FICCI's latest Economic Outlook Survey puts across the GDP growth estimate for the year 2014-15 at 5.3%, with a minimum and a maximum range of 4.9% and 5.8%. This is a tad lower than the 5.5% growth estimate put out by the economists in the previous survey round and is mainly on account of bleak prospects for performance of the agriculture sector due to sub-par monsoon forecast.
Regarding the performance of the industrial sector this year. The median forecast for industrial growth for 2014-15 is pegged at 3.1% and for agricultural sector at 2.1%. Further, services sector growth is expected at 7.0% this year and is only marginally higher than 6.8% growth recorded in 2013-14.
On Inflation, the El Nino effect is expected to fuel inflationary pressure going ahead.
