The Asian Development Bank has cut its economic growth forecast for India to 7.2% for 2022-23 from 7.5% estimated in April because of higher-than-expected inflation and monetary tightening.

It also lowered the GDP growth estimate for 2023-24 to 7.8% from the 8% estimated earlier.

Raised the inflation forecast for India to 6.7% for FY23 from the 5.8 % estimated earlier.

Private investment would soften due to the higher cost of borrowing for firms as the RBI continues to raise policy rates to contain inflation.
