AN ECONOMIC OVERVIEW GLOBAL ECONOMY

The global economy witnessed a healthy growth during the first half of 2018 but the same momentum is unlikely to remain during 2019. Growth for 2018 was pegged at 3.6% while the same is projected at 2.6% by World Bank. The major headwinds to growth are ominous signals of slowing down in the U.S economy coupled with a trade war between U.S and China.

INDIAN ECONOMY

This was primarily owing to the lackluster performance of the economy in the second half of the fiscal (Oct18-Mar19) - GDP growth under 7%. This was mainly due to the poor performance of farm, mining, and manufacturing sectors. Indias industrial production (IIP) growth slowed to a three-year low of 3.6% in the 2018-19 as against 4.4% in the previous fiscal.
