The Review of GDP of the Indian Economy

  • The previous year’s Economic Survey 2015-16 had predicted that the Indian economy will achieve the growth rate in the range of 7 to 7.75 percent during the financial year 2016-17.
  • As per the estimates released by CSO, the economy has accelerated as per the expectations and registered the growth of 7.2 percent in the first half of the financial year 2016-17.
  • Earlier, it was speculated that the Indian economy will experience a slowdown in the growth rate that could be lower than the CSO’s first advance estimates due to the huge demonetisation drive in which the higher currency notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 were wiped out from the circulation in the economy.
  • The first advance estimate came in early January 2017 which does not reflect the effects of demonetisation because the available data for the estimates were of the period before the demonetisation taken place.
  • As per the first advance estimate (AE), the growth rate of gross value added (GVA) at constant basic prices for 2016-17 is placed at 7.0 per cent, as against 7.2 per cent in 2015-16.
