India Ratings and Research reduces GDP growth forecast

New Delhi: India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) reduced the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth forecast for the 2022-23 financial year to 7 to  7.2%. Earlier in January  the rating agency predicted a growth of 7.6%.

The growth projection was reduced due to global geo-political situation arising out of the Russia-Ukraine war. According to Ind-Ra, the crude oil price may surge either for  three months or six months and this will affect the domestic economy. If the crude oil price is high for next three months then the GDP growth rate may be at 7.2% and if crude oil price remain high for six months then the growth rate may be at 7%.
