Next year it can be between 5.5 to 6.1 percent GDP growth rate
Deloitte said that due to the continued continuation of global economic uncertainty, India’s growth factors will start to have a negative impact. Deloitte estimates that India’s growth rate will be between 6.5 and 7.1 percent in the current financial year, while it will be between 5.5 and 6.1 percent in the next year. India’s GDP growth rate was 8.7 percent in 2021-22.

Deloitte India economist Rumki Majumdar said, “We expect the consumer sector to get a boost from the upcoming festive season.” This sector is yet to show a sustained revival. Loans to industry and service sector have increased significantly, which shows that the investment prospects of the private sector are better. Sustained demand growth is necessary to increase investment. Growth is unlikely to be supported by exports and government spending due to slowing global demand and limited resources.
