The bar graph shows the relative percentage contributions to the Indian economy between 1960 and 2000 made by the agricultural, industrial, and service sectors.
Body paragraph 1
Agriculture’s importance gradually decreased over the whole period as the
prominence of services increased decade by decade. For industry, a separate
pattern formed that originally showed a modestly rising proportion before
remaining stable from 1980 onward.
In 1960, agriculture played a major role in India’s GDP, but its contribution to
India’s GDP decreased steadily up to its lowest 13% in 2000.
Body paragraph 2
Contrarily, the service sector had a less significant part in GDP’s contribution of
17%, but its share in GDP rose gradually from 25%-45% between 1970-1980 to
63% in 2000 and became a major part of India’s GDP. For the industrial sector, the pattern is very different from the other two sectors; its contribution marginally grew between 1960 and 1980, from 17% to 25%, and then experienced a period of stability from 1980 to 2000.
In conclusion, what sticks out is that although the trend for services was the
reverse, the contribution of the agriculture sector to the GDP decreased over
