[Burning Issue] India- Bangladesh: The economic comparison

India, the fastest-growing major economy, is seen as the powerhouse of South Asia, but this may soon change. Having already stolen a march over India on key social indices, small neighbour Bangladesh is now on the verge of establishing a lead on the economic front too.

  • The recent debate in India-Bangladesh relations has erupted since the GDP projections by the International Monetary Fund this year.
  • It has suddenly dawned upon the critics; media and expert commentators that Bangladesh has managed to build a thriving economy primarily dependent on export markets.
  • Their economic success is being contrasted with the economic contraction in India due to the pandemic and lockdowns.

Centrestage of the debate: The economic comparison

  • According to the IMF’s medium-term forecasts, Bangladesh’s per capita GDP is expected to overtake India’s this year.
  • Over the five-year period ending in 2025, Bangladesh’s per capita GDP is expected to grow at a slightly higher pace.
  • It implies that in 2025, it’s per capita income would be $2,756, marginally higher than that of India’s at $2,729.

Why it matters?

  • Typically, countries are compared on the basis of GDP growth rate, or on absolute GDP.
  • For the most part since Independence, on both these counts, India’s economy has been better than Bangladesh’s.
  • However, per capita income also involves another variable — the overall population — and is arrived at by dividing the total GDP by the total population.

Why does India lag behind?

There are three reasons why India’s per capita income has fallen below Bangladesh this year:

  1. The first thing to note is that Bangladesh’s economy has been clocking rapid GDP growth rates since 2004.
  2. Secondly, over the same 15-year period, India’s population grew faster (around 21%) than Bangladesh’s population (just under 18%).
  3. Lastly, the most immediate factor was the relative impact of Covid-19 on the two economies in 2020.

This is not the first time that Bangladesh plunged ahead of India. In 1991, when India was undergoing a severe crisis and grew by just above 1%, Bangladesh’s per capita GDP surged ahead of India’s. Since then, India again took the lead.

How has Bangladesh managed to grow so fast and so robustly?

Formed from the poorest regions of Pakistan, Bangladesh has come a long way since its independence in 1971. However, moving away from Pakistan also gave the country a chance to start afresh on its economic and political identity.

(1) Low wages

  • With wages in China rising, it has vacated about $140 billion in exports of unskilled labour-intensive sectors, including apparel, clothing, leather and footwear.
  • Bangladesh being the low on wages successfully managed to harness the situation.

(2) Garment industry

  • A key driver of growth was the garment industry where women workers gave Bangladesh the edge to corner the global export markets from which China retreated.
  • It also helps its economy such that its GDP is led by the industrial sector, followed by the services sector. Both of these sectors create a lot of jobs and are more remunerative than agriculture.

(3) Diversification of labour

  • Its labour laws were not as stringent and its economy increasingly involved women in its labour force.
  • This can be seen in higher female participation in the labour force.

(4) Focus on developmental metrics

  • Beyond economics, a big reason for Bangladesh’s progressively faster growth rate is that especially over the past two decades it improved on several social and political metrics.
  • It included parameters such as health, sanitation, financial inclusion, and women’s political representation.

(5) Inclusive growth

  • On financial inclusion, according to the World Bank’s Global Findex database, while a smaller proportion of its population has bank accounts, the proportion of dormant bank accounts is quite small when compared to India.
  • This is the same reflected by the per capita GDP comparison which has triggered this BI.

(6) Gendered development

  • Bangladesh is also far ahead of India in the latest gender parity rankings. This measures differences in the political and economic opportunities as well as the educational attainment and health of men and women.  
  • Out of 154 countries mapped for it, Bangladesh is in the top 50 while India languishes at 112.

Growing Bangladesh: An uneasy journey

The past 15 years have witnessed a tremendous turnaround in Bangladesh’s standing in the world. It has left Pakistan far behind and extricated itself from the tricky initial years to establish a democratic system.  But its progress is still iffy.

