India’s growth momentum can be sustained in FY 2023-24: RBI


Mumbai/New Delhi : India’s growth momentum is likely to be sustained in FY2023-24 on the back of strong macroeconomic policies and softening commodity prices. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said this in its annual report.

In its report released on Tuesday, RBI has also expressed the expectation of reduction in inflation in the current financial year 2023-24. However, the report noted that there could be downside risks to growth if financial market volatility is triggered by slower global growth, prolonged geopolitical tensions and stress in the global financial system.

According to the report released by the Reserve Bank, due to strong macroeconomic policies, softening commodity prices, strong financial sector, healthy corporate sector, continued emphasis on the quality of government expenditure, restructuring of global supply chains and moderation in inflation. The pace of India’s economic growth rate is expected to be maintained in the financial year 2023-24.

According to the report, with a stable exchange rate and a normal monsoon, inflation is expected to go down further in FY 2023-24 if there is no El Nino event.

In the RBI report, the wholesale inflation rate has been estimated to come down to less than 5.2 percent, which was 6.7 percent in the last financial year 2022-23. The Annual Report of RBI is a statutory report of its Central Board of Directors.
