INDIA Full Form
As the name India (Country), is not an acronym and so, it doesn’t have any full form. India is a South Asian country and it is the seventh largest country by area and second largest country by population. India is the most populous democracy in the world and is bounded by the Indian ocean on the south, the Arabian sea on the south west, and Bay of Bengal on the south east. The name India is derived from the word Indus (Indus was a river whose major parts were oriented in Pakistan) which itself is derived from the old Persian word Hindu, from Sanskrit Sindhu. Word indus gets its first reference under the name of the world’s oldest civilization, indus valley civilization. Indus is also the name of a river. Greeks used to refer the country on the other side of the river Indus as Indoi and it is altered as India later. In 2017, the Indian economy was the world’s sixth largest by nominal GDP and third largest by purchasing power parity. Following market-based economic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies and is considered a newly industrialised country.
