Nirmala Sitharaman, the Union Finance Minister, put the Economic Survey 2022–23 on the table in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
The Economic Survey said that India’s economy will grow by 6.5% in 2023-24, compared to 7% this fiscal year and 8.7% in 2021-22. The pre-Budget Economic Survey said that India will keep growing faster than any other major economy in the world. It also said that the current account deficit could keep growing as long as the prices of commodities around the world stay high, which could put pressure on the Rupee.
