<p>For a developing country like India, the need of inclusive growth is vital to achieve the overall progress of the country. Though it is positive for macro-economic stability, 2008-09 has resulted a relative growth slowdown, mostly from the spillover effects of the weakening of the global economic momentum and volatile financial markets. The following problems are the major concerns for developing countries like India to achieve inclusive growth. They are:&nbsp;<br />
1. Poverty&nbsp;<br />
2. Employment&nbsp;<br />
3. 3) Agriculture&nbsp;<br />
4. Problems in Social Development&nbsp;<br />
5. Regional Disparities&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>Poverty&nbsp;</strong><br />
&bull; A proportionally large share of poor is lower castes. Many see the caste system as a system of exploitation of poor low-ranking groups by more prosperous high-ranking groups. In many parts of India, the land is largely held by high-ranking property owners of the dominant castes that economically exploit low-ranking landless labourers and poor artisans, all the while degrading them with ritual emphases on their so-called god-given inferior status.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; However, casteism is widespread in rural areas, and continues to segregate Dalits. Others, however, have noted the steady rise and empowerment of the Dalits through social reforms and the implementation observations in employment and benefits.&nbsp;<br />

<p><strong>Employment</strong><br />
&bull; Employment considered as one of the big problems for inclusive growth in India. Raising the population at a great speed after independence showed its impact on employment.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; The unemployment became the big worry to the development of the country. Since poverty is much higher than unemployment, employment is the only source to eradicate poverty.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; The quality and quantity of employment in India is very low due to illiteracy and due to over-dependency on agricultural employment. The quality of employment is also a problem.&nbsp;<br />
Agriculture&nbsp;<br />
&bull; Traditionally, India is considered as the agricultural-based country. As the majority of Indians are engaged in agriculture for employment, the recent developments in the other sectors decreased this major sector&#39;s growth.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; Some of the problems in Indian agriculture are:&nbsp;<br />
&bull; Long term factors like steeper decline in per capita land availability, shrinking of farm size slow reduction in the share of employment.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; Low labour productivity in agriculture and the gap between agriculture and non-agriculture is widening.&nbsp;<br />
&bull; Decline in yield growth due to land and water problems, vulnerability to world commodity prices, farmer&#39;s suicides.<br />
&bull; Disparities in growth across regions and crops, i.e., the growth rate declined more in rainfed areas.<br />

<p><strong>Problems in Social Development&nbsp;</strong><br />
&bull; Social development is also one of the key concerns in inclusive growth. The social development became the hot criteria in the recent past in India. Social development also facing some problems which is making the path critical to inclusive growth in the country.&nbsp;<br />
<strong>&bull; Some of the problems in the social sector are:</strong><br />
1. Significant regional, social and gender disparities.&nbsp;<br />
2. Low level and slow growth in public expenditures particularly on health.&nbsp;<br />
3. Poor quality delivery systems.<br />
4. Social indicators are much lower for scheduled castes and scheduled tribes.&nbsp;<br />
5. Malnutrition among children is one major problem.<br />
6. Since BPO brought the multi-culture environment in India, this sector is facing under severe pressure due to the global recession.&nbsp;<br />
7. Social advancements in India is still at lower growth due to the strong influence of culture and regional disparities.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br />

<p><strong>Regional Disparities&nbsp;</strong><br />
&bull; Regional disparities are also a major concern for India due to different culture and traditions. Traditional cultures, caste system and the rich &amp; poor feelings favoured some specific groups as a result, the regional disparities raised in India before and after independence. And also, due to the development in agriculture and industrial sector some regions in India developed fast and some other places still are facing the scarcity Some of<br />
<strong>&bull; The regional disparities problems are:&nbsp;</strong><br />
1. Per capita income is highest at Rs.16, 679 in Punjab and lowest per capita income is at Bihar.<br />
2. Female infant mortality varies from 12 in Kerala to 88 in Madhya Pradesh.&nbsp;<br />
3. Female literacy varies from 33.6% in Bihar to 88% in Kerala.<br />
