Indian culture: Customs and traditions

 Indian culture is among the world’s oldest as the people of India can track their civilization back as far as 4,500 years ago. Many sources describe it as “Sa Prathama Sanskrati Vishvavara” — the first and the supreme culture in the world, according to the All World Gayatri Pariwar(opens in new tab) (AWGP) organization.

 Western societies did not always see the culture of India very favorably, according to Christina De Rossi, an anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College in London. Early anthropologists once considered culture as an evolutionary process, and “every aspect of human development was seen as driven by evolution,” she told Live Science. “In this view, societies outside of Europe or North America, or societies that did not follow the European or Western way of life, were considered primitive and culturally inferior. Essentially this included all the colonized countries and people, such as African countries, India, and the Far East.”

 However, Indians made significant advances in architecture (Taj Mahal), mathematics (the invention of zero) and medicine (Ayurveda) well in advance of many western civilizations.

Weather and Climate

 India is the seventh largest country in the world by size and it boasts an incredibly diverse collection of landscapes which are bordered along the eastern, western and southern coast by the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean respectively.  In the north, the country shares its borders with Bangladesh, China, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Pakistan, and just off the southern coast – alongside a number of islands – lies Sri Lanka.  The country is largely divided up into a number of main regions geographically.  These include the great mountains in the north; the Thar desert to the northwest; the Indo-Gangetic plain characterised by three important rivers (the Ganges, the Indus and the Brahmaputra); the peninsular plateau divided by central highlands and scattered with shallow valleys and rounded hills; and the coastal plains home to a great number of smaller rivers.  There are also two main groupings of islands, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal, and the Lakshadweep Islands in the Arabian Sea.

 In terms of climate, India can be divided into a number of regions.  For the most part, the country has a tropical climate which throughout most of the interior is a mixture of wet and dry tropical weather.  In northern parts there is a humid tropical climate and along the western coast lies wet tropical areas.  Stretching in a strip up the centre of the country is a semi-arid climate, which also stretches across the north-west.  Although stereotypical images may bring to mind the heat of India, the country can also experience extreme cold.  This takes place largely in the northern mountainous regions which include the cold, arid and windswept Himalayas.

Standards for Trade

 India historically made efforts to align its national standards with international norms, and most Indian standards are harmonized with International Standards Organization (ISO) standards.  Nevertheless, there is current pressure within India to devise Indian Standards, which will create barriers to trade and pose challenges to U.S. exporters in certain sectors.  India frequently fails to notify the WTO of new standards, and to allow time for discussion with its trading partners prior to implementation. 

 Because of pressure from consumer rights groups, NGOs, and environmental activists, there is a growing emphasis on product standards in India in various industry sectors.  The proactive role of Department of Consumer Affairs and Bureau of Indian standards (BIS) under the Mission ‘One Nation One Standard’ have also contributed to an increased awareness and emphasis on product standards in India.


 In India, voluntary standards are exclusively developed by BIS.  BIS was originally established under the Bureau of Indian Standards Act of 1986 and is responsible for the development and formulation of standards.  In March 2016, the government of India passed a revised bill to replace the 30-year-old BIS Act.  The bill established BIS as a national body and empowered the central government to authorize any other agency having necessary accreditation for conformity assessment against Indian standards.  
 BIS is comprised of representatives of industry, consumer organizations, scientific and research bodies, professional organizations, technical institutions, Indian government ministries, and members of parliament.  BIS is also involved with product certification, quality system certifications and testing, and consumer affairs. 
 BIS is the only organization in India authorized to operate quality certification plans under an Act of Parliament.  It serves as the official member and sets policy for Indian participation in the ISO and International Electro Technical Commission (IEC). 
 In addition, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) was established under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, as a statutor body for implementing and regulating food standards.


 Goods & Services Tax (GST) is levied on all imported goods, with the tax rate being 10% of the value of the goods. In addition, there is the Integrated GST or IGST which is applied to the value of the imported goods plus all applicable customs duties.

Export country selection guide

This guide will answer the question: “Which countries should I focus on first when I make my export plan?”

190 countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe

When starting with your export plans, it seems that the whole world is at your feet to conquer. But where to start? You can’t even research all these countries first, so you have to make an initial selection.

This guide helps you with this selection process. It is made specifically for small and medium-sized enterprises. In section A, we first filter out those countries that are (mostly) not suitable for an SME to do business in. filtration leads to a selection of 60 countries that at first hand seem to be ‘safe’ for you.

In section B, we help you select based on themes, such as urbanization, aging, trade & logistics, and income differences. Depending on your product or service’s most relevant features, you can decide which countries you want to research further.

Data source

All data comes from the World Bank database and is as much as possible based on the year 2016. In case 2016 data is not available, we use 2015, as long as no significant changes are to be expected (in case of year-­‐to-­‐year inflation, the changes may be substantial, in case of the urbanization, changes will be limited).

There was insufficient data available from several countries, mostly smaller countries like Belize, Monaco, Malta, or Tunesia, confined economies like Cuba and North Korea, and governments at war like Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. Hong Kong and Macau mentioned Taiwan is not in the statistics since China doesn’t see it as a country.

An explanation on GDP and PPP

n our comparison, we have used the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of a country. GDP is the monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced within a country’s borders in a specific period. Income from overseas investments, for example, is not taken into account.

The GDP PPP is the Gross Domestic Product converted to dollars using Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) rates. Goods and services may be cheaper or more expensive in different countries. With a GDP per person of, for example, 40.000 dollars in the US, you can buy more than with the same GDP per person in Australia. The GDP PPP corrects this, so in Australia, the GDP PPP will be only 30.000 dollars.
