Figure 3: No Copyright Infringement Intended
- The National Statistical Office (NSO) released the First Advance Estimates (FAE) for the current financial year (2021-22 or FY22).
What is your first GDP forecast?
- First introduced in 2016-17, usually released at the end of the first week of January.
- These are the "first" official estimates of how GDP is expected to grow this year.
- However, it is also a "provisional value" because it was announced long before the fiscal year end (April to March).
- FAE will be released shortly after the end of the third quarter (October, November, December).
- It does not include formal third quarter GDP data released as part of the Second Preliminary Estimate (SAE) in late February.
- FAE is derived by extrapolating the available data.
- From a budgetary perspective, it's important to note what happened to nominal GDP-both absolute levels and their growth rate.
- Real GDP, or GDP after deducting the effects of inflation, is the key figure derived.
- All Budget calculations start with the nominal GDP. Real GDP = Nominal GDP — Inflation Rate The difference between the real and nominal GDP shows the levels of inflation in the year.
- GDP Growth: India's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is expected to grow 9.2% this fiscal year after shrinking 7.3% in the previous fiscal year.
- It is underpinned by increased production in agriculture, mining and manufacturing.
- “Mining and quarrying (14.3%)” and “Commercial, hotel, transportation, telecommunications and broadcasting related services” (11.9%) recorded significant increases.
- After that, the manufacturing industry will increase by 12.5%. The growth rate for the past 12 months is estimated to be 3.9% in the agricultural sector in 2010, which is higher than the growth of 3.6% in the previous fiscal year.
- Low consumer spending: Demand for consumer spending remains low, and investment in the economy and government spending are expected to improve.
- Private consumption typically accounts for more than 55% of total GDP. Levels are expected to remain widely maintained at the 2019-20 level.
- Such weak private demand will make it difficult to sustain economic growth in the coming months and years.
Gross domestic product:
● This is the monetary value of all manufactured goods and services produced in the country during a particular period.
● It provides an economic snapshot of a country used to estimate the size of an economy and its growth rate.
● It can be calculated in three ways using spending, output, or income, and can be adjusted around inflation and population size to gain deeper insights.
Gross Value Added:
● It is the value of production minus intermediate consumption and is a measure of the contribution of an individual manufacturer, branch, or sector to growth.
● It gives a rupee value for the number of goods and services produced in the economy, after deducting the costs of the inputs and raw materials used to produce those goods and services.
