Many indicators like consumption (demand), private investment, number of new projects and GDP growth rate (6.8% in 2018-19) are slowing down. Different institutions like Moody’s and economists are cutting India’s projected GDP growth rate. However this downturn is expected to be a short term phenomenon.
