    Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today (31st January 2020) tabled the Economic Survey 2020. The economic survey is an annual document of the finance ministry, which provides comprehensive details about the state of the Indian economy, and reviews the economic progress made and issues faced in the past year.

    The 2 volume survey ( Volume I and Volume II), which was printed in LAVENDER Color (same as the colour of the new 100 rupee note), was prepared by Krishnamurthy Subramanian (Chief Economic Adviser)

    Stating that the Indian Economy has bottomed out, the economic survey 2020 has projected India's economic growth at 6 per cent to 6.5 per cent in the next financial year. The government has estimated growth at 5% for 2019-20, which would be lowest in 11 years. 

    The Theme of Economic Survey 2020 is "Enable markets, promote 'pro-business' policies and strengthen 'trust' in the economy". 

    The survey suggests framework to enable ethical wealth creation in India, which will in turn propel growth and help India become a $5 trillion economy by 2025.

    This survey gives a clear picture of the country's economic health and a sneak peek into the Budget 2020 to be by our finance minister tomorrow. Here are the major highlights of Economic Survey 2020. You can download PDF Version of these highlights from HERE.

    Quick Review of Economic Survey 2020

    • Prepared by : Krishnamurthy Subramanian 
    • Color : Lavender
    • Theme : Enable markets, promote 'pro-business' policies and strengthen 'trust' in the economy.
    • India’s dominance as global economic power for three-fourths of economic history manifests by design.
    • Kautilya’s Arthashastra postulates the role of prices in an economy (Spengler, 1971).
    • Historically, Indian economy relied on the invisible hand of the market with the support of the hand of trust :
      • Invisible hand of the market reflected in openness in economic transactions.
      • Hand of trust appealed to ethical and philosophical dimensions.
    • Post-liberalisation, Indian economy supports both pillars of the economic model advocated in our traditionalthinking.
    • The survey illustrates enormous benefits accruing from enabling the invisible hand of the market.
    • Exponential rise in India’s GDP and GDP per capita post-liberalisation coincides with wealth generation.
    • Survey shows that the liberalized sectors grew significantly faster than the closed ones.
    • Need for the hand of trust to complement the invisible hand, illustrated by financial sector performanceduring 2011-13.
    • Survey posits that India’s aspiration to become a $5 trillion economy depends critically on : 
      • Strengthening the invisible hand of the market.
      • Supporting it with the hand of trust.
    • Strengthening the invisible hand by promoting pro-business policies to : 
      • Provide equal opportunities for new entrants.
      • Enable fair competition and ease doing business.
      • Eliminate policies unnecessarily undermining markets through government intervention.
      • Enable trade for job creation.
      • Efficiently scale up the banking sector.
    • Introducing the idea of trust as a public good, which gets enhanced with greater use.
    • The survey suggests that  policies must  empower transparency and  effective enforcement using  data  and technology.

