As per the second advance estimates of national income for FY2018 released by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) on 28th February, 2018 real GDP growth for FY2018 at 6.6%, which is 0.5% less than the 7.1% growth witnessed in FY2017.

NBFCs continued to grow their share in the financial services industry. Data published by the RBI in its Financial Stability Reports dated 30th June, 2017 and 21st December, 2017 show that the NBFCs have outperformed scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) on growth in advances, asset quality and profitability.

This growth momentum of NBFCs should result in their share in the financial services sector increasing in the near future.
