June 2023

Economic Outlook Note - India

Weak global demand and the effect of monetary policy tightening to manage inflationary pressures will constrain the economy in FY 2023-24, limiting real GDP growth to 6%.

This, along with improved global conditions, will help economic activity to accelerate, with growth of 7% in real GDP in FY 2024-25.
