He said international organisations also believe that India is on its way to become the fastest-growing economy in the world.
The PM was referring to the recent International Monetary Fund (IMF) report that said India will grow at 9.5 per in the current fiscal. As per the IMF, India will become the fastest-growing economy among major economies of the world.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), during its Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) announcements last week, had also projected that India’s economy will grow at 9.5 per cent in the year FY22. The RBI also revised the Q2 GDP forecast from 7.3 per cent to 7.9 per cent; Q3 from 6.3 per cent to 6.8 per cent; and Q4 has been retained at 6.1 per cent.
