Perspective - Indian Economy: Growth Prospects 2022 & Beyond | 14 January, 2022

In this episode of the Perspective Prog. based on ‘Indian Economy: Growth Prospects 2022 & Beyond’. The Indian economy is expected to grow 6.5% in the current financial year ending March 2022. This according to the United Nations’ ‘World Economic Situation and Prospects 2022’ report, which states that India’s economic recovery is on a “solid path” amid rapid vaccination progress, less stringent social restrictions and still supportive fiscal and monetary stances. Further, the GDP is expected to expand by 6.7 per cent in 2022 after a 9% expansion in 2021, as base effects wane. At the same time, the report also cautions that while robust export growth and public investments underpin economic activity in the country, high oil prices and coal shortages could put the brakes on economic activity in the near term. In Perspective today, we will analyse with experts the key points made in the UN report on the state and growth projections of the Indian economy, the impact, if any, of the ongoing third wave and the road ahead for 2022.
