The Global Economic Crisis: Impact on India and Policy Responses

Show Summary Details


India's financial sector is not deeply integrated with the global financial system, which spared it the first round adverse effects of the global financial and economic crisis and left Indian banks mostly unaffected. However, as the financial crisis morphed in to a full-blown global economic downturn, India could not escape the second round effects. The chapter discusses how the global crisis has affected India through three distinct channels: financial markets, trade flows, and exchange rates and identifies policy measures to restore the Indian gross domestic product growth back to its potential rate of 8–9% per year.
