Economic Scenario

The year 2009-2010 witnessed one of the worst crisis of confidence in the global financial sector. The availability of international credit was a concern as doubts of sovereign defaults were being constantly raised in the market place. To counter the crisis, US and EU took proactive measures by introducing massive liquidity into the system besides guaranteeing smooth transition to near normalcy. Although, the worst seemed to be behind us, there is no tangible proof of job creation in the global economy. The economic data emerging from the developed economies are confusing with jobless recovery & lower consumer spending.

As the global economy was reeling under severe financial strain with de-growth, our economy remained resilient attracting foreign capital. It was mainly on account of Governments initiative of providing fiscal stimulus in two stages viz. across the board reduction in indirect taxes & stepping up infrastructure spending. The Central Bank also did its bit by pursuing a relaxed monetary policy making available credit at lower interest rates propping up domestic demand. The cumulative action resulted in economy posting a GDP growth of 7.40% in the backdrop of gloomy global economic scenario. The growth achieved is commendable considering the fact that monsoons during the year failed impacting Kharif crop. Inflation, especially food inflation continued to remained high, a worry for Central Bank and the Government.

The year also witnessed Rupee appreciating against the greenback from a level of over Rs 50/- in March 2009 to a level of Rs 44.90/- in March 2010. The appreciation in rupee gave a rude shock for our export sector which under performed badly during the period.
