Policy towards private enterprise and competition


2017-18: The authorities take steps to expand the formal economy. Competition in the banking sector increases as the authorities' efforts to improve capital allocation in the financial system increasingly have an impact.


2019-21: The government encourages more competition in agricultural markets, with a view to increasing rural incomes and reducing food price pressures for urban residents.


Policy towards foreign investment


2017-18: The government eases restrictions on foreign investment in sectors such as construction, manufacturing, defence and finance in order to attract foreign capital.


2019-21: Further liberalisation of the defence and financial sectors attract foreign investment. However, the multi-brand retail sector remains off-limits to foreign investors even as single-brand retail sees further liberalisation.


Foreign trade and exchange controls


2017-18: The government holds trade negotiations to open markets for Indian exporters. However, progress is slow (particularly in the important services sector), amid growing protectionist sentiment in the West.


2019-21: India continues talks on free-trade agreements, but significant capital controls remain in place.


Taxes


2017-18: Implementation of the nationwide goods and services tax brings India closer to being a genuine single market. The authorities widen the tax net and seek to increase tax compliance.


2019-21: Tax administration improves, helping to raise revenue and allowing the government to reduce some tax rates.


Financing


2017-18: A new resolution mechanism designed to tackle the challenge posed by rising non-performing loans on banks' and corporate balance sheets sees some success. Efforts to improve competition in the banking system see modest success.


2019-21: As banks' balance sheets improve, their ability to fund private investment expands. Competition from private-sector banks increases and reduces the market share of public-sector lenders.


The labour market


2017-18: The government liberalises labour laws only gradually ahead of the parliamentary election in 2019.


2019-21: Some labour market reforms are introduced, such as measures to boost female participation in the workforce and relax restrictions on overtime work.


Infrastructure


2017-18: The government's ongoing investments in improving road, rail, port and energy infrastructure begin to pay off.


2019-21: The fibre-optic telecommunications network is expanded, and the transport and distribution sectors are liberalised. The nuclear power industry continues to expand rapidly and renewable energy sources (such as solar) begin to play a larger role in the energy mix. Investment to improve the resilience of the agriculture sector rises.
