India growth story still encouraging

Even as the global investment majors are cutting their growth forecasts and putting a question mark over the speed at which our economy will grow, Niranjan Rajadhyaksha, the Mint’s executive editor in a recent column tries to analyze how the Indian economy has performed over the last few decades to peep into the future – so as to give us a correct picture.

Following are the key points that the expert makes:

  1. It seems very likely economic growth will be even more sluggish than it was in the previous year, and the most bearish forecasts suggest that we are headed for the worst year since the reforms of 1991. The slowdown in the first years of the current century was more typical of a cyclical downturn, because India then had very low inflation and a current account surplus. The situation now is much more complicated.
  2. Even as there is a growing consensus that no rapid recovery is in sight, there are rumblings that India is headed for a prolonged period of low growth. And some even fear that are already in a new normal.
  3. India’s growth rates began to climb after around 1980. The Indian economy has grown at an average 6.27% in the subsequent 32 years, over several economic cycles as well as the macroeconomic crisis of 1991. So even while it is likely that India is not set to revert to the high trajectory of 2004-08, it is not clear if it is about to sink to the growth levels seen in the Indira Gandhi years.
  4. Some of the structural factors that have sustained growth for more than three decades since 1980 are still in place. India has significantly higher savings and investment rates than it had through most of the past three decades, despite the recent fall in these rates thanks to the deterioration in public finances and corporate balance sheets. India is also an open economy with a large domestic market. And it has a large entrepreneurial class as well as a growing labor force. Even as the way India has been able to grow over the past 30 years offers hope there are also the stark examples of countries such as Brazil that made a mess of it.

Buy gold for Diwali, now

If you are planning to give away gift in gold – say a shiny new necklace for someone dear to you or a gold coin as a corporate gift or a gold-plated statue for branding’s sake – do not wait till Diwali. If gold is there on your mind for this festive season gifting and the upcoming wedding season, you may do it now.

If a Hindustan Times news report is to be taken into consideration, you may have to spend something close to Rs. 40,000 per 10 gm. Here are the scenarios and reasons behind it as stated by The HT staffer Manish Pachouly:

If you were taking heart in the minor fall in the price of the yellow metal in the first week of September – Rs. 31,700, experts say this slide is unlikely to last. The fall of the rupee against the dollar has already driven the price of the precious metal up from Rs. 28,270 on August 1 to Rs. 33,265 on August 28, amid a crackdown on imports by the Central government which is desperate to curb the outflow of foreign exchange.

Rising prices have already hit import volumes, with the amount of gold brought into the country dipping from 162 tonnes in May to just 47 tonnes in July. After the curbs, imports dropped to about 5 tonnes in August. Customers, meanwhile, are recycling old jewelry rather than buying fresh gold. “There is currently zero demand for fresh gold,” said Kumar Jain, spokesperson for the Bombay Bullion Association and owner of a Mumbai-based jewelry store.

In November, as demand soars further during Diwali – especially on Dhanteras which is considered the most auspicious day for buying gold — and ahead of the wedding season, experts say the price is expected to breach the psychological barrier of R40,000 per 10 gm. Since the curb on imports will most likely stay in place until February — in other words, all through the wedding season — the short supply could boost prices further.

“During the festive and wedding season, there will be a supply crunch and that could further increase the prices,” according to the All India Gems and Jewellery Trade Federation. With imports curbed, he said one key source of gold is sale by customers and investors.

 

Unique and innovative product range to gift

A well-known name in the domain of quality utility products of great value for modern Indian housewives, Prime Housewares, started its manufacturing activities more than two decades ago. Since then it has steadily progressed and has also got into imports high end superior quality products from across the world.
