Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the pace of improvement within the economy remains quite expected. The rationale for this is often not only the exit of the sooner suppressed demand but also the arrival of latest demand. She said that this improvement within the economy are going to be sustainable. The allow subsequent fiscal year is to be presented within the next two months. The Federal Reserve Bank of India and therefore the government are working together to enhance the economy as soon as possible.

The Federal Reserve Bank of India kept policy rates unchanged on Friday thanks to high inflation. On this, the minister of finance said that this rise in inflation is seasonal and he's indirectly worried about it. At the 'HT Leadership Summit' conference, the minister of finance said that 'inflation, especially the increase in prices of food items, will moderate. 

Some experts believe that the rationale for this is often the increased demand and suppressed demand within the market during the lockdown period. He believes that this improvement within the economy will fall in reverse after the festive season is over

Sitharaman said that the products and Services Tax (GST) collection in two months stood at Rs 1 lakh crore. At an equivalent time, expansion plans of companies working in basic sectors show that there's additional demand within the economy.

The Federal Reserve Bank of India also announced its bi-monthly monetary policy on Friday. Meanwhile, the financial institution has forecast the economy to shrink by 7.5 per cent within the current fiscal year . This reflects a far better than expected October contraction of 9.5 per cent.
