The Economic Survey 2022 was released yesterday and I found three interesting tweet threads on it. All the tweet threads show India’s movement forward. Then, now and boy, how !!!! I am re-posting Sanjeev Sanyal’s tweet thread here because he is not just a brilliant economist but also explains things that a lay person can understand.
The #EconomicSurvey2022 has just been presented in Parliament. It comes in 2 volumes- the first looks at overall macroeconomic and sectoral developments, and the second is a revamped statistical appendix #EconomicSurvey (1/16) @FinMinIndia @PIB_India @nsitharamanoffc
Indian Economy is estimated to have crossed the pre-pandemic level in 2021-22 with 9.2% growth (AE). Contact intensive services still impacted. #EconomicSurvey2022 #EconomicSurvey (2/16) @FinMinIndia @PIB_India@nsitharamanoffc
#EconomicSurvey2022 forecasts that GDP will grow by 8.0-8.5% in 2022-23. In the interest of transparency, all assumptions have been clearly laid out. This is more conservative than IMF’s 9% but still world’s fastest #EconomicSurvey (3/16) @FinMinIndia @PIB_India @nsitharamanoffc
Macroeconomic stability indicators look healthy and should provide a buffer from global uncertainty. Forex reserves at approx. US$635bn, equivalent to 13.2 months of imports #EconomicSurvey2022 #EconomicSurvey (4/16) @FinMinIndia@PIB_India @nsitharamanoffc

India – Then, Now and How !
There are four charts above where we can see things have changed as they were “then” to “now. The national highways, electrification, Jal Jeevan Mission and urban expansion, especially in the Golf Course road !!
Arun had rightly pointed out on Twitter that its “Bijli, Sadak, Paani” that every Govt promised but only Modiji’s government delivered on it. No wonder, he is the greatest Prime Minister our country has seen and will see in a long long time. That’s the cue, Rudaalis, go for it ! Bawl your heart out.
For fun do read this tweet thread – Not the India we grew up in.
