The growth rate of national income in India has neither be rate often uniform nor study during five year plans. During the first and the second five year plan annual growth rate of national income was 4.2%, but it plunged to 2.6% in third plan. The sixth plan was a grand success and the national income increased by 5.4%.During the eighth plan national income recorded a high growth rate of 6.7% which was the highest achievement in any of the plan gone by.
