(d) 9.0%

Answer & Explanation

Exp. Fitch projected India’s GDP growth rate at 7.8% for 2022-23

Fitch Ratings has decreased its GDP growth prediction for 2022-23 from 8.5 percent expected in March to 7.8 percent.

While India’s debt-to-GDP ratio has been reduced in the short term due to high nominal GDP growth, Fitch Ratings estimates that greater subsidies and fuel excise tax cuts will cost around 0.8 percent of GDP this year to counteract the rise in consumer prices. This will increase the Centre’s budget deficit to 6.8% of GDP, up from the 6.4 percent objective set in the Budget for 2022-23.

In the medium term, Fitch Ratings expects India to grow at a rate of around 7% between 2023-24 and 2026-27, supported by the government’s infrastructure push, reform agenda, and easing financial sector pressures.

While the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) now anticipates inflation to average 6.7 percent through 2022-23, Fitch predicts it to be higher, at 6.9 percent, compared to the median rate of 4.9 percent for BBB-rated countries, owing to strong increases in global commodity prices and underlying demand pressures.
