India will overtake the UK to become the third largest economy in the world by the end of this decade. So both countries need to work together. British High Commissioner Alex Ellis said the two economies are roughly the same size. But, India is growing rapidly and will overtake the UK.
In an India-UK event, he said that the UK has overtaken the European Union. So this is an opportunity that we can do really well with India because we have the political will. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Liz Truss spoke a week ago and it turned out very well. A Free Trade Agreement (FTA) is also expected between the two countries by Diwali this year. This will increase employment in the next 25 years as the economy grows.
Business expected to double
Trade between the two countries is expected to double by 2030. According to the report, more excellent economic connectivity between India and the UK helps in the diversification of the global supply chain and doing business. 618 UK companies in India provide 4.66 lakh jobs. Their turnover is Rs 3,634.9 billion.
ADB cuts growth rate
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has reduced India’s growth rate to 7 percent for 2022-23. Earlier it was estimated to be 7.2 percent. The bank said that due to inflation and rising interest rates, the growth rate of the economy would be affected.
- S&P said, even though the US and the euro area are heading towards recession, it will not affect the Indian economy.
NPAs will reach the lowest level of 10 years
Crisil said the bad bad loans (NPAs) of banks may fall by 0.90% to 5% in the current financial year. By March 2024, this could come down to 4%, which would be a decade low. For the week ended August 26, banks’ credit increased by 15.5%, while deposits grew by 9.5%. Due to increased demand for borrowings and currency notes in circulation, there will also be a liquidity crunch in the banking system in the second half. For the first time since May 2019, there was a shortfall of Rs 218 billion in liquidity on Tuesday. More money will come out of banks during the festive season. Banks had Rs 8 lakh crore in April.
