The Indian economy may take at least a year or two to recover from impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
Meanwhile, the lockdown measures imposed due to Covid-19 have caused the growth outlook to further degrade and remain subdued for a longer period. Though there is an expectation of returning to normalcy, downside risks to domestic growth remain significant, as there is still heightened uncertainty around. The overall GDP growth for 2020-21 is estimated to be negative, and the economic impact may last for a minimum of 12 to 24 months based on the severity of the pandemic. However, the Indian economy may witness some green shoots in between but is likely to remain subdued overall.
