In recent months, global headwinds have slowed India’s GDP growth. Moreover, the economy has been harmed by rising interest rates around the world.
India’s growth is now only expected to reach 6.8% for the current fiscal year, according to the Reserve Bank.
According to the central bank’s forecast, real GDP growth for 2022–2023 would probably be 6.8 percent, with the third and fourth quarter coming in at 4.4 percent and 4.2 percent, respectively.
According to projections, the Indian economy will expand by 7.1 percent in the April–June quarter of FY2023–24 and by 5.9 percent the following quarter.
A number of important issues, including high inflation, sluggish demand, and a rising unemployment rate in the nation, must be addressed in the budget year 2023–24.
