The government has given economic stimulus and a wide array of relaxations to the corporate sector. In particular, the MSME sector has been given a bundle of incentives to cope up with the covid19 exigencies. The Economic Survey (2021) envisages a V-shaped recovery in the current fiscal. The International Monetary Fund (IMF), in its economic outlook (April, 2021), has projected Indias GDP growth rate to be around 12.5 per cent in 2021.
