Talking about GDP growth outlook, Parekh said, as quoted by the Economic Times, that “for the first quarter, we had contraction of 24 percent, but I am not too worried about that because India was in complete lockdown for most part of the quarter.” 

He added: “For this quarter, which ended in September, we are expecting -5 percent, and in the last quarter, we will be in positive territory. So, I remain reasonably optimistic about India’s potential.” 

The banker explained that India is a domestic consumption-based economy and demand is set to rise in the coming months. “We are consuming what we are producing, so demand has to increase. … I am very optimistic about India’s story in the short to medium term.” 

He also noted that, despite the shrinking economy, Indian companies have raised $31 billion in the past couple of months, indicating there is enough liquidity in the market.
