India must aim for 9-10 per cent GDP growth: Amitabh Kant

New Delhi: Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant here on Wednesday said India must aim for 9-10 per cent GDP growth for which the private sector also needs to pitch in along with government-initiated efforts.

“We must aim for 9-10 per cent GDP (gross domestic product). We need to change the country’s mindset to boost growth. Not only the government but also the private sector, led by automobile industry, needs to change its mindset,” Kant said.

He was speaking at the annual conference here of SIAM (Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers), the apex organisation representing vehicle and vehicle engine manufacturers in the country.

Kant said the government is putting in a lot of resources to put in place the right infrastructure to boost growth.

“The total constructed roads have increased by 40 per cent while the total roads awarded have seen an increase by 52 per cent,” he added.
