The nation has achieved success in bringing the Covid-19 pandemic under control. The death toll due to this pandemic in India is extremely low as compared to other countries. Hence, this has enabled the government to restore the economy, and therefore, it is steadily getting back on track, the Minister claimed and expressed satisfaction. Meanwhile, the industrial sector has asserted that the Indian economy is all set for ‘V-Shape Recovery’. Moreover, the International Monetary Fund has estimated India’s economic growth by 11.5% in future.

Furthermore, as per the claims, these foreign direct investments will be on the rise shortly.
