New Delhi, May 28: Industry chambers Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) on Monday said that it expects India’s economy to grow at 7.3-7.7 per cent in 2018-19 on the back of “sustained structural reforms”, recovery in global markets and a normal monsoon.
The industry body in a statement said that “sustained structural reforms” have led to a rebound in the country’s economy as businesses across several key sectors experience firm growth trends.
“The impact of sustained structural reforms is now being felt on the ground as a mammoth economy is turning around,” CII President Rakesh Bharti Mittal was quoted as saying in a statement.
“Businesses across several key sectors are experiencing firm growth in sales and orders, indicating better capacity utilisation and higher investment expectations.”
According to CII, strong rural consumption is reflected in sectors such as consumer non-durables, two-wheelers and tractors.
“The feedback from businesses is that the rebound in the economy is now firmly entrenched and the positive impacts of the actions taken by the government, including major structural reforms, are being felt on the ground,” Mittal added.
The industry body credited the growth trend on prudent macroeconomic management which it said has encouraged “growth and investments for capacity expansion are being planned as demand conditions recover”. (IANS)
