This is Part I of two-part article revisiting critical economic decisions that eventually led to minus 23.9% growth in Q1 of FY21. Blaming exogenous factors (pandemic) or intense lockdown is merely an excuse to divert attention from government's ineptitude and thwart meaningful debate

Gross mismanagement of the economy, starting with demonetisation in November 2016 and continued with untimely, unplanned and sudden nation-wide lockdown has compounded the GST problem. Centre's refusal to pay compensation to states now may derail it completely
