India surpasses UK to claim the 5th largest economy in the world

New Delhi: India has surpassed the UK to take over as the fifth-largest economy in the world. In the latter three months of 2021, the nation overtook the United Kingdom as the fifth-largest economy, moving it to sixth place. India has now defeated the UK twice in terms of economics; the first time was in 2019.

According to a Bloomberg article, the Indian economy had ‘nominal’ cash of $854.7 billion in the quarter ending in March. On the other hand, the UK’s equivalent was $814 billion. Using a modified formula and the dollar exchange rate on the last day of the pertinent quarter, this was determined.
