RBI Lowers GDP Growth Projection To 9.5 Pc For 2021-22

The Reserve Bank on Friday lowered the country’s growth projection for the current financial year to 9.5 per cent from 10.5 per cent estimated earlier, amid uncertainties created by the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic.

The apex bank also projected the retail inflation at 5.1 per cent in the current financial year ending March 31, 2022.

 Addressing the media after the meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said the sudden rise in COVID-19 infections, and fatalities has impaired the near nascent recovery that was underway, but has not snuffed it out.

The impulses of growth are still alive, he said, and added that the aggregate supply conditions have shown resilience in the face of the second wave.
