Sitharaman said – This book has come when questions related to sluggishness are being asked in the global economy, questions are also being raised about the country’s economy. Commendable solutions to the challenges that the global and Indian economy are going through are given in the book.

The country’s GDP growth declined to 5% in the April-June quarter. This is the lowest in the last 6 years. Thereafter, international agencies are continuously cutting GDP estimates for the current financial year. The RBI also reduced it to 6.1% from 6.9% in October.

The government has taken several steps in the last few months, such as corporate tax cuts and the creation of a fund of Rs 25,000 crore for stuck housing projects, to give a boost to the economy.
