With India witnessing the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, the outlook for economic growth remains intact. Nomura said its baseline projection for FY22 GDP growth is 13.5 percent year-on-year, compared with an estimate of -7.4 percent in FY21. Nomura said the second wave reaches high frequency data such as mobility and traffic, especially in the worst affected state of Maharashtra. “In our opinion, given that the second wave only started towards the end of March and the economy normalized quickly in January and February, the second wave is unlikely to have a major impact. on GDP growth in the first quarter, and our estimate of 1.0% over-year seems reasonable, ”the report says. However, an extended second wave with increased restrictions, according to Nomura, could impact the Q2 numbers.
