International monetary Fund (IMF) on 21 January 2014 said that India’s economic growth rate in the current fiscal will be 4.6 percent. In its statement the IMF said the Indian growth has picked up after the favourable monsoon season. The higher export growth along with the strong structural policies had also played an important role in supporting investment in the country.
