Current Account in India
India - Current Account (billions of U.S. Dollars)The economy is likely contracting sharply in Q1 FY 2020, which runs from April to June. The government announced on 18 May that it was extending the national lockdown—which has been in place since 25 March to curb the spread of coronavirus—for a fourth time up until 31 May, although states have been given more control over re-opening their respective economies. Economic data paints a grim picture: The private-sector PMI slumped in April to the lowest reading since current records began in December 2005, while industrial production plunged year-on-year in March at the fastest pace since at least April 2006. Exacerbating matters, Cyclone Amphan caused severe damage to life and infrastructure in the north east in late May. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on 12 May that total fiscal and monetary policy stimulus now amounts to 10% of GDP.
