'India to grow at robust pace'

The Indian economy is expected to grow at a steady pace. According to the Advanced Estimates released by Central Statistics Office (CSO), the growth of GDP at constant (2011-12) market prices is estimated at 7.6 per cent in 2015-16. This indicates that despite uncertainties in the global economy, Indian economy stands out as a haven of macroeconomic stability, resilience and optimism and can be expected to register GDP growth that could be in the range of 7 to 7.75 per cent in the coming year, Minister of State for Finance Jayant Sinha said in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

The International Monetary Fund, in their World Economic Outlook Update (January 2016) has indicated that India is projected to continue growing at a robust pace.

As per the Budget 2016-17, the fiscal deficit as a ratio of GDP at current market prices is estimated at 3.9 per cent for the year 2015-16 (revised estimates). According to the Advanced Estimates released by Central Statistics Office (CSO), the growth of GDP at constant (2011-12) market prices is estimated at 7.6 per cent in 2015-16. This estimation has been done in accordance with the international best practices.

The fixed investment (measured by Gross Fixed Capital Formation) by the private corporate sector increased from 11.7 per cent of the GDP at current market prices in 2013-14 to 12.3 per cent in 2014-15 (the latest year for which data is available), despite indications of constraints like stressed assets. Investment depends on various factors that, interalia, include: expectations of demand viz-a-vis the available capacity, expected profit, business climate and interest rate.

The Government has taken a number of steps to improve the business climate and boost investment in the economy which, among other, include: the “Make in India” initiative along with the attendant facilitatory measures for a more conducive environment for investment; Start-up India initiative to boost entrepreneurship and creation of jobs; opening up of specified sectors for foreign direct investment; and investment-augmenting tax measures.

The Reserve Bank of India reduced the policy repo rates by 125 basis points during 2015, Sinha said in the written reply. (SH)
