RBI Updates:

  • The slowdown in the Indian economy could be cyclical, with deep structural problems requiring urgent reforms, according to the Annual Report of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), released on Thursday. The macroeconomic environment remains. “Unsettled and financial markets are experiencing considerable flux” as the financial year 2019-20 progresses. While consumption drives the demand in India, “phases of sustained high growth in the economy are usually triggered by investment upturns and vice versa”.
  • Reviving consumption demand and private investment has assumed the highest priority in 2019-20. This may involve strengthening the banking and non-banking sectors, a big push for spending on infrastructure and implementation of much needed structural reforms in the areas of labour laws, taxation, and other legal reforms, which will also enhance ease of doing business in pursuit of fulfilling the vision of India becoming a $ 5 trillion economy by 2024-25
