Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - REGION HINDUSTANTIMES -

The Eco­nomic Sur­vey fore­sees In­dia’s GDP to grow by 7% to 7.5% in 2018-19. The govern­ment is of the opin­ion that in­di­rect tax pay­ers will in­crease. The sur­vey says that the worst is over and the In­dian econ­omy is poised to re­bound to grow. It would be dif­fi­cult for the govern­ment to ad­here to the fis­cal con­sol­i­da­tion roadmap next year due to the im­pend­ing gen­eral elec­tions. The eco­nomic sur­vey has fo­cused on ed­u­ca­tion, em­ploy­ment and agri­cul­ture. The ill ef­fect of de­mon­eti­sa­tion and GST had af­fected the peo­ple and em­ploy­ment has come down. The FDI will have its im­pact on small busi­ness­men.
