ANSWER-D Until early 2016, India's growth had been accelerating when growth in other countries was decelerating. But then the converse happened. The world economy embarked on a synchronous recovery, but India's GDP growth-and indeed a number of other indicators such as industrial production, credit, and investment- decelerated. There are five reasons for this First, India's monetary conditions decoupled from the rest of the world. Until the middle of 2016,real policy interest rates were following the global trend downwards. Since then, the downward drift has continued in most other countries, with rates falling. But in India, for the same period, average real interest rates increased. This tightening of monetary conditions contributed to the divergence in economic activity in two ways. First, it depressed consumption and investment compared to that in other countries. Second, it attracted capital inflows especially into debt instruments, which caused the increase in demand for rupee and consequently rupee appreciates which causes dampening of exports. The second and third factors were one-off policy actions: Demonetization and GST. Demonetization temporarily reduced demand and hampered production, especially in the informal sector, which transacts mainly in cash. On the other hand, GST was introduced, affecting supply chains. The fourth factor exerting a drag on the Indian economy was the TBS challenge. This has been a drag for some time and its effects have cumulated as the non-performing assets have increased, the financial situation of stressed firms and banks have steadily worsened. This has reduced investment and consequently economic activity and, hence growth. The final factor was oil prices increase since 2017.It is estimated that a $10 per barrel increase in the price of oil reduces growth by 0.2-0.3 percentage points, increases WPI inflation by about 1.7 percentage points and worsens the CAD by about $9-10 billion dollars.
