According to experts, India has been among the better-performing countries in the last few months. That's courtesy a faster recovery in domestic demand after the Covid-forced disruptions and the government's focus on reviving the economy.

Based on the latest IMF projections, India's growth will rebound sharply to 11.5% in FY22 and 6.8% in FY23.
