3 lakh crore fiscal stimulus
New CII President TV Narendran said in his first press conference that a fiscal stimulus of Rs 3 lakh crore is needed to increase domestic demand in the economy.

5 trillion dollar economy
TV Narendran said that by 2025-26, a 5 trillion dollar economy is possible with 9 percent growth in the medium term. He said that there is such a positive situation that if the economy grows at the rate of 9 percent in the next three years, then by 2025-26 the GDP target of $ 5 trillion can be achieved. But if under the current situation, if the growth remains 6.5% in the next three years, then by 2026-27, the target of 5 trillion GDP can be achieved.
He said that a negative situation is that if everything remains bad, the global economy also deteriorates and the economy grows at the rate of 5% in the next three years, then this target will be met only by 2028-29. So it depends on what is the condition of the economy in the next three years.
