Domestic economy is experiencing a turnaround but is still reeling under the impact ofuncertainties. RBI has projected Gross Value Added (GVA) growth of 7.3 % in 2017-18 ascompared to 6.6% in 2016-17. Over the medium run the roll out of the Goods and ServicesTax (GST) and enacting other structural reforms should push the economy towards a highergrowth path. However capacity underutilization and delayed revival of capital investmentstill pose major challenge to the growth of Indian industry.
