Unlike last year when 8-8.5% growth was projected, this year’s survey showed less conviction on growth. It pegged real GDP growth in the range of 6-6.8% depending on the trajectory of economic and political developments globally . The survey report is bullish on private capital expenditure picking up thanks to cleaning up of the private sector balance sheet. It said the financial sector stress seen in the previous decade — rising bad loans, low credit uptake and falling private investments — is now behind us. Private investment, according to the survey report, has been aided by the government capex which increased 2.7 times in the past seven years. The capex thrust of the government was part of a strategic package aimed at crowding-in private investment, it noted. Chief Economic Advisor to the government Dr V Anantha Nageswaran told reporters that capital investment by the private sector is beginning to kick in despite several shocks coming one after another. “Once the shocks dissipate, I expect India’s credit and capex cycle to gather more steam than what they have today he added. ,” The CEA said the recessionary press u r e s wo rl dw i d e could prove beneficial for India as global commodity prices, especially crude oil, would remain at moderate levels. He says as long as crude oil prices remain below $100 a barrel, it won’t hit India’s growth prospects. While talking about structural reforms such as the GST rollout and the IBC undertaken over the past eight years, the survey also sets the agenda for next round of reforms – administrative, contract enforcement, dismantling licence, inspection & compliance, access to clean energy and energy security, among others.
