GDP stimulus

  • Projecting negative (-) growth of 9.5 percent of real GDP in 2020-2021, Shaktikanta Das said; “The deep contraction in the June 2020-2021 quarter was left behind us; Rays of light are visible in the flattening of the active workload curve across the country.

  • According to Das, the MPC has decided to view the current rise in as transitory and to address the most urgent need to revive growth and mitigate the impact of Covid. GDP fell 23.9% in the June quarter.

Inflation on the verge of falling

  • RBI projections indicate that inflation will approach the target in the fourth quarter of 2020-2021.
  • In the September 2020 RBI survey cycle, households expect inflation to decline slightly over the next three months, a hopeful sign that supply chains will rebound.
  • Retail trade inflation is projected at 6.8% for the second quarter of 2020-2021, 5.4-4.5% for the first six months of 2020-2021 and 4.3% for the first quarter of 2021-2022, the RBI said.

On the recovery

  • Das said the economy is likely to experience a three-speed recovery, with individual sectors showing variable rates, depending on the specific realities of the sector.

  • The second category of “striking” sectors would include those in which activity gradually normalizes. The third category of sectors would include those that face “great efforts” but can save their sleeves.

On the economy

  • The is entering a decisive phase in the fight against the pandemic.
  • Compared to pre-Covid levels, several high-frequency indicators point to a slowdown in contractions in various sectors of the economy and the emergence of growth impulses.
