The Economic Survey 2021 has forecast India real GDP growth at 10% to 11% and nominal GDP growth at 15%, largely due to base effect on the back of negative grpwth seen in fiscal 2020-21 due to Covid pandemic. Trend grpwth after fiscal 2021-22 js seen at 6.5% to 7%. Inflation too is expected at over 6% for fiscal 2021-22. Given that India GDP growth is seen at higher levels while US Fed and ECB keep rates at lows and pump in liquidity, capital flows can be strong and drive up the INR in the near term. However, the cost of growth will drive the INR value over the longer term as high fiscal deficit can lead to higher inflation that might drag sustainability of economic growth.