  • Poverty: Its level of poverty is still much higher than India’s. Moreover, it still trails India in basic education parameters and that is what explains its lower rank in the Human Development Index.
  • Work hazards: But Bangladesh’s biggest worry is not on the economic front. Its loosely regulated garment industry is known to cut corners on labour safety and the onerous work conditions.
  • Political turmoil: The bigger threat to its prospects emerges from its everyday politics. The leading political parties are routinely engaged in violent oppression of each other.
  • High corruption: In the 2019 edition of Transparency International’s rankings, Bangladesh ranks a low 146 out of 198 countries (India is at 80th rank; a lower rank is worse off).
  • Rise in Radicalism: Add to this a massive surge of radical Islam, which has resulted in several bloggers being killed for speaking out unpopular views.

These developments have the ability not just to arrest Bangladesh’s progressive social reforms that have empowered women but also to derail its economic miracle.

Instructive comparison: A way forward

  • In part, Bangladesh’s recent economic performance, and differences between the two countries can be traced to the former’s stellar export performance, especially in garments and apparel.
  • In comparison, India’s exports have remained sluggish, as export pessimism has taken hold.
  • In the current context, with three of the four drivers of growth struggling, exports could provide the much-needed fillip to India’s economy.
  • However, this would require India to reverse its recent stance on trade — lower rather than raise tariffs, embrace free trade agreements, and seek greater integration with global supply chains.
  • This will provide India yet another opportunity. However, this will require the government to pivot away from protectionism.

We must look inwards

  • Such comparisons are fundamentally flawed and if we were to undertake such comparisons then we must also seek accountability for how India’s per capita income fell drastically.
  • There are two compelling issues here that need to be adequately discussed.
  • First pertains to the comparisons being made, and the second with regards to our sudden realization of the fact that we need to catch up.
  • Bangladesh will at some point have a higher per-capita income than India because India has a higher population.
  • So even though we have a higher GDP in absolute levels, the per capita figure could be smaller in future years.

Bangladesh is doing well on the economic front must be appreciated as its augurs well for the global economy – and for the global fight against poverty. It must be viewed as a lesson, a reinforced lesson that our failure to embrace reforms would systematically result in us lagging.

Conclusion

Although the leaders of Bangladesh and India have similar goals, the difference in the country’s development models is making for an interesting experiment.

  • Bangladesh has seen both structural transformation and the rise of sectors capable of generating decent foreign exchange earnings, which has helped policymakers sustain comfortable macroeconomic fundamentals.
  • To sustain such economic progress in India, there is a need to improve core governance challenges — weak tax mobilization capacity, an over-burdened commodity basket, inadequate capacity — that have plagued almost all South Asian countries.

With many parts of the world quickly losing faith in the doctrine of free trade, and larger trading blocs increasingly veering towards protectionism, India needs to thoroughly examine its self-reliance policy in context within which it competes.

A well-informed start is always a good start.

Talk to senior mentors from Civilsdaily: Click here and fill Samanvaya form for IAS 2021 and IAS 2022. (also provided at the bottom of this post).


What is the best strategy for IAS 2021 and 2022 exams? How to start preparation? What does UPSC expect? How to cover the syllabus? How to connect current affairs with static? When to start answer writing? How to plan a daily schedule and then follow it..

There are a number of similar questions that you must be facing. IAS preparation is not just about memorizing and information gathering. Before you start you need to get answers to these questions. (Read below about our three-tiered mentoring)

More than 10.5 lakh applied, but only 796 are going to clear IAS 2020. It is going to be much more challenging in 2021 and 2022.

We’ve had a discussion with 1800 aspirants who failed in Prelims 2020. Many had taken multiple attempts before that.

Lack of direction, no guidance, inability to make required necessary changes in their preparation, and an absence of a well-defined strategy were issues common to all. (What issues are you facing? tell us)

Prelims 2020 in many ways was a watershed moment for IAS aspirants. It has highlighted the changing nature of UPSC and to be successful you need to adapt to the expectations of UPSC and adopt a new approach.

