This estimate is also in line with the Reserve Bank of India’s estimate of down 7.5% estimated in December 2020. The RBI had revised upwards its previous forecast (down 9.5%), pegging the contraction in the economy at 7.5%.

The decline in nominal GDP is at a record low of 4.2% and is pegged at Rs 194.8 lakh crore for the year.
