INDIAN ECONOMIC OVERVIEW

India joined the global economy in an unprecedented contraction in 2020-21, dragged down by the COVID-19 pandemic. Headline inflation was elevated for most part of the year led by supply chain disruptions due to the pandemic and spikes in key food prices. The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth for the financial year 2020-21 was at -7.3% as compared to 4.0% in 2019-20. The COVID-19 pandemic and the multi-phased lockdown imposed to curb its spread has resulted in a devastating blow to the Indian economy. (Source: RBI, World Bank)
