IMF has raised India's GDP growth projection for FY24 to 7.8%. This significant upward revision reflects India's robust domestic demand, strong public investment and monetary measures.

While other BRICS nations like Brazil, Russia, China, and South Africa saw growth rates of 2.9%, 3.6%, 5.2%, and 0.6%, respectively, India achieved higher growth. Emerging markets averaged 4.3% growth, while Asian EMs saw 5.6% growth, but India surpassed both, showcasing a dynamic economic growth.


Not only in the IMF’s report, but India's economic performance has been lauded by global organizations. The Asian Development Bank projects 7.6% GDP growth for 2023-24 and 7% for 2024-25. The World Bank estimates 7.5% growth for FY24 and 6.6% for FY25. Fitch Ratings forecasts 7.8% for FY24 and 7.0% for FY25. These upgrades highlight India's robust economic expansion.


The upward projection of India's economic growth by the IMF is a historic milestone that underscores India's rise as a major global economic power. This achievement is a testament to the country's resilience, innovation and commitment to sustainable development. This milestone reflects India's successful transformation under Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji’s leadership driven by strong public support.
