FY21 has been one of the most challenging years for the Indian economy since independence. The economic slowdown on the back of the COVID pandemic led to an unprecedented contraction in real GDP by 23.9% in Q1FY21. Since then, however, a strong recovery has been visible with only a 7.5% contraction in GDP in Q2 and prospects of a YoY growth picking up with every passing month. While the Union Budget 2021 has given a further fillip to the expected growth revival in FY22 and beyond, there are valid concerns on the sharply higher fiscal deficit and the inflationary headwinds over the medium term.
