Population in India
India - PopulationOn 1 February, the government unveiled an expansionary interim budget for fiscal year 2019, which will run from April 2019 to March 2020, that was later passed by parliament on 13 February. The budget is considered as interim because the government that emerges from general elections in April and May could make modifications to it upon assuming power, while its fiscal sustainability has been brought into question despite the largely healthy macroeconomic backdrop. In January, economic activity in the private sector increased at a strong pace due to a stellar showing from manufacturing businesses; on the other hand, activity among service businesses grew at a slower pace than in December. Meanwhile, in October–December, the economy likely grew at a robust pace. This was partly thanks to lower oil prices, which should have supported consumption growth, although lending constraints in the financial sector could have hampered household spending. In other news, a terrorist attack in Kashmir on 14 February severely hit India-Pakistan relations.
