IMPACT OF COVID-19 PANDEMIC

According to The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) the resurgence of Covid-19 has dented butnot debilitated economic activity in the first half of the first quarter of 2021-22.Although still extremely tentative the overall assessment is that the loss of momentum isnot as severe as it was at this time a year ago. The impact of the second wave on the realeconomy seems to be limited so far in comparison with the first wave. Evidently thelocalised nature of lockdowns better adaptation of people to work-from- home protocolsonline delivery models e-commerce and digital payments were at work. Real economyindicators moderated in April and May 2021 as many states-imposed restrictions to arrestthe renewed surge in infections.

"The second wave" has intensified in metros/cities and relative to the firstwave it has spread rapidly across states regions and into rural pockets. On the globalfront a strong bounce back in the US economy appears to be underway notching anannualised growth rate of 6.4% in Q1:2021 on the back of stimulus vaccinations and easingof lockdowns.

The British economy has emerged out of lockdown from the onset of Q2:2021. New surgesof the virus have pushed the Eurozone into a double-dip recession with widelydifferentiated growth profiles among members.

MSME sector the second highest employer after agriculture has been impacted very muchand would require financial assistance. The government might tweak the existing EmergencyCredit Line Guarantee Scheme to provide immediate help to the sector the sources added.Currently around 6.5 Cr Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) contribute 30% of theGDP Recently the RBI also announced a loan restructuring scheme for small borrowers amidthe pandemic.

However it is said that fiscal stimulus would be effective only once local lockdownsease and restrictions on business due to curfews are lifted. Most of the states haveimposed curfews in their states to contain spiraling COVID infections and deaths. Alsothe second COVID wave has dealt a blow to both consumer and investor sentiments whichalso need to be lifted.

It is understood that "Niti Aayog" is working on the focus areas of economyand what could be done to stimulate demand in sectors that have been impacted the most byCOVID. However rating agencies have lowered growth forecasts for India saying that thesecond wave of infections will hamper economic recovery. They however projected that thenegative impact on economic output will be limited to the April-June quarter. Moody's hasprojected growth of 9.3% for current fiscal lower than 13.7% estimated earlier.

S&P Global Ratings has said growth could drop to 9.8% in a 'moderate' scenario ofinfections and could be even as low as 8.2% in a 'severe' scenario. S&P had earlierestimated growth of 11% for the current fiscal. According to Fitch Ratings India's slowpace of vaccination could mean that the country remains vulnerable to further waves of thepandemic.

As per the official estimate the country's economy is projected to contract by 8% in2020-21.

Soon after the pandemic hit the country and a nationwide lockdown was imposed thegovernment in March 2020 announced a RS. 1.70 Lakh crore-Pradhan Mantri Garib KalyanYojana (PMGKP) to protect the poor and vulnerable from the impact of the pandemic. It wasfollowed by the "Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan" package in May 2020 largelyfocused on supply- side measures and long-term reforms. To boost consumption during thefestival season the government in October 2020 announced measures that were worth closeto Rs.73000 Cr to stimulate consumer spending in an effort to rein in the slowdown due tothe pandemic. Aatmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan 3.0 unveiled in November 2020 ahead of Diwaliwas worth Rs.2.65 Lakh crore. Of the total amount the maximum of Rs.1.45 Lakh Cr wasallocated to give a boost to manufacturing activities.

The business of Kriti was affected more in second wave as compared to first wave duringpeak seasons however with a focused attention on other non-seasonal products and betterinventory management Kriti has been able to maintain the volumes by registering marginalgrowth in different verticals and achieving better efficiency and cost reduction in FY2020-21.
