Macro-economic situation worse: Assocham

Macro-economic situation worse: Assocham
India may not be heading towards a balance of payment crisis, but its macro-economic situation is worsening by the day calling for urgent steps to ensure no further damage is done to the economy, a survey of leading economists and select industry leaders has pointed out. Out of the 58 economists and CEOs covered under the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) poll in the last one week, as many as 53 said India's macro economic situation has suddenly worsened.

'India may not yet be heading towards a balance of payment crisis, but the macro-economic situation of the country is worsening by the day calling for almost emergent steps to ensure that no further damage is done to the economy,' Assocham said. It was a combination of flip-flop on domestic policies and the global uncertainties arising mainly from the troubled euro-zone which played a spoilsport for the Indian economy, it said.

'Breaking out of scams, one after the other, resorting to taxation policies which are perceived to be unfriendly to the global investors, political compulsions of the government in not pursuing the economic reforms are the major factors which have led to a worrying state of economy, which was booming till two years ago,' it said.

'The worst disaster is coming from a huge uncertainty on the rupee value and its free fall,' the survey said.
