overview oF economy

Indian economy has weathered many challenges successfully in recent times and is currently placed on a cyclical upturn, on the back of strong policies and a whiff of new optimism. In the recent past, the economy faced testing times with issues like lower growth, high levels of inflation and widening current account deficit; escalated by an unsupportive external environment. Growth is back, with its desirable concomitants of mild inflation and manageable current account balance with stable rupee and rising foreign exchange reserves, signaling improvements in macro-economic stability. India is one of the very few countries for which IMF and World Bank have raised their growth assessment. The ongoing revival is remarkable against the fact that it happened despite a highly tentative global economic conditions and a below-par domestic agricultural season.

The year 2014-15 has witnessed key policy reforms, aimed at aiding growth revival and surmounting the structural constraints in the economy. The policy action has combined the needs of short term economic management with focus on taming inflation and external sector imbalances with a medium to long-term vision for transformation and development, manifested in significant reforms aimed at rationalizing administered pricing policies in petroleum and natural gas, stirring infrastructure development and de-bottlenecking the economy with initiatives to unshackle land acquisition for development (along with rehabilitation requirements therein) and to ensure adequate availability of key inputs like coal and power. The growth agenda of the Government has been tethered to the revival of manufacturing, unleashed in the "Make in India", initiative, accompanied by liberalization of foreign direct investment, a large array of investment facilitation measures and steps to improve saving.
