With significant growth enablers, India is well poised to be a developed nation by 2047, when it marks 100 years of Independence.

Session: Tracking India’s Growth in a Volatile World: Outlook for the Indian Economy in FY24
After staging a smart recovery from the pandemic, India’s economic growth rate has risen back to pre-pandemic levels, on the back of productivity-enhancing reforms and interventions introduced by both the Government and the Reserve Bank of India. As we step into FY24, the risks are shifting, from pandemic-driven to geopolitical risks, and the Indian economy is widely expected to slow down in FY24, after growing at around 7.0% in FY23. However, even though India’s domestic economic growth is expected to decelerate, it will continue to remain the world’s fastest-growing major economy.
What will be the key drivers for India’s growth in FY24? What will be the extent of the impact of the global flux and how can the Government help ameliorate the fallout?

What structural changes are required in the existing financial sector architecture to achieve the goal of a competitive Indian economy and Indian Industry? How can policy support this transformation and what capacity-building measures will be required to capitalize on that change?