For 2021 aspirants, your preparation should be highly outcome-oriented (enabling you to fetch more marks). Every action of yours must be very objectively defined, every step as a part of your strategy. Whatever you are learning must be utilizable in the exam (both pre and mains). Your preparation should have an element of measurability.

Moreover, you need to balance both Prelims and Mains on one hand and current-static-optional on the other. Fill Samanvaya form to know how it should be done.

It’s about how ‘you’ should be doing it instead of how someone else did it. That is the ‘elephant in the room’.

All this stands true for 2022 aspirants as well. This is the right time to start preparation.

Fill Samanvaya form given at the bottom of this post.

Broadly, six factors determine your success in cracking this prestigious IAS exam and the most important being understanding the expectations of UPSC and according to that planning and strategizing; other being, Learning – Knowledge and information; Analyzing – making linkages, connections, etc.; Executing and utilizing information; and Constant course correction – because mistakes are inevitable, need to rectify them asap.

(IAS 2021) December batches for Foundation 2021 and UAP 2021 launched | Enrollments open

Detailed Timetable for Foundation/UAP 2021 can be obtained from here

Dear students,

The enrollments for the December batch of Foundation 2021 and the UAP 2021 program are open now.

The Prelims 2020 has shocked veterans and baffled the first-timers. If anything this paper has taught is that you need to adapt to the expectations of UPSC and adopt a new approach.

UPSC is changing. No more is it about isolating yourself and just doing current affairs, static, attending random classes, or reading a plethora of books. It’s time to bury the old ways for IAS preparation, for good.

CivilsDaily’s toppers in UPSC CSE 2019

Not only UPSC has a vast syllabus but it expects a certain level of intellectual, social, and emotional maturity from its aspirants. It’s a very complex task to come up with a study-plan/time-table that harmonizes every element and takes into consideration the return on investment on certain topics.

We’ve just now launched the December batches for the following courses. It is the apt time you should start for IAS 2021. Any delay beyond this point will make things unmanageable for you.

Foundation 2021

It is a complete program for IAS 2021 which includes:

MasterClasses -to ensure comprehensive coverage of all the portions of static syllabus along with an in-depth analysis.

Ultimate Assessment Program – to evaluate your level of preparation through various tests- Prelims, Mains, Essay, Samachar Manthan, Decimate Prelims.

A dedicated mentor to guide you through the maze of UPSC exam.

Exclusive membership to Habitat our learning platform.

Click here for more details on Foundation 2021

Ultimate Assessment Program 2021

Click here to get more details on UAP 2021

A mentor guided assessment program to keep you on track at all times and bring in strategic interventions when and where required.

How are we going to approach?

Broadly, six factors determine your success in cracking this prestigious IAS exam. The most important being understanding the expectations of UPSC; according to that planning and strategizing; then Learning – Knowledge and information; Analyzing – making linkages, connections, etc.; Executing and utilizing information; and Constant course correction – because mistakes are inevitable, need to rectify them asap.

Through our mentorship-driven and personalized approach, we’re hell-bent on simplifying things for you. Hence, we have come up with a plan that you will instantly connect with you and give you a vibe that yes you can do it!

1. Integrated Approach

Preparation for Prelims and Mains is harmonized. You study a subject, attempt prelims tests and then attempt mains tests for the same. This leads to a solid preparation.

Many institutes our there will not able to present an integrated approach. They offer separate timetables for prelims and mains confusing the students further. That’s not the case with us!

2. Simplified Approach

Our Time-table is the easiest to remember and follow. All test prelims, mains, and Samachar Manthan will be held on the weekend.

  • Prelims Tests are held on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.
  • Monthly Current Affairs Tests are held on the last Saturday of every month.
  • Mains Tests are held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month after the subject is complete.
  • Essay Tests are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month.

3. Priority-wise Coverage of subjects

We are starting with the most important subjects from the exam perspective first. These are very predictable + have a very high return on investment. They need to be mastered if one has to have a shot at the exam. Polity, Modern History, and Economics. The lower priority ones follow afterward.

