Global Review

The World has witnessed an exceptional uncertainty due to the outbreak and spread of the global pandemic . As per the World Economic Outlook by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) "the global economy is projected to grow 5.5 percent in the year 2021 and 4.2 percent in the year 2022 . The forecast in the year 2021 may improve based on expectations of a vaccine-powered strengthening activities later in the year 2021 and additional policy support in a few large economies . "

The projected growth recovery in the year 2021 follows a severe collapse in the year 2020 that has had acute adverse impacts on women, youth, poor, informally employed people, and those who work in contact-intensive sectors . The global growth contraction for the year 2020 is estimated at -3.5 % . The strength of the recovery is projected to vary significantly across countries, depending on access to medical interventions and effectiveness of policy support

Indian Economy

The Indian economy contracted by 7.3% in FY21, as compared to 4.2% growth recorded in the previous fiscal year. The first half of the fiscal year witnessed overall economic slowdown, due to COVID-19 onset resulting in stringent lockdowns severely impacting economic activity, bringing manufacturing and trading activities to a halt As the economy emerged out of the pandemic-induced recession in the second half, it registered a positive GDP growth of 0.4% in Q3 and 1. 6% in Q4 on the back of a tailored fiscal stimulus of Rs . 20 trillion under ‘Self-Reliant India movement, robust financial market and structural reforms initiated by the government, along with revival of consumer confidence The growth reflected through uptick in manufacturing activity and GST revenues crossing Rs 1 trillion mark for a stretch of six months since October 2020 and hitting a record figure of Rs 1 23 trillion in March 2021

The resurgence of COVID-19 cases since March 2021 is posing a serious risk to economic recovery and weighing down Indias GDP growth projections for FY22 . Considering the impact on economically important states, Q1FY22 could witness lower economic activity and demand than anticipated due to stringent lockdowns and restrictions Multiple states have been enforcing lockdowns of varying severity, leading to reduced mobility and unemployment, leading to economic distress

However, the government has taken and taking several initiatives with the objective of revitalizing the economy. Proactive measures taken by the Government is expected to offer a sustained long-term recovery of the economy Favorable fiscal and monetary reforms, ease in credit policies and concentrated stimulus packages for distressed sectors and vaccination roll-out are expected to enable revival in economic growth
