China seemed to be coming closer to a long‐term solution to the trade

IMF estimated the growth of the Indian economy at 7.3% and projected

prospects of the Indian economy.
According to media reports, the government is planning to transfer cash
to farmers instead of giving them subsidies in order to ease their financial
burden. The government is considering combining all farm subsidies
which includes fertilizer costs and pay farmers the required cash. The
additional cost will remain limited at Rs. 70,000 crore annually following
the full roll out of the program. It needs to be noted that the government
has surpassed its annual budget deficit target and thus has little room for
spending in the current year.
According to media reports, the government is considering lowering
customs duty on certain medical items in the upcoming union budget.
The objective of the move is to give a boost to the domestic
manufacturing of such goods. The move is also expected to provide
support to the government’s Make in India initiative. It needs to be noted
that the government till recently has set up a National Medical Devices
Promotion Council in order to bring investments, boost manufacturing
and promote exports of the fast‐growing sector.
According to a domestic research agency, cumulative fiscal deficit of
states in India is expected to increase following the announcement of

Apr compared with 2.8% expected for 2018‐19.
