India to grow at 7.3% in 2018: IMF

India to grow at 7.3% in 2018: IMF

Washington - The International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecast a growth rate of 7.3 per cent for India in the current year of 2018 and that of 7.4 per cent in 2019.

In 2017, India had clocked a 6.7 per cent growth rate.

“India's growth is expected to increase to 7.3 per cent in 2018 and to 7.4 per cent in 2019 (slightly lower than in the April 2018 World Economic Outlook (WEO) for 2019, given the recent increase in oil prices and the tightening of global financial conditions), up from 6.7 per cent in 2017,” the IMF said in its latest World Economic Outlook report.

This acceleration, the world body said, reflected a rebound from transitory shocks (the currency exchange initiative and implementation of the national Goods and Services Tax), with strengthening investment and robust private consumption.

If projections are true, then India would regain the tag of fastest growing major economies of the world, crossing China with more than 0.7 percentage point in 2018 and an impressive 1.2 percentage point growth lead in 2019. 

China was the fastest growing economy in 2017 as it was ahead of India by 0.2 percentage points. The IMF has lowered the growth projections for both India and China by 0.4 per cent and 0.32 per cent, respectively, from its annual April's World Economic Outlook.
