Also based on the prognosis of both the IMF and World Bank, the world economy is to improve with the impetus coming from the developed economies. Future outlook will also depend upon following;

* The infrastructure sector is likely to witness an uptrend and along with manufacturing would lead India''s industrial sector. Overall income growth would be higher than that last year, thus allowing space for growth in consumption and savings.

* Although, capital inflows into emerging economies is likely to moderate with the tapering of the US stimulus and economic growth gaining momentum, inflows into India is likely to persist. India, despite witnessing a marked slowdown in its economy is widely regarded as a stable economy among emerging markets with untapped potential. The recent surge in FII inflows in the run up to the elections bears testimony to this.

* There is growing optimism that exports will improve in FY15, with expectations of improvement in global economic prospects and increase in consumption demand in advanced economies.

* Significant upside risk of inflation in FY15 has emerged on account of the expectation of below normal monsoon.
