OVERVIEW OF ECONOMY

As per median estimates, based on the Survey of Professional Forecasters conducted by RBI, the Indian economy is likely to post a moderate recovery in 2014-15. GDP growth is estimated to improve to around 5.5% supported by an anticipated pick up in investment activity in view of the part resolution of stalled projects, improved business and consumer confidence and expectation of lower inflation. External demand is expected to improve further during 2014-15 stemming from encouraging growth prospects in Advanced Economies. Tighter global financial and monetary conditions, risks to agricultural growth due to the likelihood of sub-normal monsoons given the impending El Nino weather conditions, possibility of a reversal in capital flows with the interest rate cycle picking up in Advanced Economies represent some of the key downside risks going forward. A stable government at the Centre, greater clarity and certainty in policies and fast track clearances of large projects would go a long way in engendering a much needed boost to investor sentiment and revivingthe private investment cycle in particular.

In the face of growing uncertainties in global financial conditions, monetary easing was paused in June 2013. However, there has been significant improvement in the external situation. With acceleration in the growth of exports and decline in imports, the trade deficit for 2013-14 (April- December) has narrowed considerably. Reduction in the trade deficit, complemented by a rise in net invisibles receipts, resulted in significant reduction in the current account deficit (CAD) in the first half (H1) of 2013-14. In response to these developments, and due to steps undertaken to moderate the CAD, the exchange rate, that breached the level of 68 per US$ in August 2013, recovered to 61.16 per US$ on October 11, 2013. The exchange rate of the rupee averaged 61.91 per US$in December2013.

The World Bank has projected an economic growth rate of 5.7 per cent in FY 15 for India, due to a more competitive exchange rate and several significant investments going forward.

India is the third biggest economy in the world in terms of purchasing power parity (PPP), according to a World Bank report. The country was ranked 10th in the previous survey conducted in 2005.
