India - Current Account (billions of U.S. Dollars)

The economy recovered above its pre-pandemic level in FY 2021, which ended in March this year. Turning to the first quarter of FY 2022, GDP growth is likely to speed up considerably. Growth in the industrial sector accelerated in April, suggesting it weathered the disruption to power supply caused by record-breaking temperatures well. Moreover, looser Covid-19 restrictions are boosting domestic demand, helping to push the services PMI to an over 11-year high in May. Demand will also be supported by new measures to combat rising inflation, including cuts to fuel duty, a doubling of the fertilizer subsidy, an export ban on wheat and cuts to import tariffs for some raw materials. That said, inflation remained at a near-decade high in May, which together with higher interest rates will be capping momentum.
