In this article, we will share the charts and data for the following indicators related to India Gross Domestic Product (GDP): Nominal GDP, Nominal GDP per capita, GDP on a Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) basis, GDP PPP per capita, and Real GDP Growth. We will present the charts and data for these indicators during the 40-year period from 1980 to 2020. We have used the publicly available data from International Monetary Fund (IMF). The data for 2019 and 2020 are estimates by IMF staff.
To make the charts a little interesting, we have added information about the political parties leading the governments during the different time periods. We have also provided the information about the prime ministers of India from 1980 to 2018. This can help us relate the GDP indicator data during a particular time period with the political party leading the government and its leader. The table below provides information on the prime ministers of India from 1980 to 2018, their political parties (or political alliances), and their office start and end years.
