India has now surpassed its former colonial master, the United Kingdom, making itself the sixth largest economy in the world. For the first time in more than 100 years, India has achieved this feat.
The US, China, Japan, Germany and France make up the top five economies of the world. This advancement is primarily because of the rapid economic growth of India and the Brexit fiasco.
As per a tweet made by Kiren Rijiju, Indian minister of state for Home Affairs, there has been a decline of approximately 20 percent in the value of the pound over the last year.
