India’s annual pre-budget Economic Survey is likely to peg GDP growth at 6-6.8% for FY24, according to media reports. The Economic Survey, which will be presented by the Finance Minister before the budget, is the government’s review of how the economy performed in the past year.

On top of that, growth is expected to remain strong in FY24 beginning April 1 led by a pick-up in lending by banks and improved capital spending by corporations.
