The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has cut India’s economic growth forecast to 7.0% from 7.4% for the financial year 2016-17 in the updated report of Asian Development Outlook 2016 due to weak investments, a slowdown in the country’s agriculture sector and the lack of available cash due to the government’s decision to ban high-denomination bank notes. Prior to this, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cut India’s growth forecast to 7.1% from 7.6% for FY 17 after the government’s decision to ban high denomination bank notes.
