Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is speaking on the Indian economy and its state on ‘Agenda Aaj Tak’ conclave’s ‘Economy Ka Booster Doze’ segment.
Meanwhile, the Indian economy remained on track to post the fastest growth among major economies this year as its GDP expanded by a better-than-expected 8.4 per cent in the July-September quarter to cross pre-pandemic levels.
The GDP growth in the second quarter of the current fiscal (2021-22) was lower than the 20.1 per cent expansion in the previous quarter — which largely reflected a bounce back from last year’s crash — but was better than the contraction of 7.4 per cent in July-September 2020, official data released on Tuesday showed.
