"The impacts will be felt in 2020, with intensified communal and sectarian instability, as well as foreign policy and economic setbacks," the authors have stated.

Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman is set to deliver the Union Budget 2020-21 on Feb 1, 2020. Analysts and economists would watch the fiscal deficit number very closely.

Sovereign Rating Agencies would look for fiscal deficit discipline and India must avoid a rating watch. Many analysts expect the fiscal deficit number to be closer to the 3.7 to 3.8 per cent mark. What would also be eagerly watched is the fiscal deficit number projections for 2020-21.

In any case, a smart budget is expected that will curb the fiscal deficit and push India towards growth.