    Key Highlights of Economic Survey 2020

    • Economic Survey 2020 talked about a new phrase called ‘Thalinomics’ which is the economy of a plate of food in India. It says that food plates are becoming more affordable in India now indicated improvement in the welfare of the common man. Survey said that Thali price moderation led to Rs 10,887 gain per household per year. The survey claimed that a whopping 2.62 crore jobs were created in India during 2011-12 to 2017-18.
    • India's economic growth is expected to "strongly rebound" to 6-6.5 per cent in 2020-21 from 5 per cent estimated in the current fiscal. The Survey said there are tentative signs of bottoming out of slowdown in manufacturing activity and global trade, which will have a positive impact on growth in the next fiscal.
    • Considering the urgent priority of the government to revive growth in the economy, the fiscal deficit target may have to be relaxed for the current year, the survey said.The Economic Survey 2019-20 has proposed India can create well-paid four crore jobs by 2025 and eight crore by 2030 by integrating “assemble in India for the world” into government’s Make in India initiative and exporting network products that can give substantial push to India’s target of becoming a $5 trillion economy.India's GDP growth is neither overestimated nor underestimated and the concerns on data are unfounded. It said that cross-country comparisons are fraught with risks of incorrect inference due to various confounding factors that stem from such inherent differences.
    • Government interventions like debt waiver or food subsidies end up creating distortions in the functioning of the free market. The Survey says that debt waiver scehems disrupt credit culture and disrupt formal credit flow to the very farmers it aims to benefit.
    • The country needed to spend $1.4 trillion on infrastructure to remove the constraints in growth, as power shortages, inadequate transport and poor connectivity affects overall growth performance, and to achieve a GDP of $5 trillion by 2024-25.
    • India's balance of payments position improved to USD 433.7 billion by September 2019 from USD 412.9 billion of forex reserves in March 2019, says Economic survey 2019-20. India's foreign reserves are comfortably placed at USD 461.2 billion as on 10th January 2020. Further, the external debt levels remained low at 20.1 per cent of GDP by the end of September 2019.
    • The Economic Survey has pinned its hope on uptick in growth of cumulative GST collections in October 2019 and November-December to contain fiscal deficit at the budgeted 3.3 per cent for FY2020.
    • The Survey suggested providing ESOPs to public sector bank employees to enable them to become owners in the banks. Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) will incentivise the bank employees to embrace risk-taking and innovation continually, it said.
    • It takes more documents to open a restaurant in Delhi as compared to documents needed for a license to procure new arms and major fireworks, says the Economic Survey for 2019-20.
    • Funding of the Rs 102 lakh crore National infrastructure pipeline recently unveiled by the Indian government “would be a challenge”, the Economic Survey for 2019-20 said.
    • The survey cited a new selloff mode. In the model, the government can transfer its stake in the listed CPSEs to a separate corporate entity which would be managed by an independent board and would be mandated to divest the government stake in these CPSEs over a period of time.
    • As per the pre-Budget survey, services exports have outperformed goods exports in the recent years, due to which India's share in the world's commercial services exports has risen steadily over the past decade to reach 3.5 per cent in 2018, twice the share in world's merchandise exports at 1.7 per cent.
    • Indian companies garnered nearly Rs 74,000 crore through public issuance of equity and debt during April-December this fiscal, a 66 per cent jump from the preceding financial year, with rights issue emerging as the most preferred route for financing business needs. Companies had raised Rs 44,355 crore in the April-December period of 2018-19.
    • In India, affordability of vegetarian 'thalis' improved more compared to non-vegetarian 'thalis' in last 13 years. Affordability of vegetarian 'thalis' improved by 29 per cent while that for non-vegetarian 'thalis' by 18 per cent from 2006-07 to 2019-20. As a result, an average household of five individuals that eats two vegetarian 'thalis' a day, gained around Rs 10,887, on average per year, while a non-vegetarian household gained Rs 11,787, on average per year.
    • The Survey pointed out high drop out rates at various levels of schooling and lack of affordability in higher education as areas of concern. The Survey emphasised that Samagra Shiksha 2018-19, was launched to envisage school education as a continuation from pre-school to senior secondary level to provide access to education to all.
    • According to the Survey, foreign tourist arrivals to India on e-visas, which are available for 169 countries, have increased from 4.45 lakh in 2015 to 23.69 lakh in 2018 and stood at 21.75 lakh in January-October 2019, recording nearly 21 per cent year-on-year growth in the tourism sector.
    • India's mineral output has witnessed a notable turnaround on account of reform measures initiated by the government.

    Leave a Comment
    The President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro is on a 4 day visit to India. This is his 1st ever visit to our country. During this visit, he will be attending the prestigious 71st Republic Day Parade of India on 26th January 2020 as the Chief Guest. He will be accompanied by 8 ministers, four members of the Brazilian Parliament, senior officials and a large business delegation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had invited him to India during the BRICS Summit in November 2019. Bolsonaro has been the 38th president of Brazil since 1 January 2019.

    The main aim of his visit to India is to "re-energise" the bilateral strategic partnership by boosting trade and investment, and deepening cooperation in key sectors such as defence and energy. He will also hold talks with our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Ram Nath Kovind. A total of 15 MOUs along with the investment protection and facilitation treaty will be signed during this visit.

    Important Note : This will be the 3rd time that a Brazilian President will be the Chief Guest at the Republic Day.
