Gaurav Garg, Head Research, CapitalVia Global Research Limited – Investment Advisor:
“The IMF on Tuesday projected an impressive 11.5% growth rate for India in 2021, making the country the only major economy of the world to register double-digit growth this year amidst the coronavirus pandemic. This projection could help the Indian market attract more foreign investors which could eventually help the economy to recover even faster.”
V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services:
“IMF revising global GDP growth upwards to 5.5% and India’s growth to 11.5% in 2021 is good news. The sharp turnaround in growth will ensure that the current trend of impressive corporate results will sustain. On the negative side, we had two consecutive days of FII selling in the market. It appears that the market is a bit apprehensive of some budget tax proposals which may not be market-friendly.”
