New Delhi, September 21

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has slashed India's economic growth projection for 2022-23 to seven per cent from 7.2 per cent earlier, citing higher than expected inflation and monetary tightening.

India's economy grew 13.5 per cent year-on-year in the first quarter of 2022-23, reflecting strong growth in services, ADB said in a supplement to its flagship Asian Development Outlook (ADO) report on Wednesday.

"However, GDP growth is revised down from ADO 2022's forecasts to seven per cent for FY2022 (ending in March 2023) and 7.2 per cent for FY2023 (ending in March 2024) as price pressures are expected to adversely impact domestic consumption, and sluggish global demand and elevated oil prices will likely be a drag on net exports," it said.

The ADO expects the Chinese economy to expand by 3.3 per cent in 2022 rather than the five per cent forecast earlier. Lockdowns from the zero-covid strategy, problems in the property sector, and weaker external demand continue weighing on the economic activity in China, said the report.
