Some sales pitch this!
A Commonwealth Games 2010 organising committee document says it expects the Games to result in an 'overall economic impact of $4,940 million on India's GDP' during the four years ending 2012.
It also expects to create close to 24.7 lakh jobs.
This, the document goes on to say, is almost three times the economic impact the 2006 Melbourne Games had on Australian GDP.
