  4. rowth may pick up, but concerns remain Growth may pick up, but concerns remain India may well clock the highest growth rate globally, but more is needed to create jobs and reduce poverty S. UBHODEEP

  5. With more than one quarter of the year and two months of the monsoon over, it is time to take a look at what the whole year is going to be like. Are there signs of recovery? If there are, are they robust? What are the short- and medium-term concerns of the country? Sectoral trends The monsoon has been somewhat below expectations -the overall rainfall deficiency was 3% (as of July 25). Though it may seem negligible, it has to be noted that there were 11 meteorological divisions which were deficient. The area sown has come down. Rice-producing Bihar, for instance, has been severely affected UBHODEEP

  6. The services sector may perform better because public expenditure will be maintained at a high level This is to be expected, as this happens to be the year before the elections. As for the industrial sector, we have data for the Index of Industrial Production (IIP) for the first quarter substantial improvement over the corresponding period of the previous year. UBHODEEP

  7. It is important to remember that the correlation between the IIP and national income data on manufacturing is poor. The combined revenues and profit of 370 large companies have shown better performance in the first quarter, even though they are on a weak base The problems of the goods and services tax (GST) may have been largely overcome, but it is still a work in progress. Looking at the overall GDP, after several quarters of low growth, there was a strong pick-up in the last quarter of 2017-18. If this momentum is maintained, the growth rate (2018-19) will certainly be above 7%. How much higher above 790 will depend on a number of factors. UBHODEEP

  8. External environment Trade wars have already started and can get worse. Country-specific sanctions such as those against Iran As a net importer, India's balance of payments can take a beating if crude prices rise again. India's current account deficit was as low as 0.6% of GDP in 2016-17. It rose to 1.9% of GDP in 2017-18, mainly because of crude price rise. India's trade deficit has always remained high. In 2016-17, the merchandise trade deficit was 4.8% and rose to 6% of GDP the S. next year. UBHODEEP

  9. The answer lies in raising our export growth which has shown severe swings in recent years. The fall in crude oil prices had also affected our export growth earlier. There is an inescapable need to raise our export growth rate With a rising trade deficit and some outflow of capital, the rupee has depreciated. smooth and there are no violent fluctuations Improved efficiency in production and better infrastructure are equally The RBI should act only to ensure that the adjustment is important. Maintenance of domestic stability also plays a key role. UBHODEEP

  10. Reviving the banking system non-performing asset (NPA) ratio dampening effect on the provision of new credit. Recapitalisation of banks has become an urgent necessity. Unless the banking system recovers fast, it is difficult to sustain a high growth of the industrial sector. UBHODEEP

  11. The second concern relates to the impact of the proposed minimum support prices (MSPs) for various agricultural commodities The MSPs have been raised sharply in the case of some commodities. Except in the case of rice and wheat (where there is unlimited procurement at MSPs), there is no indication of how the MSPs will be implemented in relation to other commodities One is the M.P. model where the State pays the difference between market price and MSP. But this can turn out to be a serious burden if market prices fall steeply. The other alternative is for the government to procure excess production over normal production so that market prices rise. This alternative may be less burdensome. S. UBHODEEP
