economic survey 2022

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will table the Economic Survey for 2021-22 today, January 31, in the Lok Sabha. The Economic Survey will be presented in the Lok Sabha after the president’s address to both houses of Parliament. The Economic Survey is released a day before the Union Budget is presented in Parliament.

This year’s Economic Survey is expected to predict a growth rate of around 9 percent for the next fiscal year, FY22-23. Last year, the Economic Survey for 2020-21 predicted that the current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2022, will see a GDP growth of 11 percent.

What is the Economic Survey?

The Economic Survey is a financial document that is presented annually to review the economic development in the country over the past financial year. The survey provides detailed statistical data of all the sectors including agricultural, industrial, employment, industrial production, exports, prices, among others. Besides this, it also evaluates changes in other areas of the Indian economy, such as the money supply and foreign exchange reserves.

The Economic Survey is divided into two parts- Volume 1 and Volume 2. Volume 1 is about the economic challenges that the country is facing whereas Volume 2 gives an analysis of the previous fiscal year.

Who prepares the Economic Survey?

The Economic Survey is prepared by the Economics Division of the Department of Economic Affairs of the Finance Ministry under the overall guidance of the Chief Economic Adviser (CEA). It is only released after it is approved by the Finance Minister.

What changes India will witness in this year’s Economic Survey?

CEA generally prepares the document but this year’s Economic Survey has been prepared by the principal economic adviser and other officials as the post remained vacant following Krishnamurthy Subramaniam’s term that ended in December. This will be the first Economic Survey to be presented by V Anantha Nageswaran. The government has appointed economist V Anantha Nageswaran as the next CEA just days before the release of the Economic Survey.

This year the Economic Survey is likely to be presented in a single volume. Volume 1 which tells about the economic challenges that the country is facing may not be presented in Parliament today. Volume 2 contains a sectoral analysis of the economy of the previous fiscal year that will be tabled today at 3:45 pm.

What is the significance of the Economic Survey?

Union Ministry of Finance presents the Economic Survey every year. The Economic Survey is regarded as the flagship annual document of the Finance Ministry that provides a summary of all the economic development across the country that happened in a particular financial year. It not only examines the country’s macroeconomic status over the prior fiscal year but also provides an outline for the upcoming fiscal year.

Why Economic Survey is presented a day before Union Budget and not on the same day?

Economic Survey maps out a roadmap for India’s economy going into the next financial year. The reason for presenting an Economic Survey is to review the overall economic performance of the country during the year in order to give a better understanding of the Union Budget.

The survey is largely used to determine the country’s priorities for the coming fiscal year, as well as which sectors in the Union Budget require additional focus. In 1964, the Economic Survey was separated from the Budget and released ahead of time to provide a context of the latter.

When was the first Economic Survey of India presented?

In 1950-51, the first Economic Survey was presented. It was introduced with the Union Budget up to 1964. From 1964 onwards, it has separated from the Union Budget and presented a day before.

A Gujarat-based businessman and his wife have donated their lifetime earnings of Rs 200 crore and have taken the decision to renounce all materialistic desires to become Jain monks. In February this year, Bhavesh Bhandari and his wife donated all their wealth during a ceremony. The Bhandari family, which hails from Himmatnagar, has been in the construction business. The family decided to follow in the footsteps of their 16-year-old son and 19-year-old daughter, who adopted monkhood in 2022.

Bhavesh Bhandari, who belongs to a Jain family, had been a part of construction business in Ahmedabad and Sabarkantha and was accustomed to a life of luxury and prosperity from a young age. The Bhandari couple was accompanied by 35 individuals in February and led a 4 km procession during which they donated all their belongings, from mobile phones to air conditioners. A short video clip from the event shows the couple wearing regal attire on top of a chariot and making donations. Adorned in rich attire and jewellery, they stood atop a truck adorned to resemble a chariot, tossing garments and banknotes to the people standing below,

After the couple made their pledge on April 22 to adopt monkhood, the couple is going to break all familial relations and renounce any material possessions and desires. Afterwards, they will begin a barefoot journey across India and will sustain themselves solely on alms.

According to reports the couple will be allowed to own two white garments, an alms bowl, and a rajoharan, a white broom used by Jain monks to clear insects from an area before sitting — a symbol of the non-violent path which they follow. In a similar incident in January, the 8-year-old daughter of a Gujarati diamond merchant renounced material comforts and worldly desires to embrace monkhood. Devanshi Sanghv had participated in a grand procession with camels, elephants, horses and great fanfare before embracing a life of monkhood.

Among the seven candidates is Chhatrapati Udayanraje Bhosale, the 13th descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who will contest from Satara, Maharashtra, and Abhijit Das Bobby, who represents Diamond Harbour in West Bengal.

The current MP for the Trinamool Congress, Abhishek Banerjee, has been paired against Abhijit Das Bobby, who contested unsuccessfully for the Diamond Harbour seat in the general elections of 2009 and 2014.

The 13th descendant of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Chhatrapati Udayanraje Bhosale, is another prominent figure on the list. He is contesting for the Satara Lok Sabha constituency in Maharashtra as a member of the BJP.

In the 2019 by-election, Bhosale—a former leader of the NCP who joined the BJP in 2022—lost the seat. There has been a back-and-forth in the seat on the Lok Sabha election candidate between the BJP and NCP.

Shashikant Shinde has received his ticket from the NCP (SP).

Shashank Mani Tripathi from Deoria and Thakur Vishwadeep Singh from Firozabad are the final candidates on the BJP’s 12th list.

In Uttar Pradesh, there are two seats.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Som Prakash’s wife Anita Som Prakash, who is a resident of Punjab, will contest for the Hoshiarpur seat in lieu of her husband.

Manjeet Singh Manna Miawind from Khadoor Sahib and Parampal Kaur Sidhu from Bathinda are the other two candidates, both of whom are from Punjab.
