In India preference is given to caste over merit in the matters of public employment which not only hinders the development of the country but also leads to class conflicts. So, India must abolish reservation completely if it wants to become a super power.

33) By putting a check on election expenses



In India thousands of crores of rupees are spent by candidates in the national & state elections which badly affects the economy of the country as it is a completely wasteful expenditure. The same money can be utilized to develop the country. So, India must curb the election expenses of the candidates by making some stringent laws so as to make India a super power.

34) By controlling inflation



Price rise or inflation is the biggest factor which badly affects the economy of a country as it diminishes the value of Indian rupee in the international market & puts the essential commodities out of reach of a common man. So, India must take some effective steps to control inflation if it wants to become a developed country.

35) By proper utilization of natural resources



Various natural resources are found in India like petroleum, coal, iron etc. but the same are not properly utilized. If India wants to become a world super power it must make sure that all its natural resources are properly & fully utilized as these resources are scarce & for that India must use the latest technology to extract & utilize those natural resources.

36) By encouraging renewable sources of energy



India must encourage the use of renewable sources of energy like solar energy, wind energy etc. to satisfy its needs of power & electricity since these resources are unlimited in supply & can help in solving the problem of power shortage in India so as to make India a super power.

37) By having hi tech army, navy & air force



If India wants to become a super power it must provide the latest & best technology & equipments to all the three wings of its forces i.e. army, navy & air force since only hi tech force can defend a country effectively against all kinds of dangers.

38) By increasing the forest area



Indian government must make efforts not only to increase the forest area but also allow plantation of trees in all public places as trees help in reducing lot of problems which India is facing currently like pollution, floods, earthquakes, soil erosion etc. & if these problems are solved India can become a developed country.

39) By having a strong democratic government



If India wants to become a world super power it must have a strong democratic government which should not come under anybody’s pressure & must not hesitate in taking bold decisions if such decisions are beneficial for the country.

40) By providing some freedom to its artists & scholars



Artists & scholars of a country like painters, writers, actors, directors etc. bring lot of name & fame to the country at the international level through their work & thereby project a powerful image of the country. So, India must provide some freedom to its artists & scholars by saving them from vexatious & frivolous litigation if it wants to become a super power.

41) By promoting harmony & universal brotherhood



India is a multi religions country where people of different religions live together like Hindu, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians etc. So, there is need to promote the feeling of harmony & universal brotherhood among the people if India wants to become a developed country.

42) By eradicating unnecessary customs, traditions & superstitions



India is gripped in lot of unnecessary customs, traditions & superstitions which are prevalent in India since time immemorial. These customs, traditions & superstitions are hindering the progress of the country. So, India needs to eliminate such fruitless customs, traditions & superstitions if it wants to become a super power.

43) By eradicating gender bias



In India despite of lot of advancement in every field of life a girl is still considered to be a liability while a boy is considered to be an asset. That’s why the sex ratio of girls in India is continuously falling. Therefore, if India wants to become a super power it must eradicate this gender bias from the mind of people.

44) By revamping the judicial system



Indian judiciary is over burdened with work because of which people have to wait for years to get justice. That’s why people lose faith in the judiciary as justice delayed is justice denied in many cases & a country can’t become a super power unless it enjoys the faith of people. So the Indian government must do something about this problem by opening new courts & employing more judges.

45) By protecting the fundamental rights of citizens



Fundamental rights provided by the Indian constitution to the citizens & non citizens are the basic rights for the existence of a human being unless the same are properly protected by the government India can’t become a super power.

46) By privatization of various public sectors



Efficiency of private sector is much more than public sector & that’s why private sector can contribute much more than public sector to the national income of the country. Therefore if India wants to become a super power it must privatize all the public sectors to improve their efficiency except defence and law & order.

47) By improving transport & communication throughout the country



Good transport & communication facilities like roads, railway tracks, telephone, internet etc. play a great role in connecting & developing the whole country. So in order to become a super power India must develop its transport & communication facilities.

48) By proper implementation of government plans & schemes



The duty of government is not limited to making development plans & schemes rather it is also the duty of government to ensure that those development plans & schemes are properly executed at the grass root level & unless this is done India can’t become a developed country.

49) By revamping the education system



The education system of India is quite monotonous as various subjects which are taught to students are useless. No innovative subjects are introduced for the students that can help them in future. So if India wants to become a super power it must completely revamp its education structure by providing the students facilities to choose only those streams which they like as that will help in their overall development.

50) By encouraging poor but bright students



Indian government must provide proper facilities to the poor but bright & brilliant students in the form of scholarships, financial assistance etc. as these students can contribute a lot in the future to develop the country & make it a super power.

Increasing population is not something to completely despise of. It can be rather used as an advantage, Combining it with good human resource development, high rate of population growth can actually be a good thing for a country.
