Moody’s prediction on growth rate of India’s economy

By IndianMandarins 11 Oct 2019

Though the government is continuously grappling with the pressure of taking measure to accelerate the growth rate of the country as leading rating agency Moody’s has also predicted the growth rate of the country for 2019-20 financial year below 6 per cent that is 5.8 per cent.

Moody’s is of the view that due to some factors impacting for long term the slowdown in Indian economy is likely to be dragged for a slightly longer time. Even Reserve Bank of India in its appraisal meeting for monetary policy in the current fiscal reduced 6.1 per cent.

Moody’s in its report says that the main reason behind slow down is slump in investment which has brought down the number of employment. This has also impacted consumption in the rural area. There are several reasons for slowdown some are domestic but some of them are going to have long-term impact.

Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that Indian Economic Service (IES) cadre may be sanctioned 24 additional posts in the rank of Additional Secretary (HAG) & Joint Secretary (SAG).
