Sanjeev Krishan, Chairman, PwC India
“Economic Survey 2023 presents an upbeat growth forecast of 6.5% as a baseline as the lagged impact of reforms implemented over the past 6 years pays off as the strains on the economy from the pandemic, high commodity prices and risks of a global slowdown ease off. It is rightly assumed that if assumptions on the external and demand fronts hold true, strong bank and corporate balance sheets will add to government investment to generate a boost in private investment."

Biz2credit and Biz2X's Rohit Arora on eco survey
Rohit Arora, CEO and co-founder of Biz2credit and Biz2X, said: “The Economic Survey has estimated India's growth at 6.5% in 2023-24, compared to 7% in the current fiscal year and 8.7% in 2021-22. Nominal gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to be 11% in the next fiscal year.
The good news is that India's post-COVID economic recovery has been robust and momentum is building. Much of this growth can be attributed to rising private consumption, higher capital spending, firming corporate balance sheets, credit growth to small businesses (up 30.5% between January and November 2022) and the return of migrant workers to cities and towns.
The focus on investment spending driven growth will enable India to keep the differential between growth and interest rates positive. A positive growth rate differential will help keep debt levels sustainable. I also believe that the supply-side reforms that the government is about to announce will bring long-term positive benefits to the economy. However, as the survey rightly pointed out, the economy needs to remain cautious on CPI inflation.

Vinod Nair on Economic Survey
Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services said: “Economic surveys are optimistic that India will continue to grow at a healthy rate in the medium term, led by consumption and investment. And growth can increase to up to 7 to 8 percent in the future. The fundamentals of the Indian economy are sound, but the concern in the short to medium term is the prolonged widening current account deficit, which could impact growth and INR depreciation. For the budget, FY24 will be challenging to plan spending due to a near-term slowdown in the economy, high core inflation and a fiscal deficit."

Bharat Rashtra Samithi to boycott President Murmu's joint address to Parliament today
Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) will boycott the President's address today. A BRS source confirmed to ANI: "The BRS will boycott the President's address before the joint session of Parliament as a sign of protest at the NDA government's failures on all governance fronts."
Asked why they chose to jump address the president, who holds the country's highest constitutional office, BRS Lok Sabha MP Ranjith Reddy said there were good reasons to boycott the speech. "Even the governor of Telangana is a constitutional authority, but you see what she's done. That's good reason for us to boycott [the president's address]," Reddy said.
The BJP-led central government and the BRS regime in Telangana have been at odds for some time, with Prime Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao skipping several meetings chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
