How Can We Get The Growth Back On Track?

As we all know that the average growth is around 7% in earlier years as it comes under 4% after post-lockdown. Several factors have a remarkable role in India’s growth as most of the Indians are growing working-age. The growing savings and investment rates continued to late 2020, as the financial sector continues to proliferate.

The Indian Economy Will Slow Down Because These Sectors Suffer

1. Automobile Sector

No sale for these high-quality electronic goods such as cars, TV, Refrigerator, etc., as there is a higher production of all these goods. If a family has bought a new car, he does not think to buy a car for another six years. India There is also a business of luxury cars, is also goes down due to low capital. Daily car production in India by 25000 as there is more than one crore car lying in Indian warehouses. The government is improving public transportation in many cities. E.g., they do very well. Why should they buy a new vehicle in these crowded cities and stuck in the traffic?

2. Real Estate

Here the real-state business has played an important role, and all the corrupt black money lying in the archives came out of the broadcast. People need to understand that commodity prices are directly related to the average person’s income. Today in any metropolitan area, a person with a salary of 1 lakh per month cannot buy even a two BHK flat for 800 carpet space.

That in itself should have been a warning sign in the dipping of real-state business. The situation today is no different from the removal of the engineers. All the projects have been suspended. Indians should understand that a residential and non-investment home does not exist when land prices rise sharply in a short period. So the real sector can re-emerge if apartments are sold at 50% cheaper than the current market rate.

People who are working in the informal sector lost their jobs after demonetization occurs. So, all these things are equally responsible for the drastic economic slowdown, and it takes some time to back on track. The business and private sectors are slowly getting back on track that indeed helps in recovery.