4. Logical Division of Topics

Subjects have been divided into topics that logically fit together. Eg. for Polity we ask you to prepare in 2 parts – first, till Central Government and second, from State Government and beyond. This division is not ad-hoc and does not break the flow of your studies.

5. Base and Advanced Sources

We have divided the sources into 2 parts, Base Sources, and Advanced Sources. Base sources are those which you have to master. You should come to advanced sources only when you are thorough with the Base Sources.

All this under the guidance of a dedicated mentor who will oversee your progress, help you strategies your preparation, plan it and make it measurable, help you analyze and evaluate your preparation; and introduce strategic interventions wherever and whenever required.

Adapt to the expectations of UPSC, bury old ways of preparation | Fill Samanvaya for IAS 2021/2022 to know how.

Do you know what UPSC expects from an aspirant? IAS Pre 2020 can be taken as a watershed moment. If you feel you’re at the crossroads this is for you.

Fill Samanvaya form here to schedule a free one-on-one mentorship session (given at the bottom)


The Prelims 2020 in many ways was a watershed moment for IAS aspirants. It shocked veterans and baffled the first-timers. If anything this paper has taught is that you need to adapt to the expectations of UPSC and adopt a new approach.

UPSC is changing. No more is it about isolating yourself and just doing current affairs, static, attending random classes, or reading a plethora of books. It’s time to bury the old ways for IAS preparation, for good.

How to prepare for UPSC mains 2021 ? How to write answers?

We’ve had a discussion with around 2700 IAS aspirants (beginners and veterans) last month and all of them had doubts related to either sources and books or answer writing and even essays and interviews.

To borrow from the parable of ‘blind men and the elephant’ almost all of these aspirants were trying to make sense of UPSC but unable to look at the whole picture. You need to tackle that ‘elephant in the room’. Look at the holistic picture. First, understand what it stands for, what expectations do they have from you, then understand how to fulfill them, then plan and move forward.

How to prepare for upsc 2021? Strategy for upsc 2021?
Answer writing for 2020

Broadly, six factors determine your success in cracking this prestigious IAS exam and the most important being understanding the expectations of UPSC and according to that planning and strategizing; other being Learning – Knowledge and information; Analyzing – making linkages, connections, etc.; Executing and utilizing information; and Constant course correction – because mistakes are inevitable, need to rectify them asap.

But how to do that?

Mains 2020 is close and time is a scarcity. Almost every aspirant was affected by Covid19 led shutdown and displacement. Preparation was disrupted on a massive scale, access to notes and material was restricted, and continuity was broken. Now, with less than 75 days left, we can’t afford to lose sight on our goal.

At this point in time studying everything is not desirable neither is it feasible. You don’t have time to read everything, segregate what is important and what’s not, make notes, cover different dimensions, and then find a way to utilize that. What you need at this point in time is efficient and organized coverage of the most relevant topics for the IAS mains exam. With QEP we aim to help you achieve all this.

What is QEP 2020?

QEP or Quality Enrichment Program is an intensive and holistic program for IAS Mains 2020 GS papers. We aim to cover 250+ most relevant and probable issues with a 360-degree view, covering all dimensions of each and every topic. Not only you’ll learn and analyze these issues but will also understand how to utilize them via Daily Answer Writing and Mains Test Series.

Why QEP?

Current affairs in the IAS mains exam must be covered from an ‘issue perspective’ and almost all of them have multiple dimensions to it, various stakeholders involved, have interconnectedness, and can be solved with a multipronged approach only. This should reflect in your answers.

QEP will help you enrich your pre-existing coverage and will add quality to it. With tests and mentorship, you will get an evaluation and necessary course correction. And we will provide daily answer writing to help you sharpen your answer writing skills and knowledge with our daily initiatives on Habitat.

Comprehensive coverage of 250+ most relevant and probable topics/themes for UPSC mains 2020

Coverage of topics/themes in QEP will have one and only one purpose – to enable you to write great answers for any question from a particular topic. You can leave your GS current affairs topic coverage to us and focus on answer writing and revising.

All relevant topics/themes will get covered within a month leaving you with ample amount of time to revise them and practice answers multiple times.
