The meeting is a precursor to Moody’s annual sovereign rating action. Officials highlighted the upward trajectory of growth in the June 2021 quarter and  fiscal deficit and borrowing numbers. 

Sanyal on economy

The country has enough fiscal resources and monetary space left for intervention, principal economic adviser Sanjeev Sanyal said on Tuesday. 

“Given how well revenues are doing currently, we can perhaps press the accelerator somewhat stronger on expenditure to accelerate the economy. But the way we will spend will be through capital expenditure,” Sanyal said at a CII organised event.
