GDP Growth to Slow to 6 % in Oct-Dec 2016: Nomura
Japanese financial services major Nomura's office.

New Delhi: Demonetisation has stymied India's GDP growth and the October-December quarter show is likely to be around 6 per cent, while for January-March it could climb down to 5.7 per cent, forecasts a Nomura report.

According to the Japanese financial services major, the consumption and services, which were the fastest growing segments pre-demonetisation, were the worst-hit.

However a V shaped recovery is expected from the second half of 2017, it said.

"We expect GDP growth to slow from 7.3 per cent year-on-year in July-September 2016 to 6.0 per cent in October-December 2016 and 5.7 per cent in January-March 2017," Nomura said in a research note.

Earlier, Nomura had said in a report last November, that demonetisation could slow India's GDP growth to 6.5 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2016 against its estimate of 7.3 per cent and to 7.5 per cent in the first quarter of 2017 from 7.9 per cent.

Nomura said, "We expect a V-shaped recovery from second half 2017 due to the release of pent-up demand after remonetisation, wealth redistribution and lower lending rates."

Regarding the Reserve Bank's monetary policy stance, the report said a final 25 bps repo rate cut is likely in February, provided the government consolidates its budget deficit in 2017-18.

"Beyond February, we expect the RBI to stay on hold as we also expect both growth and inflation to rebound sharply in the second half of 2017," it added.

On December 7, the central bank kept interest rate unchanged despite calls for lowering it and also lowered the economic growth projection by half a percentage point to 7.1 per cent in the first policy review post-demonetisation.

The central bank will hold its next monetary policy meet on February 8.
