At least 73 per cent Indians feel that India is heading in the right direction, a 3 per cent climb from last round (in June), revealed the survey by market research firm Ipsos in its monthly survey christened What Worries the World.

India has bucked the global trend of pessimism, where at least 58 per cent of global citizens feel their country is on the wrong track. Further, of the 27 markets covered in the survey, at least 23 feel pessimistic and feel they are on the wrong track.

"Indians are highly optimistic about the direction in which India is heading (we see a further surge of 3 per cent over previous month), at the same time, unemployment has appeared like a bolt from the blue and sits at the top of all worries for Indians," Parijat Chakraborty, Country Service Line Leader, Public Affairs and Corporate Reputation, Ipsos India said in a statement.

"There is also concern for crime and violence, financial and political corruption (though it has dropped by 5 per cent over previous month), terrorism (which too has receded by 2 per cent) and poverty and social inequality (which too has decreased by 1 per cent). Job creation needs to be the top most priority of the government," he added.

According to the survey report, unemployment is the top most worry of Indians in the past few rounds, unemployment has never appeared in the top worries of Indians.

The top five issues worrying Indians are unemployment (46 per cent), crime and violence (37 per cent), financial and political corruption (34 per cent), Terrorism (29 per cent) and poverty and social Inequality (28 per cent).
