The latest Global Trust Index values have revealed that the people of the country hold a great trust in the Modi government despite the much-debated demonetisation and Goods and Services Tax introduced by the government. 

Though India continues to be among the top three nations where trust in government remains high, the figures have dropped a little since last year. 

In 2017, India ranked first in the list with Indonesia, and China behind it. The new data reveals China to be at the top with Indonesia and India behind it. 

The Index is released by communications marketing firm Edelman in Davos last week. 

The Global Trust Index is released annually in Davos. 

The figures released showed the strong growth of trust by the people of China and a steep downfall in the public trust in the US.

The report revealed that the US had suffered the major setback in the Trust Index.
