The economy depends on many factors. The factors are agricultural production, industrial production, contribution from service sector and contribution by export/import of goods, Plantations of spices, mushroom development, floriculture, fish farming and horticulture can make the agro sector viable and income generating. The industrial sectors need to be further diversified to areas like production of alloys, production of electronics goods, production of military hard wares and production of lithium batteries. Production of varieties of chemical products is necessary to meet the domestic demands and export to other countries. Production of solar panels, wind mills and non conventional energy products may help the export sector. Skill development, population control and communal harmony are factors which may help the economy. Stress on mineral production and processing may also help the economy. Diversion to electric vehicles may reduce the import of oil from other countries. All these combined may help the economy in future.
