The economc research council has projected Centre's fiscal deficit this financial year to be 5% of GDP


The National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) has projected that the Indian economy would grow at 6.2 per cent in 2013-14, led by a reasonable growth in agriculture.

It has projected the Centre's fiscal deficit this financial year to be 5 per cent of the GDP, higher than the government's target of 4.8 per cent.

In its April 2013 Quarterly Review of the Economy, the think-tank projected agriculture sector growth at 3.2 per cent this year, against a growth of 1.8 per cent in 2012-13 as per Advance Estimates. In its January forecast it had projected the growth at 2.9 per cent.

NCAER has slightly lowered its projection for industry growth from 4.5 per cent estimated in last quarter to 4.4 per cent in the latest estimates, while the forecast for services was left unchanged at 7.7 per cent.

As a result, the projection for overall growth its the latest review is the same as that of the preliminary estimates in its quarterly review in January 2013.

The Prime Minister of Economic Advisory Council (PMEAC) had estimated the growth rate to be 6.4 per cent in 2013-14, saying that the decline in economic growth had bottomed out.

Wholesale Price Index (WPI)-based inflation for 2012-13 is projected at 7.7 per cent year-on-year. Inflation in 2013-14 is projected to be 5.9 per cent, higher than its projection of 5% in January 2013.

The review said that the reduction in CRR by 50 basis points in January 2013 has helped the commercial banks in reducing the lower end of base rates in February 2013 from 9.75 per cent to 9.5 per cent.
