Prof Prabhat Ranjan Listed Among “Visionaries of India” by Outlook Magazine

Prof Prabhat Ranjan has been identified by Outlook Magazine as one of the visionaries to take India towards a $ 5 Trillion economy

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected India to become a $5 trillion economy with the third largest GDP in 2027-28, early in the ‘Amrit Kaal’ on the path to achieving the goal of becoming an advanced economy by 2047. “Outlook” magazine has tried to identify “visionaries” of India under whose guidance, India is moving towards achieving this goal in a special anniversary edition.

It says -“Amid a landscape with global economic hurdles, India is resolutely charting its path toward financial growth under the insightful leadership of Visionaries of a $5 Trillion economy. Their determined approach and strategic actions are fundamental to India’s ambitious drive for economic advancement, driving the nation to establish itself as a significant economic force globally amid various slowdowns.
From Industrialists to Union Ministers to filmmakers to fashion designers, we have visionaries who are passionate, powerful, innovators and inspirers, achievers, and enablers. These visionaries with a high appetite for risk, a tolerance for tough decisions, and a pioneering spirit are the changemakers of modern India.”

Prof Prabhat Ranjan has been identified to be one of these visionaries to take India towards a $ 5 Trillion economy along with others in this coveted list e.g. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Foreign Minister Dr S Jaishankar, Industrialist Mukesh Ambani, World Bank President Ajaypal Singh Banga, Industrialist Gautam Adani, Film Maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Fashion Designer Manish Malhotra etc.
