India's previous recessions and how bad it might get in 2020

India is set to face a recession this financial year since economic activity has come to a complete standstill due to coronavirus lockdown. The earlier four recessions (in fiscal 1958, 1966, 1973 and 1980) were attributed to poor monsoon and energy crisis. But this time around the situation looks a lot worse.

This BusinessToday.In infographic looks into previous recessions and how bad it might get this year.
